Verdict

Lands Down Street eases in grade and has to be feared, while On Her Honor would be dangerous if allowed to dictate matters in this small field and is respected. However, CHESAPEAKE SPRING returned to form when lowered to this level by finishing third over an extended six furlongs here last month and her stamina looks worth chancing.

Skitzinthemidnight has proven consistency personified in recent times and she hinted her turn was near when third over an extended six furlongs here latest.

However, SPA ANGEL highlighted her resolution to record a determined success over a similar trip at Finger Lakes last time and could have more to offer with her confidence boosted.

Verdict

NUCLEAR CODE ran a promising debut race to finish runner-up over six furlongs at Penn National and normal amount of improvement would make him difficult to beat. Nims is improving with experience and ran on into fourth when last seen, but his absence of nearly a year is a concern and Chuckles Candy may prove the biggest danger after his latest second over six furlongs here last month.

He is handed a confident vote to maintain his progression, with Here's Paco preferred to Dahog for minor honours.

Verdict

LACEE sauntered clear to score by nearly seven lengths over an extended mile here last month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Naut A Giver finished a neck second when runner up here last time and looks the pick for minor honours, ahead of Pandora's Jul, who finished third behind that rival last time.
