Verdict

PAM'S JOY sauntered clear to score by nearly five lengths over track and trip last month and is difficult to oppose on that evidence. B K Miss bounced back to form to finish second last time and has claims if building on that effort here, while Kitsi invariably runs her race in this grade and completes the shortlist.

Verdict

CHEESE displayed an electric turn of foot to land the spoils over track and trip earlier this month and rates a solid selection to land a quick double. Adriatic Skye has finished no worse than second on her last four starts and isn't passed over lightly, with Swiss Peak looking best of the rest after her latest second over a trip short of her best.

Verdict

Shady Love takes the eye on breeding and any market support would be interesting, but GRACIAS TOM has displayed a fair level of form in his four starts to date and can put that experience to good use here. Look No Further was narrowly behind the selection last time and looks best of the rest.

Verdict

PERFECT GENIUS bounced back to form to finish third in a stronger race than this last time and a repeat effort may suffice. Ferocious disappointed when last seen but has claims on his penultimate success, while Sunrise Legacy has finished runner-up on his last three outings and ought to be thereabouts once again.
