Verdict

Rebeccas In Charge is possibly the best horse in the line-up but she is more effective as a sprinter so is passed over in favour of GLAMSQUAD. Jonathan Wong's seven-year-old slammed Esperanza's Mobile by six lengths at Oak Tree and is taken to repeat the dose.

Verdict

After putting the pace to the race, SO HERES THE THING only gave way late on over this distance at Oak Tree, but that came in a stronger heat so she may be able to get to the front and stay there now. Khalaya was disappointing last time but it wouldn't be the biggest surprise if she bounced back, with Aye Aye Oh another to consider.

Verdict

Hero For Hire arrives at the top of her game and will give her new trainer a bold sight, but I'M NOT FANCY has kept much stronger company than this at Golden Gate and, most recently, Oak Tree, and can capitalise on having her sights lowered. Bunny Boo and Marriott Fashion don't have many miles on the clock so can't be dismissed lightly.

Verdict

Cats Surfin and El Chavo Del Ocho would be players if their fitness could be guaranteed, whereas Union Rebel got a run under his belt with an encouraging Oak Tree second following almost a year off the track. Even so, the safest option is MAJOR IMPLICATIONS, who pipped Dancing Harbor to the runner-up spot at Oak Tree and appears poised to strike.

He's A Tiger faded close home last time but is a threat if allowed an easy lead.

Verdict

She's Over The Top displayed marked improvement to fill the runner-up spot at Oak Tree, while Lucky Outcome will find this easier than the Santa Anita heats she has contested. The bar isn't set too high, though, so perhaps it is worth chancing newcomer CHECK SIX, who is a full-sister to a successful sprinter.
