Verdict

PICKAWINNER and BUCKLEBERRY both won their Greyville Barrier Trials in emphatic fashion and the pair could fight it out. The former has had a run here where she was beaten by inexperience and she could have the edge. THE NEW GENERATION had excuses last time but is bred for a bit further. DRIVEN FORCE and ROMAN DANCER must be up there for prize money.

Verdict

PICKAWINNER is best of these by some way on form and tops the shortlist by some distance. Roman Dancer looks the best option for the forecast , while Buckleberry could also figure.

Verdict

VALEDICTORIAN is a three-year-old that has shown promise in the Western Cape. His stable notched up a Graded win recently and he could add to that here. But he is lightly raced. SWAKOPMUND is fast and must benefit from a 4kg claim especially after just needing it last time. NEALA is overdue her next career win - she did win her Trial last. WINTER BLUES can't be faulted.

Verdict

WINTER BLUES is up to taking this with a bit in hand and is the one to beat. Swakopmund is another that should go well.

Verdict

BOUNDLESS DEEP was gaining nicely at the end on his second start. He is getting the hang of things but switches to the turf. CHARGE D' AFFAIRES was beaten as favourite in is last two so is one to be wary off but the straight track could suit. TARGARYEN QUEEN caught the eye in her Trial but may just need her first try on the turf. GENEROUS LADY met a past winner of the July!

Verdict

PARADISE SONG has very good claims and is the one to beat. To Woo is a sound alternative, while Generous Lady is a solid place option.

Verdict

MITRA MUSIC relished the extra last time even though having plenty speed in her blood and goes even more here. She could be up to it. MISS CALYPSO and BEAT IT both ran in a Grade 1 last time and should enjoy the drop in class. MISS CALYPSO has a light weight and plum draw and could get away. LADY ABIGAIL had the measure of ADORABLE ANALIA who had issues. Both are runners.

Verdict

MISS CALYPSO is the one to beat judged on the form book and has obvious claims. Adorable Analia ought to be involved as well, while Lady Abigail may grab a bit of place money.

Verdict

SUCH A RUSH has run well over two different distances at this venue and is ready for the win. She has the best of the draw and a top rider up again. OAKDENE and ASIANA should be right there on the 'Pumpkin Queen' form line but the latter is not the most consistent around. OAKDENE met winners last and has drawn well so should be right there. I'M A VAR and MAMBO LYRIC can improve

Verdict

PINA COLADA has a very good chance on what she has achieved so far and looks to have a straightforward task. Asiana makes most appeal of the rest, while Mambo Lyric also looks good for a place.

Verdict

DOT COZA has run two good races in a row and would be deserving. But he runs after rest and has a wide draw to contend with. TARANAKI has been costly to follow but will have matured and can get it right. He has not drawn well either. FRANCOLIN is well bred and could be the one with big improvement to come. YOUNG GUN is better than his last run. More can improve.

Verdict

YOUNG GUN has a definite advantage on form and shouldn't be troubled too much. Mindmymooood gets the nod among the rest, while Did I Win is another likely to be on the premises.

Verdict

BENFONTEIN is honest and has done well in minimum trip events as he is bred for this kind of distance. He can score if enjoying the switch to turf today. MOON BIRD races for a stable that is in good form. He showed good potential earlier and could be a better sort after recent rest. TEXAS SKY is back to his best track and trip and should be right there. TOMMY GRAND is capable.

Verdict

GOLDEN PHEASANT is the one to beat judged on the form book. Texas Sky can also play a leading part.

Verdict

FLEEK caught the eye in her return to Scottsville. She had made big improvement on her previous run here and should build on that from a decent draw. SPIFFY finished ahead of FLEEK the time they met but bled. If she is fit and ready for the turf she can score. NIKIYA should spear head the youngsters as she has done little wrong and must get better with maturity.

Verdict

FLEEK's recent efforts have been likeable in general she and has fair claims. Spiffy is probably the biggest danger, while Tuulikki is another to take into acount.
