Verdict

CARMALITA has been threatening from day 1 and the stable is firing, however, there are many looking to lower her colours. GOLD DAWN has been runner-up in her last 2 but stable mates BACKLASH and WESTERN SHAMROCK shouldn't be far behind her. KINDAVAR could get into the action. KISSMEINMYDREAMS is running well and could feature. COUNT KOURNIKOVA can do better. Watch newcomers.

Verdict

CARMALITA stands out on form and should prove hard to beat here. Count Kournikova has more to offer and won't be far away leaving Gold Dawn and Pearl Of Bahrain to fight it out for third.

Verdict

TRIPOD was backed when just beaten on debut and will come on, however, he is coupled with newcomer VERDI who appears stable elect on riding arrangements - watch the betting! POWER OF PLACE and BOURBON BOUQUET were rested after a decent debuts and any support must be respected. COASTAL TORRENT needed his first run as a gelding. TEN-FOUR can earn and watch other debutante PATAT.

Verdict

TRIPOD frustrated those who made him favourite last time, but is worth giving another chance to leave that form behind. Coastal Torrent makes most appeal among the others, while Patat is prominent among those with minor place claims seeing a racecourse for the first time.

Verdict

CAPTAIN'S COMMAND is improving with racing and could get off the mark. THRONG showed expected improvement over the extra and could make up the 1 length deficit over the former. ARTAX has been costly to follow but could get his act together now a gelding. GREENWOOD DRIVE needed his first as a gelding and will come on. LESLIES PATHTOFAME has a shout if overcomes a wide draw.

Verdict

GREENWOOD DRIVE has an emphatic advantage on form and is well up to winning this. Artax looks to have most to offer of the rest, while Captain's Command comes into calculations for minor honours.

Verdict

Two runners, TIGERLACE and DIVA FAUSTINA deserve their maiden victories and hopefully one of them cracks it. The latter has the better draw. AWFAA wasn't disgraced when lacking support on debut and should come on heaps over the mile. NEW ZEALAND comes off a rest but shouldn't be far behind here. WILD LADY could find a place and watch newcomer BABE PALEY.

Verdict

TIGERLACE is just about the safest pick but any trouble could put paid to her chance. Babe Paley makes most appeal of the remainder on her debut, while Diva Faustina also needs a second look.

Verdict

Competitive. SPRING POETRY loved this trip and could follow up. EXCALIBUR'S RETURN is unbeaten over this distance and has a bright chance of completing a hat-trick. SABINA'S DYNASTY is holding form and shouldn't be far off. EMERALD BAY is another honest performer and could go in again. DALLEY drops in trip and with SEEKING GOLD and SAVETHEBESTFORLAST make up the short list.

Verdict

SAVETHEBESTFORLAST is in good heart right now and seems likely to take the beating. Dalley looks the likeliest to chase the selection home, while Seal My Fate is one to bear in mind too.

Verdict

Welcome to the French Connection. WINTER FORGE comes off break but if ready could prove her class. TAKINGTHEPEACE comes off a rest after proving herself. VARSITY GIRL beat FREDERICO'S DREAM but the latter could reverse it if aided by blinkers. TAMARINA won easily on debut and could be anything. WINTER WATCH, LONDON SECRET and NO MORE WORDS are not out of it.

Verdict

WINTER'S FORGE looks one with plenty of potential and seems likely to take the beating. Takingthepeace is chief among the dangers, while La Bella Mia is also an interesting runner.
