Verdict

RUNBRORUN numbered Cowtownmary among his victims on his way to completing a hat-trick and although he could only manage third on his latest appearance, he is fancied to bounce back. The dropped-in-class Guy Code could keep him company on the pace, and Stoneys Mr Cruiser is another who will relish have his sights lowered.

Baytown Juliet is steadily getting her act together, with Turing Machine the pick of the newcomers.

Sally Simpson is holding her form well and won't mind the drop from 7f.

They don't set the bar too high, though, so the vote goes to the newcomer BLESS THE CAUSE, who has shown glimpses of ability in the mornings.

Verdict

CLIFTON BEACH actually managed to get his head in front at Del Mar, only to be demoted to second. He has since kept up his solid level of form with another second here and deserves to break his duck officially. Sixes is fancied to show more for a drop in class, while Royal Seeker has been gelded during his time off and is another potential improver.

Cammy's Music and Mizter Kool Cat would make much more appeal if this was a sprint, and Giro Candito also seems better at shorter trips. Dream Police shouldn't be too far away but REAL BIG DEAL has had his measure the last twice and the five-year-old is fancied to transfer his good recent Del Mar form to regain the winning thread here.

AVANTI BELLO took a step back in the right direction when beating Lucky J Lane to the runner-up spot at Del Mar and if he recaptures his form from the start of the year, he will take some stopping. Lucky J Lane has since struggled in stakes company, but Infobedad was fourth in a Grade Three when last seen, faring much better than Giant Influence.

Verdict

OF NOTE had Oh Scatty Oh a long way behind her in third when runner-up at Del Mar and again hit the crossbar at this venue most recently. She has also had Amaranta, Curlina Curlina, Riverka and Colonel Peggy Sue well in arrears during those two runs. Wicked Old Fashion beat Pretty Expensive to second two starts ago and is perhaps the chief threat.
