Verdict

CIRCLE CAN WIN made a winning debut in a $40,000 stakes race back in September and, while she has disappointed in two subsequent starts, it is far too soon to be writing off the daughter of Gun Power. Incense and Tia Gego are others to make the shortlist.

Verdict

In a very weak race for the grade it is hard to oppose SARATOGA PRIME, who bolted up in a C&D maiden here last month. The main threats would appear to be Loyalty Spirit and Hillbilly Hula Gal.

Verdict

ZORRE kept on well in the closing stages when second over the extended 4f latest and could improve for this stiffer test. Both Shes A Gem and Classy Camelia have place claims if putting their best foot forward.
