Verdict

There is a well bred first timer in the first, GRANDE MAESTRO - follow the betting. FALKLAND speedy cut when trying Scottsville and was not disgraced. He 'won' his Barrier Trial on this surface and has the best of the draw. BRAVO ZULU should have won by now. He has a wide draw this time. BEAUFORT is also overdue and the longer trip could suit. More to consider - tough opener.

Verdict

BEAUFORT has a fair amount in hand on form and looks to have a straightforward task. Falkland can also play a leading role, while Bravo Zulu is in the running for a share of the minor money.

Verdict

LOVELY LUCCA confirmed the potential of her debut third as she found only one better in her second try. If taking to the surface she should be the one to catch. GYPSY QUEEN is holding form and has drawn a bit better than LOVELYLUCCA. She can make a race of it. ROSE HILL can score her overdue maiden win. PRESS MY BUTTON and LOVEMETWOTIMESGIRL can show more today.

Verdict

ROSE HILL should be bang there but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Lovely Lucca is preferred for the forecast , while Irish Marsh deserves some consideration as well first time out.

Verdict

BLAZE OF GOLD won his fourth start as he liked and this was from the widest draw in the race. He does make his handicap debut in a tough field but could be progressive enough. VIENTO was in top form before rest. He is on a hattrick on this surface and must not be taken lightly. WALTZED HOME loved racing off a lower rating for his new yard. KING'S COMMAND must have a say.

Verdict

WALTZED HOME continues to operate somewhere near his peak and looks the one they all have to beat. Cat's Legacy makes most appeal among the rest, while School Run looks another that has to be reckoned with.

Verdict

MARCH PREVIEW has been showing in sprints but is bred for this kind of distance. He has a decent draw here and has every chance. CUDUIARI finally scores a decent draw and he could show what he is really made off. He is dropping in trip. Stable mate KEEP ON CHOOGLIN is knocking at the door and should be on top of them. REGENT SEVEN is top rated and must be respected.

Verdict

CUDUIARI looks the one to be with, albeit narrowly but it's an open race. Roy's Roll's Royce makes most appeal of the rest, while March Preview looks best of the others.

Verdict

FLAMENCO DANCER has been mostly consistent over shorter and on pedigree should be even better. She may have matured and can improve on her previous try over the longer trip. ROY'S PONY loves the track and does well this distance. She earned over further and must be taken seriously. ARGENTEUS was a bit disappointing last but is worth another chance. VIVA LE BLEU can improve.

Verdict

DESTINY DUCHESS just about gets the nod but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Skyfire can get the better of the others for second, while Sweet Treat is prominent among those with minor place claims.

Verdict

VICTORY TRIP caught the eye in a better race on average merit ratings. She is improving again and perhaps is maturing. She can finally score on the surface. GO WITH FLO was making the right moves until going further from a wide draw. She will have every chance here. SARABI will bag another as her rating is coming down and she is holding form. STOCKADE can upset in this class.

Verdict

VICTORY TRIP's recent runs have had a lot to like about them and she seems likely to take all the beating. Gotoluvher is the most realistic option for second, while Go With Flo comes into calculations for third place.

Verdict

MOON BIRD showed promise in the Western Cape and then wasn't disgraced on his local debut. He has Marcus up on poly debut and could be the one to watch. MBALI was supported to win over further and is obviously versatile. She takes on boys this time and has a wide draw. FIELDMARSHAL FENIX drops in ratings and may just find top form. GADGET MAN is back over his best trip.

Verdict

FIELDMARSHAL FENIX just about appeals most in this field but will need to steer clear of any trouble. Pathway To Glory would be our next pick, while Moon Bird is another worth looking at.

Verdict

LIVE IN LOVE has had two runs and done well from wide draws in those. She could be hard to beat if staying the longer trip. INCOMODATION finished just behind LIVE IN LOVE and has shown potential in an earlier race as well. But she needs to improve on her poly performances. ASIANA showed good pace on turf last and will try to get away on poly. More with claims.

Verdict

PALACE MYSTERY has been hard to fault in recent runs and just about gets the nod in this field. Alisio looks only to be playing for second at best, while Live In Love is another that could go well.
