Naut A Giver faded after running with promise on her introduction, while Bionda left behind a moderate initial effort to take second at Delaware. However, it may pay to give WIKI WOOD another chance because John Wames' youngster has gained experience in decent maiden special weight contests and will find this more to her liking.

Verdict

BRILLIANT WARRIOR's strike-rate isn't the best but he has made the frame on each of his last four appearances and can register a deserved success. Key To A Cure was ahead of Medallicious and Puget Sound when second here, but the latter improved past him next time and is the chief threat.

Verdict

Princess Rose is edging ever closer to the winner's enclosure, while Common Denominator arrives on the back of a career-best effort and should get her head in front before too long. It may pay to take a chance on LAUREL LANE because she has been competing at the big tracks in New York and will find this much more to her liking.

Verdict

The complexion of this race changes markedly if Ogeechee and No Tanx Blue Chip get runs but with that far from guaranteed, the vote goes to ENGLISH MAHAVEER, who beat Valentino's Day to the runner-up spot last time and can confirm his superiority. U. Tee is a player if recapturing his summer form.

Verdict

Ice Freeze and Mymartina are worth keeping an eye on on their Penn National debuts, but RUNTHISWAY has shown enough by making the frame on her last three outings - all over track and trip - to suggest that a race of this nature is well within her compass. Similar comments apply to Seaside Rendezvous and she is only reluctantly passed over.

Sneaky Cowgirl and Cat Giumarello are really consistent and will be ready to pounce if this comes too soon for the selection. Sobeit Sylvia and Wildcat Combat have to enter the reckoning as well.

Venomous State and Built That Way give Bruce Kravets a strong hand, although the latter has finished behind Steal The Brew more than once. FIFTY FLAGS didn't stay a mile last time and was out of his depth in an allowance contest before that, but his previous outing resulted in a determined victory over track and trip, and he is fancied to bounce back.

Verdict

Skylander Boy was a place and almost three lengths ahead of S W Run Laddie when runner-up on his return to sprinting but he may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind ARCHIVERO. The four-year-old has been running with credit at Gulfstream and, most recently Laurel, and won't have to raise his game too much to land this.
