Verdict

RIVER OF JANUARY has been expensive to follow, but should be looking for this trip and meets a moderate bunch. SHANTYTOWN also tries ground, but will go close if effective beyond sprints. WHAT A MOON definitely stays, and is another with obvious claims. RAM TRIP and 'experienced' maiden MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI can both earn.

Verdict

WHAT A MOON is in good heart right now and looks the one they all have to beat. Mighty Mississippi is high up there among the others, while Ram Trip is one to bear in mind as well.

Verdict

ROY'S NOVICE is holding form, and has a great chance to exit the maiden ranks. GO THULI GO has some well beaten places in Gauteng, but that may be good enough here. VESPER is lightly raced and making steady improvement. LUNGI is best this trip and can earn minor stake.

Verdict

GO THULI GO has a fair chance of making all if not disadvantaged by this different trip. Roy's Novice could provide the main danger, while Spirit Bird is another with a place chance.

Verdict

MARK MY CARD gets going too late, but with a small field and Marcus should be closer to the action. Big chance. KAHULA has good form, but also runs 18 Feb. SHIRLEY VALENTINE can pop up at best.

Verdict

INTO THE GROOVE has been running well and should give backers a run for their money. Mark My Card is the most likely danger, while Shirley Valentine also has claims.

Verdict

BURNBURRY is holding form well on poly, and will go close from pole position. WILLOWGRANGE bounced back to best last time, and will threaten if repeating. Much the same applies to the unreliable EXPRESSO MARTINI. STREETS OF GOLD beat a subsequent easy winner in the maidens and has to be respected. EINA also has to be considered on current form.

Verdict

TOO FREE TOO has been operating at a solid level lately and could be difficult to catch. Maybe could emerge as the main danger, while Streets Of Gold also merits respect.

Verdict

TOLTEC has never run unplaced on Poly, and seems sure to be there again. JACKMAN brings solid Gauteng form, and is a runner if effective this surface. ROY'S TAXI came right back to best last time, but is unreliable. SILVER CENT has upset potential.

Verdict

OLIGARCH is in good heart right now and seems likely to take the beating. Toltec is probably the main opposition, while Honest Prince edges it as the selection for third.

Verdict

STRUMMER is never far off, and may be now be looking for this trip. Each way prospects in open race. SOLDAT just won a Maiden at the Vaal, but could threaten this class. TUSCAN is well drawn, and now back in form, and has a shout again. BELUGA BERRY, VIKING RED, and FANTASY ART are others worth considering.

Verdict

FRANCO has generally been running well and should make a bold show. Viking Red is also fancied to take a hand, while Beluga Berry is another likely to be on the premises.

Verdict

TIMED TO PERFECTION makes her poly debut, but has toe, and could go very well. CLASS ACT has won two of her last three this surface, and is a serious threat. RUSSIAN GIRL is holding form, and has a good apprentice. TWEED VALLEY and VAMPIRELLA are usually not far off.

Verdict

TOUCH OF MAGIC's recent runs have been likeable on the whole and she is up to winning this. Tweed Valley should be thereabouts as well, while Miss Millionaire is another to come into the reckoning.

Verdict

Not a strong field, and on his latest EMERALD VICTORY will never have a better chance to exit the maiden ranks. VIA CON DIOS has a shout if at very best, while GREENLIGHT GATSBY should do better back on poly. KING'S MUSIC and CAPTAIN COBALT have done enough to have claims as well.

Verdict

EMERALD VICTORY is in a good vein of form and has a fair chance. King's Music has the strongest claims of the others, while Captain Cobalt merits respect also.

Verdict

SEATTLE SILVA went closest in her only previous poly run, and has a top chance. ARCTIC SWIFT is also best on poly, and will be involved if this isn't too sharp. TRAVEL GUIDE and SWEET SHAYNA have both gone close in similar races recently and would not be shock winners.

Verdict

TRAVEL GUIDE couldn't satisfy backers last time, but still appeals as the likeliest winner here. Sweet Shayna is taken to follow the selection home, while Seattle Silva might well have a say as well.
