Verdict

The first on the nine race card appears to be a two horse race, AL'S BELLS was fancied on debut however proved slow finishing 5th. Improvement will be made, at level weights (60kg) and a No 4 draw could be the one to beat. RED ENCHANTMENT impressed on debut when beaten 1.25 lengths into 2nd, she'll improve heaps here. As far as the minor money placings are concerned, wide open!

Verdict

RED ENCHANTMENT has scope to do better and is much the one to aim at. Al's Bells is most likely the toughest opposition, while Tweed Valley has place prospects as well.

Verdict

This could get super competitive as a number of runners promise to have tons of scope. BOBBY'S EXPRESS could be the right pick, his best runs to date have come at the course, with a light weight and a cosy draw could earn a win. FILIPPO faced traffic problems last time, the drop back in trip should prove healthy. NOBLE DUKE can earn. Keep an eye on the betting for the newbies.

Verdict

FILIPPO is fairly hard to fault and should give it a good go. Bobby's Express looks the best bet for the runner-up spot, while Sacred Flame is another with a place chance first time up.

Verdict

This could be another Marcus V Delpech encounter. Delpech rides ROCK MY SOUL who returns from a rest and has been gelded. The KZN surface should suit, if fit should edge out this field. Marcus is aboard COOL AT HEART who improved last time out and can only get better. Minor money placings could get tricky, keep an eagles eye on the betting for the many newcomers carded here.

Verdict

COOL AT HEART just about gets the nod in this company and should make a bold show. Rock My Soul is the pick of the the others, while Gilts is another with the potential to figure.

Verdict

Interesting opener to the Pick 6. POMONA returns from a 108 days rest, if fit should be more than capable of earning a maiden win. LATERS BABY improved last time out, if fit should make a bold bid. It's hard to believe ultra-consistent UPRISE hasn't won a race yet, she's never far off so warrants respect. FONTEYN shouldn't be far back while PINA COLADA runs best races at course

Verdict

HIGH ALTAR couldn't win when favourite last time out, but gets the nod again. Uprise should chase the selection home, while Pomona also needs a second look.

Verdict

Wide open. UNDER THE ROSE has been runner up over last two outings, she's scheduled to run on the 18th, if takes part here could be the right one to back. VICTORY CROSS tries hard and is never far off past the post, her consistency will soon be rewarded. If fit following a rest, AMADORA could be the joker in the pack. QUEENS CHAPEL will be running on strongly and can earn here.

Verdict

QUEENS CHAPEL's recent efforts have been likeable in general and she is the one they all have to beat. Under The Rose is preferred for the forecast , while Victory Cross is another to take into acount.

Verdict

CAPTAIN AT SEA gave a good account of himself when 5th behind Al Sahem in the SA Derby - he returns to his favoured course and should be the right fella to back. LIQUID RAINBOW is in pursuit of a hat-trick of wins, he's on the up, respect. LEE'S PICK deserves every chance with Marcus up. ENBHARR, CHROME BLUE, and EVER DEAR should not be ignored and on form warrant inclusion.

Verdict

CRIME VICTIM has marginally the best all-round profile but hasn't much room for error. Lee's Pick seems the primary threat, while Captain At Sea is a solid place option.

Verdict

PARTY CRASHER's last three runs consist of decent performances in features.She drops a bit in class and could record a third career victory. PREMIER DANCE although returning from a lengthy rest has produced glimpses of talent, go close. INTO THE GROOVE and JAY JAY'S GIRL shouldn't be far off the leaders. EINA has finished 2nd over her last three runs - 3rd time lucky perhaps?

Verdict

PARTY CRASHER holds a sizeable advantage on form and will take all the beating. Premier Dance is just about preferred for second, while Jay Jay's Girl comes into calculations for third place.

Verdict

NOTHERN CHORUS will have a wide draw to contend with but she needed her last outing and should be in fine fettle now, she'll go close. OSPREY may have needed her last run, from a top draw could pose the main threat. HOT TODDY, RUSSET ROSES, ANDERMATT, CELESTIAL GOLD and ART ATTACK could all pop up past the post which could make for a crowded affair come the finish line.

Verdict

MOGOSTAR is running well enough to take this but has little leeway if anything goes wrong. Andermatt might be the answer to second place , while Art Attack has place prospects as well.

Verdict

For the closer fitness could play a major role as a host of runners return from rests. LIL RED ROOSTER doesn't know how to run a bad race, with Warren Kennedy in great form could steal the show. LLOYD'S LEGACY has been heavily backed since day 1, respect. CATHEDRAL COUNTY is in pursuit of a third straight win. Almost every runner in this race has a valid shout for a win.

Verdict

LIL RED ROOSTER turned in a career best effort last time out and is arguably the one they have to beat. Cathedral County is the rational second option, while All True Man enters calculations for third place.
