Verdict

AND SHE SCORES sauntered clear to land a similar event to this on her penultimate start and looks worth another chance after finding the rise in grade too much when finishing fifth over an extended seven furlongs here last month. Aunt Gayle drops significantly in grade and isn't passed over lightly, with Ice Party capable of reaching the frame at bigger odds.

Verdict

Crescent Flyer and Theycalledhimbig both arrive after finishing a close second over similar trips here last time and are respected but slight preference is for HERMANO T K. The selection regained the winning thread with a fluent success over track and trip last month and he could have further improvement to come at this venue on only his second start here.

WELL'S GOLD takes a significant drop in grade and boasts enough back class to suggest he could prove difficult to beat now he is back in calmer waters. It's All Up To You had Culp's Hill behind in third when recording a determined success over track and trip last month and may prove the biggest danger to the selection.

Verdict

Harlans Warrior is an interesting newcomer who should be monitored for market support while Lady's Tribute has reached the frame on her last two outings and ought to be thereabouts. However, QUEEN J caught the eye on debut when finishing third over track and trip and any normal amount of improvement could make her difficult to beat.

JONAMIN posted a lacklustre effort when finishing adrift over an extended seven furlongs here last month but his penultimate second reads well in the context of this race and he looks worth another chance to shed the maiden tag. One Hitter and Carl's Glory both arrive on the back of posting solid efforts and look the pair to concentrate on for minor honours.

Verdict

TESSA'S TREAT sauntered clear to score by nearly three lengths over track and trip last month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Vadoma appeared to have plenty in hand when scoring over six furlongs here last month and may prove the biggest danger to the selection ahead of Pi and Best Bling.
