Verdict

BASE RUNNER showed something in his penultimate race and must have some potential. He has a decent draw this time and blinkers fitted. EDGE OF GLORY is knocking at the door now but has a wide draw again. Still he should be there. TURF CONQUEROR can score an overdue win back on the poly. He is a serious runner on form. DE LAGO'S FUTURE and POT LUCK have scope for improvement.

Verdict

TURF CONQUEROR looks to be the safest option but has little leeway if anything goes wrong. Prince Ponti could provide the main threat, while Royal Rustler might well have a say too.

Verdict

DUSTY BUTTON could have won her penultimate if not over-racing then. She disappointed when favourite last time but could be ready after rest and deserves another go. GEORGINA has had double the chances and has gone close a few times. She can get it right from a better draw. FAST LOOKS is holding form and needs to confirm on the poly. SYMPHONY IN SEVEN and KHETIWE have claims.

Verdict

SYMPHONY IN SEVEN has been hard to fault in recent races and has a fair chance. Khetiwe is most likely the main opposition, while Fast Looks deserves some consideration too.

Verdict

If reserve SHAMROCK gets in - she could be a big runner - this is as open as it gets. MADAM AL didn't settle over further last time and should enjoy the drop in trip. THE MATADOR has improved with blinkers and will better her more recent runs on the poly. FONTEYN is an older runner that should have won by now. JEWEL IN MY CROWN has Highveld form and could enjoy the poly.

Verdict

FONTEYN was beaten when prominent in the market last time, but looks the one to be on once again. Alesnado could be the main opposition, while The Matador commands a closer look as well.

Verdict

MIDNIGHT MESSENGER should be a big runner if his local debut is anything to go by. He was a fast finishing second and had to switch in that race. MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI is knocking hard and the older local hope would be deserving. WHITEWATER RAPIDS hasn't bad form and now has a plum draw. He should get closer. The Dennis Bosch coupling could be ones to watch.

Verdict

MIDNIGHT MESSENGER showed much improved form on his latest start and has leading claims. Mighty Mississippi has the best claims of the others, while Sovereign Soldier shouldn't be discarded.

Verdict

SCRABBLE had no finish at the end of his last race here on the turf. He is better than that and it was a feature race. Expect him to be effective back on the poly. ROCKET MASTER found one better in his last two and doesn't look like losing his form now. He should be right there. ROY'S TAXI is capable and has been dropping in ratings. Could surprise. MARCH PREVIEW has potential

Verdict

SCRABBLE should be in the mix but any trouble could put paid to his chance. Rocket Master looks the best bet for the runner-up spot, while Gold Chalice looks the one for the minor money.

Verdict

SHOW ME YOUR ROSIE won better than the margin suggested and could be on the up now that she is maturing. However she has drawn a bit wide. ROY'S SNOWDROPS didn't enjoy the drop in trip last time and a much better run is expected, especially from draw three. CAPTAINS MOLL was shocked by the 1000 metre trip last and may be most appreciative from a plum draw. More in it.

Verdict

ROY'S SNOWDROPS is operating at a solid level lately and is the one they all have to beat. Zinzara could provide the chief threat, while Show Me Your Rosie looks best of the remainder.
