Verdict

VICTORY CROSS had a valid excuse last time and the top merit rating was consistent prior. She has pole position so should have every chance. She should improve on her one earlier polytrack run. UNDER THE ROSE has done well enough on the poly and after flying up to finish second last time can go one better. LIKELY STORY could improve most though. RAPUNZEL can do better.

Verdict

VICTORY CROSS failed to justify market support on her most recent run, but is worth another chance. Under The Rose should be right in the mix too, while Mphumi also demands consideration.

Verdict

QUEEN'S BRIDGE showed his true potential after gelding and with blinkers fitted. He found just one better when backed and could reward followers this time. VESTED INTEREST was a good second at Scottsville in his last race and needs to reproduce that run on the poly. He has a decent draw for a change. WARRIOR'S STONE did better for an apprentice in hot form. He can only improve.

Verdict

GESTE's recent starts have been likeable in general and is much the one to aim at. Vested Interest is most likely the chief threat, while Queen's Bridge is also an interesting runner.

Verdict

CAPE FLING is back and will try to extend his one from one record over this track and trip. His West Cape form is very decent and being a well bred sort could still be on the up. CHICAGO BEAT gets going late in his races and may relish the longer trip. He has the best of the draw. CAT IN COMMAND is a specialist here but it has been a while since he won. Consider BOLD REIGN.

Verdict

CHICAGO BEAT just about appeals most in this field but any trouble could put pay to his chance. Son Of Silver could be the biggest danger, while King Django also commands respect.

Verdict

Just about all runners have claims in this contest and it should pay to go wide in exotic bets. ROYAL ROSE had excuses when back to her best trip last time. She deserves another chance especially from a decent draw. GINGER BISCUIT drops further in ratings and could be really effective now. She had a wide draw last time. SAVANNAH CAT, KEPT SECRET and MIDANSWER should be there.

Verdict

KEPT SECRET is running well enough to merit close consideration but hasn't much room for error. Class Act seems the most likely to step into the breach if the selection fails to deliver, while Royal Rose is one to bear in mind too.

Verdict

IN OTHER WORDS is very good on her day over this track and trip. She is well weighted here and she should be hard to beat in this company. Youngster A WOMEN'S WAY could be a big danger as she has the pedigree to go this longer trip. She has shown high class form. PEARL EMBLEM will try to get away racing upfront but has a bit to find on latest form. Consider SOUNDS POSITIVE.

Verdict

IN OTHER WORDS's overall form just gives her the edge but has little margin for error. Pearl Emblem seems the primary threat, while Littleblacknumber also commands a closer look.

Verdict

SEE THE SEA did well to keep going over a bit further here last time. She had a subsequent winner behind her and that form could be strong enough here.POWER HORSE found the winner too good in her last start but could step up on that performance as she did stumble at the start then. LIGHT HOUSE LADY could put a spanner in the works for locals as her Highveld form may be strong.

Verdict

SUMMER IN THE CITY is selected tentatively but hasn't much room for error. See The Sea is most likely the sternest threat, while Power Horse is another to take into acount.

Verdict

LIQUID RAINBOW had a wide draw on his polytrack debut and didn't run badly.He had only GOLD SAIL ahead and being the one with big scope for improvement could make the required improvement. Both have the pick of the draw. GOLD CHALICE is better than that last race and blinkers could see him get into the hunt. COUNT PHILIP is worth watching over the shorter trip. More can earn.

Verdict

GOLD SAIL has an emphatic advantage on form and is going to be tough to beat. Gold Chalice might be the answer to second spot, while Liquid Rainbow is the other candidate for the three.
