Max The Kitty has the form to be competitive once more, but he was behind GRAVEL in a similar race over track and trip latest and Rigoberto Velasquez's gelding is taken to confirm those placings here. Mario Karty was back in fifth in that race, but as it was only his third start he may well improve enough to challenge.

Verdict

DELINEATOR EXPRESS might not have the most pleasing form figures, but he's been competitive in decent stakes races and could be the answer here. Maddie's Gold has a couple of low-grade wins to his name but will need to step up in this, as will Barb's Boo, who chased home Maddie's Gold last time.

Rox The Fox could be better if the track rides better than it has on his last two outings, while Laney's Gold seems to find all going comes alike so he is respected. Preference is for HELLO SON, though, as he flew home to score last time and could get the pace to aim at that he needs.

Verdict

It will take a Herculean effort from one of her rivals to stop FURIOUS FIRE adding to her recent winning spree, as she fended off all challenges to win a stakes race last time and is evidently on great terms with herself. Staracrossthewater had Gofargogo well behind when opening her account last time and could be the biggest danger.

Aphiemi has claims on the pick of her form, while Dollys Chestnut was behind Aphiemi last time but won really impressively on her previous outing. It might be worth forgiving ARTIE'S ECHO her latest defeat as her previous battling success showed her in a really good light.
