A competitive opener where the dropped-in-grade BRIANA JEAN shades the vote after she finished a one-length runner-up in February. Aparri and Four Times Lucky were closely matched when first and second (in that order) last month and look the biggest dangers.

Verdict

None of these runners are particularly convincing but PEETA ran well on her penultimate start and didn't have a clear run when last sighted. She deserves another chance but a similar case can also be made for Antares Dream and Lord Calezaar who are both better than their recent form figures suggest.

Verdict

SNEAKY MEEK ran an excellent race in defeat when second on his first start following a gelding operation and is backed to go one better tonight. Top Rocket trailed the selection when third on that occasion but might do better in first-time blinkers and the lightly-raced Caustic also looks a big player.

Verdict

The finale looks fairly open and a chance is taken on the newcomer JAYA HO after she clocked a solid time in a four furlong breeze-up last Friday. The selection must concede experience to the likes of Star At The Bar, who might have more to offer for new connections, and Bourbon Time, who had excuses when fifth at this track recently.
