Verdict

MAXIMUS C improved significantly from his debut run to finish second over track and trip earlier this month and he could prove difficult to beat on that evidence. Kool Kat is improving with experience and may prove the biggest danger ahead of the more exposed pair of No Deal and Racin Blue Jean.

Verdict

TAYLOREALSWIFT was first past the post before being disqualified for failing to keep a straight line over an extended seven furlongs here last month and she could prove difficult to beat if plotting a clearer passage. Turn A Deaf Ear takes the eye on breeding and should be monitored for market support, with Dianka looking the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

AIKMAN JEWEL has finished no worse than third on her last four outings and it will be disappointing if she fails to make the most of what appears a simple opportunity to regain the winning thread. Itsherprerogative looks the biggest danger after finishing runner-up on her last two starts, with Banana Cream Pie the pick of the bigger priced runners.

Verdict

TOCCET'S CHARM failed to fire last time but his penultimate second over an extended mile here came in a stronger race and he could prove difficult to beat back in calmer waters. Carlsbad Mountain bounced back to form to finish third over track and trip last month and he isn't passed over lightly, with Wally's Got Class also respected.

Verdict

PUBLIC POLICY has proved a model of consistency, finishing no worse than second on his last six starts, and lost nothing in defeat when finishing a neck second over a shorter trip here earlier this month. This longer trip is expected to pose few problems and he can see off the attentions of My Majesty and Lode The Gold.

Verdict

MYSTERIOUS PROMISE sauntered clear to score by nearly five lengths over five furlongs here last month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance. Cold Snack Thirty is capable in this grade and may prove the biggest danger to the selection ahead of the inconsistent Merlot Brando.
