Verdict

MADJESTIC and Ru Mystified made encouraging introductions when second and third respectively over this trip at Oak Tree and the form is expected to be confirmed, with Terri Eaton's charge taken to break through. They should have this between them because Desert Dew, Wma Atlantic, Svr Spitfire and Wma Rexella were all in behind last time, and the newcomer My Conns Kougar will be better for the outing.

Verdict

PAPA JERRY'S GIRL was a position and more than 10 lengths in front of Rosie's Gold when third on her racecourse debut at Oak Tree, with the field strung out. Jack Steiner's youngster should derive plenty of benefit from that experience and can make it second-time lucky. Blue Diva is possibly the pick of the newcomers.

Verdict

Accelerato beat Virghazi to the runner-up berth at Oak Tree but might have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind CASH LIMIT, who is used to competing in much stronger company and a chance is taken that his stamina lasts out. Lighthouse Boogie also has his sights lowered but may be more effective on grass.

Verdict

ON THE KEY fared better than Anythingscookin and Pulpits Power when fourth in a slightly stronger claimer at Golden Gate, and that is probably the best recent form on offer. Anythingscookin should be snapping at his heels again, though, and Aotearoa and Storm Fashion also have to enter the equation.

Verdict

Art Of Gold will be fitter for her recent comeback, but HOT N BREEZY has offered encouragement in more competitive events than this one and appeared to stay a route trip when fourth last time.

Verdict

JOHN PAUL'S BET doesn't know how to run a bad race and after numbering Saint Adalbert and Drink Til You Drop among his victims on his way to completing a Golden Gate hat-trick, he has performed to an even higher level twice in defeat. Papa G will find this easier than the Santa Anita claimer he contested most recently, and could be the primary threat.

Verdict

DIZZY DANCER struggled at Oak Tree but had previously hit the crossbar on three successive occasions, beating Rainbow North twice, and he also had the measure of Lucky Shoes To Win during that period. He is preferred to Lucky Views, who almost backed up a Golden Gate win at Oak Tree, and Mr. Jay D.
