Verdict

BUSATTO doesn't make it to the track too often nowadays but is useful at his best and is back on a good mark. He will face stiff opposition, however, from a pair of lightly-raced types in Sea Skimmer and Au Coeur.

Verdict

CIRCLE DREAM is best judged on his maiden win rather than his last run, and with that in mind, this drop back in trip looks a positive. Trial-winner Waqqad should put up a good showing, while Jockey Joe is a likely improver.

While SYNCOPATION may be handicapped more on his trainer's reputation than actual form substance, he still makes plenty of appeal in a race full of exposed types. Fear The Fury showed more last time and can chase him home, while Fast Enough may pick up the pieces from behind.

Verdict

In a maiden that lacks depth, LAVASPIN can make a winning debut. Stable-companion Kunani is open to improvement and ought to go well too, while the solid form is represented by Loures.
