Verdict

Tricky start to the BiPot. Pay careful attention to the betting market withregards to the chances of the newcomers. SALTORO RIDGE, SABBATICAL, LINE OFCONTROL and EMPERORS TRACTOR are of particular interest. Of the raced runners, COUNTING STARS, DAYONAUT, TALL MO, DANGER ROCK and MAGNIFICENT SEVEN must have chances. ORAKAL, ROMMEL, JOHNNY BLACK and CAPTAIN BUFFET can improve.

Verdict

DANGER ROCK just about appeals the most and has leading claims. Dayonaut is the rational second option, while Rommel is perhaps the most interesting of the others.

Verdict

The betting should again provide the best guide to the chances of the newcomers. SCARLETT SECRET, SPAM ALERT, TALLY-HO, BID BEFORE SUNSET and MUSCARI are of particular interest and any market support must be respected. Reserve runner PUMEZA has shown enough to contest the outcome should she take her place. WATERBABY, IT IS WHAT IT IS, GILLIAN and TOUGH LOVE have chances too.

Verdict

IT IS WHAT IT IS has been operating at a good level lately and is the one they all have to beat. Tough Love is the most prudent second choice, while Waterbaby has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

Verdict

WAITING FOR RAIN finished ahead of KING OF THE CORN last time and can confirm on these terms. The latter should strip fitter, though, and can pose more of a threat. ONE DIRECTION is in good nick and could have a say under bottom weight.

Verdict

FRIENDLY TIBBS is difficult to oppose on what he has shown and is quite a confident selection. One Direction could emerge as the chief threat, while Waiting For Rain is another that should go well.

Verdict

SEQUINED found only a subsequent Grade 1 winner too good over this trip in KZN last time out. If not inconvenienced by the travel, she should be hard to beat. HEART OF A LEGEND has the form to be competitive but faces a tough task from the draw. TOWNSHIP MELODY and SHADES OF PINK renew rivalry and can both feature with further improvement. LIBRA should have more to offer too.

Verdict

SEQUINED is up to taking this easily on the form she has shown and looks to have a straightforward task. Heart Of A Legend has to come into the equation too, while Township Melody is not out of it where the places are concerned.

Verdict

PALO ALTO will strip fitter and should improve plenty over the extra. LEADMAN had excuses last time and should be competitive if overcoming an awkward draw. SPECTRA FORCE is another likely improver over this distance. CRADLEOFGRATITUDE, WALL STREET TRADER, CAPE XTREME and BOLD ASSASSIN could feature if negating wide starting berths. ONE FOR ONE and COMMISSIONER could improve.

Verdict

CRADLEOFGRATITUDE is the tentative selection but has little margin for error. Spectra Force could be the sternest threat, while Leadman is perhaps the most interesting of those left.

Verdict

Open. HOIST THE MAST ran well on her comeback in her first start over this trip last time. Gusty frontrunner AMAZINGLY, in-form EMPIRE RISING and consistent TIME TO THINK are all closely matched on form. CAVALLERIA is capable at this level and over this trip. Both SAMSARA and THE JOY OF IT have scope to improve and could be better over this distance too. Respect WICKED KISS.

Verdict

KRYPTONITE's overall form just puts her out in front but she has little margin for error. Bushy Park is not one to underestimate however, while The Joy Of It also looks good for a place.

Verdict

DALIBHUNGA won on his return from a rest and would have improved since. He has plenty scope for improvement and should prove better than rated so could well follow up on handicap debut. WEEKEND WARRIOR has scope and could pose a threat in first-time headgear. Well-related GREENFLASHSUNSET is another likely improver. JAY ROCK and WAITINGFORTONIGHT are others to consider.

Verdict

SAINT DONAN has been hard to fault in recent races and seems the one they have to beat. Greenflashsunset is most likely the primary challenger, while Waitingfortonight edges it for third.

Verdict

MA FORTE led from start to finish when beating a subsequent winner and should have more to come. Fellow 3yo REGAL RUBY returned to form over this trip last time and could also have a say on her handicap bow. LACERTA boasts useful form and could make her presence felt too. SHARP PEG, SHIZAM and GIN FOR GENIUS have less scope but, on form, may pose a threat in receipt of weight.

Verdict

REGAL RUBY looks to have more or less the best credentials but will need to avoid any trouble. Shizam can come out best of the remainder, while Sharp Peg can scrap it out for third.
