Verdict

DESERT DOTTY's best form last year came on this surface, and in decent allowance company compared to today's level, so she is fancied to make a successful comeback. Penny Lynn got a run under her belt at Belterra and will step forward from it, and similar comments apply to Don't Cry Barbi.

Verdict

MARTHA'S MAFIA clearly knew her job on debut because she bounced straight into a lead and didn't see a rival over 6f at Belterra. The extra furlong shouldn't pose a problem and she can make it two from two, maybe at the chief expense of Tavrida. Joyous Evelyn finally got off the mark last time but steps up from 5f.

They won't have come up against a rival of the quality of JET MAJESTY, who has kept stakes company in New York and is a good addition to the Eddie Clouston team.

GOOD LUCK GUS drops from a route, which isn't ideal, but he is used to mixing it in much stronger company than this and if he can keep tabs on them early, he should prove too strong in the finish. Unbridled Ghost made a pleasing return to action and a heads a list of dangers that also includes Savethetangoforme.

STRONG AS AN OX made it fourth-time lucky over 7f at Charles Town, after which he was snapped up to join the Eddie Clouston barn. He led all the way so the drop in trip isn't a worry and he is preferred to Adorable Twirl, who made a pleasing return over 5f. Sterling Rebel shouldn't be too far away either.

Two runs after a break should have put Risky's Best and Brook's On Fire spot-on, whereas Rosie's Faith lacks a recent outing but is a player if near her best. PA'S LITTLE SISTER was found wanting on her return, but that came in a stronger claimer and she only needs to recapture her form from 2017 to take this.

Shakin Dice showed battling qualities which belied her inexperience to get off the mark at the first time of asking. She has joined Eddie Clouston during her subsequent break but that seven-month absence has to be a concern so the consistent LADY BEARONESS, with fitness on her side, gets the nod. K's Jordan is respected now she has a run under her belt.

Verdict

BULLZABOY rounded out 2017 with a good series of performances and picked up where he left off on his recent comeback, going close over course and distance. He holds Star Maneuver and Joe's Keeper on that evidence, and has more to fear from Harlan's Howling and El Discreto.
