Verdict

BALLYLIN posted a much improved effort when runner-up here on only her second start and should be in the firing-line with any further progress. She's less exposed than both Three Questions and Our Amazing Grace while Rigel's Halo is another with plenty of scope.

Verdict

THREAT has not been at her best on the Turf course here recently but drops down in class as she returns to the main track and won more valuable claimers than this last year. Indominus has every chance on the back of a recent second while Milbra and Jamie's Dancer have the past form to figure.

IZZY THE WARRIOR has leading claims on last month's second here in a more valuable contest. A repeat effort should see him go very close. Tea And Cricket needs to prove his recent success was no fluke while Grand Nene and Great Lou are both capable of getting involved on their best form.

Verdict

MO SMART is partnered by John Velazquez and as such is preferred to stablemate and fellow newcomer Ox Eyed Daisy. The Pletcher filly also makes more appeal than Godolphin's Gone To Austin with Swan Of The Nile and Classy Shackles looking best of those with experience.

Verdict

MARCH X PRESS looks the one to beat having won a tougher stakes race than this at Saratoga last year. She's preferred to stable companion Treasure For Gold, who made a winning start here last summer. Mrs. Ramona G. and Picara look the main threats to Todd Pletcher's likely favourite.

Verdict

Verdict

GIANNA SCHICCHI is another off the Todd Pletcher conveyor belt of expensive newcomers. She's a $525,000 daughter of War Front and preferred to Snuck Out and Too Cool To Dance of the first-timers. Figarella's Queen and Godolphin's Mockery are likely improvers and others to consider.
