Verdict

The reliable OLD CENTRE upheld her consistent run of form when finishing third behind a subsequent winner in February. She shades the vote over Spot A Kiss, although the second-named mare does make plenty of appeal with blinkers a potential source of improvement. The local debutant Newly Fashioned looks the best of the rest.

Verdict

PHILLY PHANTOM has had plenty of bites at the cherry but recent placed efforts suggest he might ready to end his search for a first victory. The five-year-old concedes weight to some interesting younger opponents including Rock On Dude, who is dropped in class on his first start for an in-form stable. The latter might have more improvement to come, which could be also be the case for Dreams Of Huff.

Verdict

SPANISH CANDY has looked much improved since she was stepped up to tonight's trip and could be the one to plump for. Princess Ember was unlucky in running when she trailed the selection in fourth back in January, and Backsplash is another to consider.

Verdict

A competitive race where the consistent ZA WOODMAN shades the vote after he finished an encouraging second in February. Like the selection, Hudatbe is pretty solid and should run his race, while last-start winner Warren's T. Baze remains a player despite shouldering more weight than most of his rivals.

SARATOGA SWAG finished first past the post ahead of Patty's Mischief in February but their positions were subsequently reversed by the stewards. It will be interesting to see how they fare against one another tonight, but a recent breeze-up by Saratoga Swag swings the vote in her favour. Last-start winner Powder Road is also respected.

The finale can go the way of LINDA'S LUCK, who should appreciate a drop back in trip and might be sharpened up by the refitting of blinkers. He's Taken is an interesting contender on his first start for the in-form Elliot Sullivan yard, and the recently placed Capiche is also respected.
