Verdict

Uncaged paid his way last year with three victories, often in slightly stronger company than this, but he hasn't been seen since October, whereas MARCHWOOD bounced back to form here just under two weeks ago and that gets him the nod. Jiggin Witit regained the winning thread recently but faces a tougher task against the boys.

Verdict

LOVE ON TIDES returned in a $72k allowance contest at Keeneland and was unsurprisingly found wanting. This is a more suitable test of her abilities, however, and she can bounce back. Lady Oak has to be a suspect stayer so perhaps the chief threat comes in the form of last-start all-the-way winner Odachi. Queen's Gate is respected too.

Verdict

The Babe has shown excellent resolution to win her two starts in 2017 and is likely to give her all again in the hat-trick bid. Looks Like Sis is another on a three-timer, while My Juliana made a successful comeback but must prove her stamina. MEOW hasn't been seen so far this year but shaped like a promising filly during her last campaign, and there is the promise of much more to come.

Verdict

Bladerunner and Marmalade both made every post a winning one on their latest outings here and there is a chance they will cut each other's throats, with Feet's Afire, who made a such a good return to action, also preferring to get on with things. GATEWAY ARCH enjoyed an excellent end to 2016 and start to 2017 and although he has been absent since January, he may be the one to pick up the pieces.

Verdict

ORZO returned with a narrow victory at Tampa and has since acquitted herself reasonably well in deeper waters twice. She should be able to stamp her authority at this level, possibly at the chief expense of Senorita Sparkplug, who doesn't know how to run a bad race. Pegasus Kitten got up late in the day on her first start at this venue but will find this more competitive.

Verdict

Liam's Prince blew away the cobwebs after a year off with an encouraging third here, with Inclined To Dance the best part of five lengths adrift. He is entitled to come on from that but lacks the scope of TWICKENHAM, who progressed between his first couple of starts and a similar level of improvement again could see him home in front.

Verdict

Man About Town does all of his racing here and made a promising return to action last month. He holds Samurai Zip on that evidence but might have to settle for a supporting role behind THE COOKIE MAN, who has contested a couple of stakes contests and this is probably the easiest task he has faced for a while.
