Verdict

Not a strong heat by any means and BONITA RAPIDS should prove difficult to beat dropped in class for her return. Stolen Dream has claims on her best form but wouldn't be the most reliable, while Chick's Wildcat might be worth a market check ahead of her introduction.

Verdict

DOMINO JOHNSON will arrive full of confidence after regaining the winning thread over 1m here last time and, with this extra yardage not a concern, he might be able to complete the double. Positive Outcome and Minister Vivendi, closely matched on their recent clash, are feared most.

Verdict

Cause For Pardon warrants respect following his runner-up finish over 7 1/2f here but slight preference is for the fourth that day, CLAIM A KISS. Dan Morgan's charge should have learnt plenty from that initial spin and can go close if ridden with more restraint. Dust Roller also has a squeak.

CYOULATERALLIGATOR has been knocking on the door and this looks a great opportunity for him to double his tally of career wins. Problem Solved and the dropped-in-class Ready For Luck are other respected players.
