Verdict

ACKER had a few of today's rivals in arrears when running third at Del Mar in November and Richard Mandella's colt can strike at the sixth time of asking. Rak City showed promise over 6f on debut and looks a danger now upped to a mile while Warren's Fandango also has claims.

Verdict

Bold Papa has already passed the post in first place but he was subsequently disqualified and placed fifth; Richard Baltas' charge is a consistent sort at this level but is still winless after twelve starts and ATONARUN is the suggestion. The selection showed promise on his debut over track and trip and could represent some value if progressing from that outing. Dial Me In Looks best of the rest.

Verdict

Estrechada is eased in grade after some good efforts in pattern race company and is respected, while Evo Campo, another with her sights lowered, also makes it on to the shortlist. Preference, however, is for HOW UNUSUAL, seeking a hat-trick after obliging in a Grade 3 at Del Mar latest and clearly in good heart.
