Verdict

MILL HILL PLACE has finished a beaten favourite in all three career starts but there was enough promise in his recent runner-up effort to suggest he is worth another chance. The turf surface is an unknown for the selection whereas King Stormy has had two starts on the grass, albeit in more competitive company. This looks a realistic opportunity for the latter as well as the debutant Don't Sass Joe.

Verdict

Supporters of ONE FOR DON had their fingers burnt when he disappointed at this track last month, but he won three consecutive starts before that and deserves another chance. Leading danger Phil'sfirstfactum bids to get back on track and the oldest runner in the line-up, Moonlit Meteor, shouldn't be overlooked either.

He makes his first start for a new yard and shades the vote over recent runner-up Randy Sr, who got the better of On The Deadline (finished third) and Stormy Man Dan (finished fourth) earlier this month.

Verdict

Plenty of these have solid claims including LADY'S ISLAND, who got much closer when fourth on her second start and is backed to continue her improvement here. Last-start runner-up California Cotton looks a big danger after she was claimed for $16,000 and any market support behind the returning Sally O'Prado might be worth noting.

Verdict

This looks to revolve around CRIMSON HAYES after his narrow defeat earlier this month. Sabbatarian trailed the selection on that occasion but shouldn't be overlooked and it would also be dangerous to write off Flower Punch.
