Verdict

Pool Party is respected now eased in grade and warrants consideration along with the reliable Caymus Girl, but preferred ahead of both is newcomer PERMANENT VACATION, who fetched $50k at the sales last year and has clocked some pleasing times during her workouts. A market check should prove useful in assessing the confidence behind her chances.

Verdict

BURNING CALORIES was far from disgraced when raised in grade here last time and, although held in fourth, is expected to build upon that effort now reverting back to this lower level. Last-time-out C&D winner Oh Mandie looks the main danger ahead of Behold A Lady, who now steps up in grade on the back of her latest course victory.

Verdict

DANCE WITH BULL arrives in good order and looked in need of this longer trip when staying on into third over the extended 5f here last month. Magical Dreamer is feared most now dropped in trip, with a chance also given to newcomer Deputy Dillon, who should be monitored in the betting ahead of his racecourse bow.

MY ITALIAN EX won in fine style over 5 1/2f at Penn National latest and, already proven at this longer distance, he will be fancied to strike again. Other last-time-out winner Jersey Storm Cat looks an obvious danger, while Harbor Kid certainly isn't out of it either.

A moderate looking heat in which KEITH'S ROSE has strong claims. She must play a leading role if in the same mood as when runner-up over this track and trip last time, while Brush Creek Honey and Soul Food are others worthy of consideration.
