Verdict

Timothy Shea has claimed OWIN back after a couple of placed efforts for Carlos Rodriguez and the handler will be out to make it 15th time lucky here. Joint Strike is improving and merits respect, along with Samedi Night, who is better than he showed last time.

Both Baby I'm Blue and Royal Six Shooter have strong claims on their best form but both are returning from spells on the sidelines. That lack of a recent race may play into the hands of EXCLUSIVE SYMPHONY, who kept on well for second last time and could go one better.

If the good version of Whatabeautifulmess turns up then she has claims, but that is far from certain. A good performance from Exclusive Symphony in the preceding race would boost the form of Anna Regina's win, but preference is for MIDNIGHT RODEO, who battled hard to score last time and a repeat of that effort could suffice.

Verdict

AMI'S EXCHANGE has looked a different animal since switching to this track, placing on all three starts here, and had Sancho Del Pueblo and C. Victor well adrift when second last time. He is taken to go one better here, with class droppers Full Sum Prison and Jericho Jet the potential flies in the ointment.

Verdict

Scrap Iron Phil was beaten less than a length into third last time, with Rick's Boy just over a length behind him in fifth. The former may confirm that form, but might find UNION RIVER too hot to handle, as he's been competitive in much hotter races than this in the not-too-distant past.

Verdict

Swiss Rosalee has been in decent form of late, but has yet to find a way to get the better of SHESGOTTHEMOVES this year and Paulina Sinnefia's consistent mare is taken to confirm her superiority here. Even Bette heads a number of horses with claims on their return from layoffs.
