Verdict

This looks a contest that might not take too much winning and Turn N Sign and Son Of A Bull have shown enough ability to be considered. However, it's worth taking a chance on a change of luck for TSUNAMI STRIKES. After a useful debut effort, he lost his rider next time when clipping heels and was going well latest when dropped to this grade only to be badly hampered. With a clear run, he can open his account.

Verdict

Verdict

This might not take too much winning and CABDRIVER AL'S recent efforts suggest he's the one to be on. Winner of a $17.3k allowance race here four starts ago, he's twice run well in tougher contests than this before a close second in this grade. He looks to have the measure of the consistent Case Notes and Risk Reward, a winner in this grade two starts ago.

Verdict

Pizza Johnny W has been knocking on the door in similar contests recently and looks to have the measure of City Chatter, who is flattered by his form figures. It's worth taking a chance, however, on PLACE OF SILENCE, easy winner of a $12.5k maiden claimer two starts ago and not disgraced in a much tougher race over six and a half furlongs here latest. With plenty to come after just three starts, he should have the measure of these rivals.

Verdict

Aseeninvogue is in top form at present and was an easy winner last time out in a slightly weaker contest. She can't be ruled out here but this should chiefly concern Beyond The Bay and BRAVO'S PRINCESS. Both won $16k claimers two starts ago but the latter is the more consistent and wins the vote tonight.

However, it's worth siding with SECRET TIME, who has finished second in his last five starts and can go one better tonight, dropped in class.

Valid Joke won a $25k maiden claimer over 7f here latest on just her second start and has claims while the consistent Snowy Elegance isn't out of her depth in this company and looks sure to be in the shake up but, barring accidents, this should go to WILDCAT SOL. She's won her last three starts over similar trips here and although this represents a step-up in class she still looks open to improvement after just ten runs.

Verdict

Dr Dan did enough on his debut here to come into the reckoning while Vanbird and Elector are progressive sorts with good claims. Preference, however, is for DIAMOND ROCK, who struggled in better company latest but has just been touched off in this grade on his previous two starts and should have too much class for these rivals.
