Misty Slew should go well having mixed in better company but this looks a good chance for SOPHIA DEL SOL to go one better than her two silver medal to date, with improvement expected. Artistic Ministry has her sights lowered after her debut effort.

Verdict

BROADWAY NIKA was only held by a neck when third in a sprint here latest and, a five-time winner over this longer trip, he rates the one to beat today. Freddies Dream has been running well in defeat and is a big threat, likewise South Texas Lingo if new connections get him back on song.

North County Guy has been moving well in the mornings and a big debut run could be on the cards for a top yard, but preference is for the experience of TIME FOR CIOPPINO following a good third over C&D when a gelding operation looked to spark some improvement.

Verdict

D D's Lute sets the form standard but not an insurmountable one and it could pay to side with one of the interesting newcomers. Cowboytakemeaway and Gracious Me fall into that category but preference is for RAISING AIDA, who has been working well for a yard in flying form at present.
