Verdict

Workriders. FLOWER OF CARMEL is pacy, and has a highly experienced rider. ROYAL MARINE can win this at best. CHINA WOLF went close in a similar contest in October, but has been rested since. REBEL'S BURST has had 33 starts, but has to get it right one day. MELISSATHEREBEL can feature if repeating debut.

Verdict

MELISSATHEREBEL will be happer at this trip than she was over further on her most recent run, and is worth another chance. Christofph could be the main danger on debut, while China Wolf is another worth looking at.

Verdict

RED SHIFT made an excellent debut, and the Andre Nel yard is heading back to form. The one to beat with natural improvement. MANETHEREN is far better than latest, and has to be included. SUPER PERFORMER may well be looking for the extra. BAYETO, TEUTONIC KNIGHT, and PILOT OFFICER also need to be considered.

Verdict

MANETHEREN has put together a good series of efforts lately and is just about the pick in this line up. Red Shift could be the one to benefit if the selection underperforms, while Big Boy Benji is also an interesting runner.

Verdict

ELUSIVE RUN looked promising in her second outing, and doesn't meet any stars here. Chance. HEMERO is steadily getting closer to winning, and has a decent shout. Very much the same goes for ANINA. MONEY BUYS LOVE, FINE LADY, OLOYE and DOUBLE ROSIE all have claims in a wide open heat.

Verdict

ANINA's overall form just puts her out in front but she hasn't much room for error. Oloye would be our next pick, while Elusive Run can fight it out for minor honours.

Verdict

MAN ABOUT TOWN has met a couple of fair sorts in his last two, and should exit the maiden ranks today. PARISIAN GOLD challenged strongly last time, and rates the main danger. MAGNIFICENT SEVEN has a decent money chance on his latest. HE'S PRICELESS, FUJIN and BLACK PIMPINEL are worth considering if looking further.

Verdict

MAN ABOUT TOWN is probably the best recommendation but any trouble could put paid to his chance. Black Pimpinel is just about preferred for second, while Magnificent Seven looks third best.

Verdict

SUMMER MOON caught the eye running on late last time, and could prove too good. LOOKING AT STARS finished marginally in front of her there, but may struggle to repeat. INGABANGABONGA has done enough to score against these, as have KANISHIWA, AZINZA and UNICORN. CHICK WITH STICK and SECOND CHANCE are both trying the trip and could improve to feature in this weak field.

Verdict

LOOKING AT STARS is probably the best recommendation but hasn't much room for error. Summer Moon looks second best on balance, while Azinza shouldn't be ruled out.

Verdict

TSITSIKAMMA DANCE is a progressive youngster, and can make it three wins from five starts. Fellow 3yo APOLLO STAR gives the impression he is looking for ground, and if so has a winning chance. KAPEN PRIDE was third to a top sort last time, and has to be included. ONE DIRECTION and FRIENDLY TIBBS are never far off.

Verdict

ROYAL GINGER has been operating at a good level lately and looks the one they all have to beat. Apollo Star can come out best of the rest, while Tsitsikamma Dance might well have a say too.

Verdict

Once again expect the 3yo Fillies to dominate. ROSE IN BLOOM ran a great third in the Gr1 Majorca on Met Day, and any repeat will make her very tough to beat here. ELUSIVE HEART seems best this trip, and is the only filly to have (somehow) beaten Snowdance. MISS KATALIN is another who loves the course and distance. CAPTAIN'S FLAME and LOVE TO BOOGIE seem best of the older ones.

Verdict

ROSE IN BLOOM is quite clearly in front of these formwise and has a lot in her favour. Miss Katalin is fancied to chase the selection home, while Seattle Gold has a place chance as well.

Verdict

SUMMER SKY is highly consistent, and with such a low weight must go close here. On collateral form that brings PEROVSKIA into it as well, and they should be close together in the finish. WAITING FOR RAIN does well for Fourie, and is also well weighted. MILTON, OUR MATE ART, and MAMBO MIME make most appeal of the rest.

Verdict

SUMMER SKY just about looks the one to be with but he has little leeway if anything goes wrong. Perovskia seems the most likely to capitalise if the selection fails to deliver, while Macduff is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the field.
