Verdict

ROKATENDA should have won at the Cape by now. He has met some decent sorts and perhaps in this league could finally reward his connections. MAKING MISCHIEF is best weighted and has honest form in the bank. She has become one paced in slightly shorter trips but must be respected in this field. AFORAWAY is lightly raced and could enjoy the marathon. LOS BARBADOS has a say.

Verdict

MAKING MIRACLES looks to have been found a good opening. if not foiled by this different trip. Aforaway is hard to ignore if looking elsewhere, while Rokatenda is another to consider.

Verdict

Many with scope for improvement. RUB OF THE GREEN showed potential in a sprint and on pedigree should be looking for the trip. FLAMENCO DANCER ran on well into second on debut on the poly. She could bring the form and improvement to the turf. ROY'S VOGUE raced far back and got into it late in her second try. EXCELLISTIC, SWEET TREAT and EMMA'S ORACLE all can improve.

Verdict

FLAMENCO DANCER is just about the pick in this line up and is probably the one to beat. Excellistic could be the one to benefit if the selection underperforms, while Roy's Vogue commands a closer look as well.

Verdict

DRAGEDA has been supported and showed improvement on the poly last time. He has drawn well in his first foray over the mile trip. AFRICAN PHAROAH ran third on debut after a slow start and must have ability. The Anton Marcus/Dennis Bosch combination is dangerous. RAM TRIP wasn't far off over this trip on the poly and from draw one can get closer. SLIGHTLY SCOTTISH has a say.

Verdict

DRAGEDA looks fairly difficult to fault and is much the one to aim at. African Pharaoh could provide the biggest competition, while Matthew Lips looks third best.

Verdict

DAWN CALLING is quite an accomplished one-time winner. She can bag her second career win if overcoming her draw and dictating with a light weight. But she has been costly to follow and rested youngster CAPTAIN AND MASTER could be ready for top competition. He has drawn ideally. ROY HAD ENOUGH has shown talent over further and with RED CHESNUT ROAD must be respected.

Verdict

DAWN CALLING is up to winning this with something in hand and is the one to be with. Red Chesnut Road is the next best alternative, while Captain And Master may be the one for third.

Verdict

LONDON CALL is prolific in these Pinnacle races. Once in his speedy stride he is hard to peg back. However he has drawn wide and prefers Scottsville. Many with claims past him. RODNEY just needed it last and from draw one could be running on best. MY PAL AL is always up there but does prefer poly to turf. BARBOSA is classy at best and is capable of a big run.

Verdict

LONDON CALL looks to have marginally the best credentials but it's an open race. My Pal Al will probably give the selection most to think about, while Kingston Boy is another with place prospects.

Verdict

An experiment for most as a rare 3000 metre race will test this field's tactics and stamina. MAIN PLAYER has decent form and could be up to it as he runs like he will stay. RUN RHINO RUN has run with better and he could go all the way in this class. SILENT OBSESSION is better than his latest try. He tries the track and could improve. IMPACT ZONE won a nice race last time.

Verdict

SABRE CHARGE looks to have just about the best chance but has little margin for error. Great Rumpus is tough to ignore if looking elsewhere, while Main Player is another to bear in mind too.

Verdict

NEPTUNE'S RAIN has run some cracking races from wide draws here. She was dangerous at Scottsville in a similarly tough race and can finally land win number two. Stable mate LUNAR RUSH is weighted to stay ahead of the former and has the best of the draw so should run a big race again. HASHTAG STRAT is speedy and would be deserving. MISS VARLICIOUS can pop up.

Verdict

CAPTAIN'S GIRL is running very well right now as her latest effort showed and she sets a good standard. Hashtag Strat could emerge as the chief threat, while Effortless Reward looks another that has to be reckoned with.

Verdict

All are useful with some surely headed for the top. HASHTAGYOLO was impressive on debut and the well bred Dynasty filly can only improve. She has to jump better though. FLICHITY BY FARR is another that jumps tardily but she has a flying finish and is waiting for this longer trip. FIORELLA has done little wrong and could be even better over this trip and more.

Verdict

LIGHT ON HER TOES is running really well right now as evidenced by her most recent effort and she has leading claims. Flichity By Farr looks to be playing for second at best, while Fiorella is another with place prospects too.

Verdict

A wide open race to end. OBVIOUS CHILD ran a much better race after two no shows. He is bred for this trip at least and has a plum draw. BASE RUNNER caught the eye on the poly track here last time and is a youngster that should not go backwards. AMRITSAR can go one better if stays the much longer trip.THE BYZANTINE and SHADOW CATCHER have both shown potential.

Verdict

THE BYZANTINE looks marginally the best of these but will need to avoid any trouble. Amritsar earns the vote for second, while Fly By Skye also demands respect.
