Verdict

Hondo Wando and Painted Rock are of interest first time out and should be monitored for support in the betting while Most Distinct has shown ability, but the safest option appears to be ENERGETIC SREVA. Knocking hard on the door of late, he comes out on top on the speed figures and this looks his easiest assignment to date.

Verdict

Hope Restored looks to be getting the hang of things and can fight this one out with OH GOLLY MS MOLLY, who accounted for three of these rivals when filling the runner-up spot over this C&D latest. The latter is unexposed over this sort of trip and narrowly edges the vote, with Quakers Daughter rating best of the remainder.

Verdict

EDITORS RANSOM has been knocking hard on the door in this grade in recent months and is taken to gain a deserved success at the expense of Verdant, who was beaten by less than a length over C&D in December. Under The Rim looks the pick of the remainder.

COMMANDO KAT left his two previous efforts well behind when runner-up over 6f here latest and, with further improvement on the cards, he could make it fourth time lucky. His main threat may come from one of the newcomers, namely Windy City Richie and Three Rivers.

Verdict

BOWMAN'S SECRET has yet to run a bad race and looks the most likely winner. There was plenty to like about his second over an extended 1m here last time and the drop back in trip should help. Twelve Hundred and Static Kill are others worthy of consideration.
