Verdict

Godlovesasinner was just ahead of GLAM SLAM when second over 5 1/2f here but they have gone in different directions since, with the latter looking far more progressive when going under by the narrowest of margins over the same track and trip. Popizar has been keeping decent company at Parx and is worth some thought at this level.

Verdict

Sky Chaparral and Classic Wildcat are in really good form but they haven't been tackling opponents of the calibre of THE GREAT PROVIDER, who made every post a winning one on turf last time but is just as adept on an artificial surface. Attempt To Dream is a force to be reckoned with providing he isn't ring-rusty.

Verdict

The progressive JAG did his best work at the finish to occupy the runner-up berth over 5 1/2f so it is safe to assume even better is forthcoming now he goes further. He is preferred to Maynooth, who flopped on his only previous appearance at a trip in excess of 6f. Old Time Revival, Treetop Flyer and Cash Exchange add spice to a trappy affair.

Princess Tiznow has found her level now, with a Timonium win sandwiched by two seconds at Penn, and Stormin Margaret and Blue Hen Madness also arrive in fine fettle. HAVE HOPE hasn't been as much of a force of late but she has been competing in decent allowance races and could bounce back now her sights are lowered.

Verdict

After running away with a 7f event here, GIMME KIMMY made the frame in a $50k contest before being forced to race wide in a decent allowance event. She can bounce back, possibly at the chief expense of Next Street, who was placed behind Scarlett's Ransom and Mathildestrevenue after beating them over 5 1/2f.

For the second race in succession, TIGER EYES forced Lemon Lover to settle for the runner-up spot as she completed a five-timer, and she then performed even better to take second in a $42k allowance event. She can regain the winning thread, with Lemon Lover in contention for minor honours again, along with Exclusive Symphony, who rattled off a hat-trick at Penn.

Verdict

TEQUILA HERO failed to fire at Finger Lakes latest but he had been in great form at that venue previously so it is worth chancing that he bounces back. Sam Sparkle's latest second here was a step back in the right direction, with Liberal Spin and Banner Bill others to consider.
