Verdict

LET ME FLATTER YOU has the strongest form of these having placed in more valuable maiden claimers on the west coast. She debuts for a new yard today and Irad Ortiz' presence in the saddle is another positive. The rest are only moderate at best with Bionsand and Mystery Lake preferred.

Verdict

Verdict

MR. JORDAN has obvious claims having won a stakes race before finishing runner-up in a Grade 3 contest here last month. He beat Richard The Great on both occasions and may be worth sticking with in this. The latter wasn't far away last time and can figure while Flemish Cap looks best of the remainder.

Verdict

CRUZ DIEZ ruined his chance with a slow start here last time and has been gelded since. That should help his concentration and he gets a tentative vote in something of a lottery. Smart Return, Harlan's Hunch, Passport To Chaos and Lead By Example are others on a long shortlist.

Verdict

MIRACLE HILL represents Jason Servis and the trainer can boast an outstanding strike rate with horses making their debut in maiden claimers. He may well prove good enough at the first time of asking with The Stifler and Infuriated other newcomers to note and To The Hilt perhaps best of those with experience.

Verdict

RACINGS MY GAME faced a much tougher task here last time having won on his penultimate start. He should be in the firing-line back at this level and go close. R Cat Daddy won a lower grade claimer recently and Here's To Mike has bits of form if at his best.

Verdict

STARSHIP JUBILEE was a dual Grade 2 winner at Woodbine last year and was caught close home in a stakes contest here last month. Kevin Attard's mare is the one to beat if at her best. Bonita has won less valuable stakes races and Surprise Wedding is still improving having won at Tampa last time.

Verdict

X Y JET made a successful return in a Grade 3 here in December having missed most of last year. He won the same race before landing this prize by over four lengths in 2016 and is the one to beat if in the same form. Bold Envoy is unexposed and could prove the main threat representing Todd Pletcher's powerful yard.

Verdict
