Verdict

Nice up and coming youngsters look sure to fight it out. THANKSGIVING was green and hanging but comfortable to the end of his Barrier Trial. He could be a nice sort in the making. Stable mate ROCKET FIRE caught the eye at Greyville and has to make the switch to turf. FRANCISCO is still learning but has had a proper race and could be hard to fight off. More with claims.

Verdict

THANKSGIVING holds an appreciable advantage on form and jumps off the page as the obvious winner. The Grey Crusader may be the one for second, while Francisco could also figure.

Verdict

O SOLE MIO was a short head behind Calvary who came out to win a nice race at this venue recently. She is speedy and obviously talented and could prefer the switch to the turf track. LA BELLA also showed in a Trial and Anton Marcus takes the ride here-could be ready today. LA VALETTE shows good pace and should be right there again. BON MAMAN was not disgraced in her Trial.

Verdict

O SOLE MIO is well in front of these formwise and is well up to winning this readily. La Valette may be the best bet to follow the selection home, while La Bella can fight it out for minor honours.

Verdict

WHITE LIGHTNING flew up to finish second and if he had had a better draw could have won that last start. He should go the longer trip and rates the one to beat. AT THE OPERA has some stamina in his pedigree and should build on his improved run when trying 1400 metres. DUKE OF SPIN was green round the turn here and the well bred sort must improve. SMALL TOWN DUDE has a say.

Verdict

WHITE LIGHTNING just about gets the nod in this company and seems the one they have to beat. At The Opera is another who could have a big say in proceedings, while Red Hot Night comes into calculations for minor honours.

Verdict

SIMPLY SCRUMPTIOUS can boast three close up finishes in mixed company and would be fully deserving. She has a 4kg claiming apprentice who should boost her chances. SATARA also has the same claim and the youngster who finished second in her last two could go one better. DUNZIE had a look in last time and can upset in this. MIZIARA and MEET THE LOGANS have potential.

Verdict

DUNZIE has been hard to fault in recent outings and could be difficult to catch. Satara is fancied to chase the selection home, while Simply Scrumptious also demands consideration.

Verdict

MACDUFF enjoyed the 1200 metre sprint and can follow up especially with a 2,5kg claiming apprentice sure to assist his chances. TRIBAL FUSION carries top weight as a result and is racing after rest. But he is a decent sort himself and must be respected. MONTE CHRISTO showed up nicely in Barrier Trials and off his current merit rating should prove dangerous.

Verdict

MONTE CHRISTO took a huge step back in the right direction again last time and looks the one they all have to beat. Macduff should be thereabouts come the business end, while Archilles also commands a second look.

Verdict

NEW FORT didn't give in in what was a cracker race on 'Super Saturday'. He has won here as well and from draw one should be hard to peg back. IMPACT ZONE loves this track and trip and won a gutsy race last time. He can follow up. THE MONEY MAN is weighted to beat IMPACT ZONE and must be respected. GREAT RUMPUS and AFORAWAY have earning potential.

Verdict

LOS BARBADOS wasn't long out of form and has leading claims. The Money Man might be the answer to second place, while Haddington also requires respect.

Verdict

WARFARER gave his rivals a galloping lesson with a big weight last time and could do so again. MORNING CATCH is lightly raced and has scope for improvement. He could be better over this distance. VERDIER has a chance of catching WARFARER at the weights. He is as honest as they come but needs to find a little more for the win. Others have money chances.

Verdict

MORNING CATCH is holding his form well and has fair claims. Warfarer is probably the chief danger, while Rio De La Plata also requires a closer look.

Verdict

Open race to end. GRECIAN LAUREL won her sprint convincingly even though bred for ground. She tries more here and is up in class but could be up for it. KARATAGE is back over her best trip and could go all the way. CAUSE AND EFFECT and MARSALA have good sprint form but not the best of draws today. STAR EVOLUTION, GIRL IN GOLD and GIMME A BREAK NATE could be in the fight.

Verdict

MARSALA's recent efforts have been likeable in general and she should give backers a decent run for their money. Cause And Effect has the best credentials of the rest, while Girl In Gold can't be ruled out.
