Verdict

SUNSHINE MINT was well clear of the rest when runner up on debut, and will take a power of beating. LADYSMITH is improving slowly and can challenge. HAMMIES FAN has a good money chance in this line up. Watch the betting on Kotzen first timers THE GREEN PARK and EXPEDITE.

Verdict

SUNSHINE MINT is quite tough to fault and could be difficult to catch. Ladysmith is most likely the principal challenger, while Hammie's Fan is also an interesting runner.

Verdict

STONEHENGE is down in class, and does best when allowed a soft lead, as is likely here. Respect. WAITING FOR RAIN is a reliable handicapper, and always runs on. GYRE is very similar, and has an effective if short finishing burst. BENJAN is never far off, while ONE DIRECTION is better than recent form.

Verdict

BENJAN gets a narrow vote but hasn't much room for error. Gyre looks the likeliest runner-up, while Stonehenge also requires respect.

Verdict

SEA FURY ran on strongly to dead heat with a subsequent winner last time. Huge runner. CRADLEOFGRATITUDE is well tried, but has to crack his maiden soon. POWER TOWER and COUNT ROSBERG are both limited, but can earn here, as can AFRICAN MESSIAH.

Verdict

CRADLEOFGRATITUDE improved greatly on his latest start after a below-par effort the time before and will be tough to beat. African Messiah may be the best bet for second, while Sea Fury is another to take into acount.

Verdict

SPAM ALERT has reliable maiden form, and would be a narrow first choice. MISS SMARTY PANTS, FASHION FORCE, and PERFECTPROPORTIONS are all lightly raced, and still improving. All look capable of winning a competitive little contest.

Verdict

MISS SMARTY PANTS just about appeals most in this field but can't afford to put a foot wrong. Spam Alert seems the leading challenger, while Eternal Night is not out of it for third place.

Verdict

WILLIAM THE BRAVE is undefeated since donning blinkers, and beat a strong Graduation field last time. Hard to beat. VISIGOTH is a Derby nominee, but is held on collateral form. ROYAL GINGER is a reliable handicapper, and can get in a blow. PACIFIC CHESTNUT, FLYING RYAN, OVERDOSE, and MR LOVER BOY are others worth considering.

Verdict

QUERARI'S SECRET should give a good account but can't afford for much to go wrong. Royal Ginger is likely to be waiting in the wings if the selection fails to deliver, while Desert Lark edges it so far as third place is concerned.

Verdict

Open contest. CORTADA runs on well, and weighted with a fighting chance. NORTHERN CORNER has been competitive against far stronger. WESTERN STORM always shows toe and keeps defying the handicapper. FIRE WALKER and PEN-CHAN alsohave an undeniable chance in a tightly handicapped contest. HEREFORD is totally unreliable, but can pop up at long odds.

Verdict

PEN-CHAN is operating at a good level lately and is much the one to aim at. Fire Walker could be the main threat, while Cardinal Call could well have a say too.

Verdict

Another tricky sprint. EMERALD GAL always tries her best, and will be there once again. SUNSHINE LADY is another reliable female, and with Fourie will be there. Youngster FOURS A CROWD is another with solid prospects. DUCHESS OF PRUSSIA is better than her post maiden effort, and can surprise.

Verdict

EMPIRE RISING looks marginally the pick of this bunch but can't afford to put a foot wrong. Emerald Gal is a viable alternative, while Glennie also needs a closer look.

Verdict

Yet another tough one. SPECTRA FORCE is holding form, and rates a solid each way chance against these. KING OF ACES' latest was too far, but on his 1400m form he has a solid shout. Likewise SPRING GOLD has done well since trying this trip, and must be respected. SABBATICAL has been disappointing, but suspect will start to show again sometime soon.

Verdict

SABBATICAL continues to run creditably and seems the one they have to beat. Trojan Quest seems the principal challenger, while Spring Gold looks third best.

Verdict

TRIP TO IBIZA showed a liking for this trip last time, and has to be included. ESTEEMAL is consistent, and has stable jockey back aboard. DUBAI QUEEN produced a decent post maiden effort, and can surprise. Three-year-olds STAR OF LONDON and SWIFT DANCER are both lightly raced, and can score in this class.

Verdict

TRIP TO IBIZA has a little in hand but any trouble could put paid to her chance. Swift Dancer is also in with a shout, while Elusive Touch is one to bear in mind as well.
