Verdict

There were promising signs from HIDEOUS first time out and, with that run under his belt, he could take some catching, although the more experience Wouldn'titbenice and Comeonwillie are expected to give it a good go.

Verdict

A close second the last twice at Gulstream Park West, a repeat of either of those two performance should suffice for MY EASTERN BEAUTY in what looks an easier assignment. Aim For Glory was runner-up in a similar C&D event latest and is feared most, ahead of Guesswhosknocking.

Verdict

REGAL RETURN won well over C&D in January and he didn't run too badly when fourth over the same track and trip a few weeks later. Wonderful Breeze and Playing With Fire can complete the placings.
