Verdict

CHATUCHAK made the expected improvement in his belated return to action last time, when touched off in 2nd over a similar trip. He should strip fitter and will have more to offer so can open his account. PRINCE ORACY should keep him honest, though, on the evidence of his comeback runs from a rest and gelding. BOY SCOUT has earning potential again. Watch newcomer BIG BOY BENJI.

Verdict

PRINCE ORACY is some way clear on form and is a straightforward pick. Big Boy Benji can also play a significant role, while Boy Scout comes into calculations for minor honours first time up.

Verdict

Good race. KAMPALA CAMPARI found only one better in a similar contest when fitted with blinkers last time. The headgear is removed but he should go close once more. PEROVSKIA, rewarded for consistency over shorter last time, is capable over this trip and should give another honest account. CARBON OFFSET and stable companions SUMMER SKY and CAPE FLING have Eachway chances too.

Verdict

CARBON OFFSET is just about the safest pick but others can't be discounted in an open contest. Kampala Campari is another who could have a big say in matters, while Summer Sky is another who could figure.

Verdict

PSYCHIC was unlucky not to have finished closer to EARL OF WARWICK last time. The latter has since confirmed his above-average ability with a close-up 2nd in a good maiden on Day 1 of the LQP festival. Both will have more to give so can contest the outcome. GREEN ARCHER, THE GOON SHOW, TYRANDEUS and DUE VOLTE could also improve to find the frame. HADARAT has earning potential.

Verdict

EARL OF WARWICK looks to have more or less the best credentials but has next to no margin for error. Hadarat seems the most likely to capitalise if the selection fails to deliver, while Psychic also comes into the reckoning.

R FourieMike Stewart
Verdict

Trainer Mike Stewart holds a strong hand. His record with jockey Fayd'Herbeis a good one, so FUJIN could be the pick from his yard. ZANADU receives weight from male rivals and will also be partnered by a top jock, so could havea say. GIBRALTAR GREEN, UNRIVALLED and EVOLVER could all pose a bigger threat, though, if building on their most recent displays. Watch DANCE A JIG.

Verdict

ZANADU is the one to beat. if not inconvenienced by this new trip. Dance A Jig is the most realistic option for second, while Gibraltar Green is the tentative selection for third. .

Verdict

MARION BELLE trounced her rivals when shedding her maiden tag over this trip in just her second start. She will have even more to offer, so can stake aclaim. REGAL RUBY caught the eye in her last start when sporting blinkers on her return from a rest. She should also have more to give. GIMME KATRINA was unlucky last time and could make amends. ROYAL CHIAN cannot be ignored.

Verdict

REGAL RUBY looks marginally the best of these but any trouble could put paid to her chance. Rebel's Idol is another who could play a major part in proceedings, while Marion Belle could also figure.

Verdict

BRAVE MOVE made light work of her rivals when winning a similar contest last time and a resultant five-point penalty may not be enough to prevent her from going in again. GLAMOROUS LIFE has more to do at this level but is progressive. Stable companion ORIENTAL OAK is capable in this grade but concedes chunks of weight. SKIP A BEAT, QING and ROCK ON WOOD aren't without chances.

Verdict

GLAMOROUS LIFE looks marginally the pick in this field but will need to steer clear of any trouble. Brave Move has the strongest claims of the rest, while Oriental Oak is another with a place chance too.

Verdict

Lightly raced mare AVIATRIX appears the most reliable of these and should be competitive if race ready after a break. Consistent GRANDIFLORA and last-start winners RUBYANA and LADY SUTTON could have a say if building on recent displays. However, the value could lie with KENNA who prove a different proposition at this level and over this distance.

Verdict

AVIATRIX's overall form just gives her the edge but she has little room for error. Rubyana is fancied as the best alternative, while Elegancia should go well too.

Verdict

Open. OLOYE and DUNTOUCHE have shown enough to be competitive so must be included. UNICORN makes most appeal, though, having improved over this trip when fitted with blinkers last time. HOLLYROOD PALACE, PRAIRIE SKY and SUMMER MOON are bred to appreciate the step up in trip so may have more to offer. AZINZA and STUDIO BLUES have earning potential too. Doesn't end there...

Verdict

OLOYE's recent efforts read very well and she has pretty strong claims. Duntoche seems the leading challenger, while Unicorn also commands respect.
