Verdict

YOU KNOW JUNEAU has not been sighted since running unplaced in an allowance contest in January 2016, but she is taking a steep drop in class this evening and is fancied to defy any ring-rust. Showmethetouch looks the danger based on her latest run, with Dontbetellinme put up as an each-way alternative to the principals.

Verdict

LUCKY MIKEY failed to reward favourite-backers when a bronze medallist at Charles Town last month but that effort gives him something to build on and he appeals as the likeliest winner in this claimer. The down-in-class Hippy Return is open to further improvement after just the two career starts and is taken for the forecast ahead of Purely Amazing.

Bear Hunter landed a third career success when last seen out at Turfway Park in February and is respected now bidding to follow up, while Totee may be of interest for each-way purposes if ready to go after his break. Preference, however, is for HONKEYTONK MAN, who is holding his form and seems almost guaranteed to run his race.

Verdict

Deputy Wanda has a consistent profile and should be thereabouts but she is still winless after 15 starts and MYSTIC JOY gets the vote. Edgar Paucar's mount has shown glimpses of ability and appears to have the scope to progress further after just four career starts. Ellenvale may be best of the rest.

CHANNEL BOY failed to fire when last seen out at Mahoning Valley in December but the Utopia gelding tends to give his running and is the tentative pick in a trappy finale. Cut To The Chase and The Prez look most likely of the remainder.
