Verdict

WHITEHAVEN did well in both his starts and rates the one to beat on form. After a good debut MOJITO MAGIC went wrong but if problem free here should make a race of it. GUNSTON wasn't disgraced on debut and could get into the action. KELLOHOLM LAD disappointed after a decent debut and could take home a lesser cheque. Watch newcomers especially TAKATUL and MAROON BELLS.

Verdict

WHITEHAVEN failed to justify market support last time out, but looks the one to be on once again. Gunston is feared most, while Mojito Magic is another to take into acount.

Verdict

ULLA found support at long odds on debut and ran on smartly. She will come on heaps and confirm form with BRAVE ZNDAYA. CHOIR SINGER showed good improvement after a rest and could get into the picture. RIPTIDE needed her last run in KZN and should be thereabouts. Watch newcomer PERFECT TIGRESS.

Verdict

ULLA ran an encouraging race on debut and is likely to improve considerably. Choir Singer shouldn't be underestimated, while Riptide is perhaps the most interesting other runner in the line up.

Verdict

SILKEN PRINCE eased in the betting on debut but ran on nicely to take 2nd. He should know more about it. CARBON ATOM should enjoy the shorter trip again and should be thereabouts. EUREKA EFFECT will improve on a fair debut and must be respected. RANGOON and THE BOSBOK will both improve on their debut runs. Watch first-timer MELCHIZEDEK.

Verdict

SILKEN PRINCE is quite tough to fault and sets the bar, albeit not too high. Carbon Atom looks second best, while Ragoon commands respect as well.

Verdict

PACHANGA sports blinkers for the first-time. She is knocking and has enough pace to overcome a wide draw. She should hold SING AND DANCE and OCEANS PRIDE on recent form. BOURBON BOUQUET is bred for this and further and should do better. RATION MY PASSION and MWELASE are maturing but could need it. Watch first-timer ISOVAR.

Verdict

RATION MY PASSION looks marginally the pick of this bunch but has little room for error. Isovar is most likely the main danger having her first run, while Sing And Dance edges it so far as third place is concerned.

Verdict

CHARIOT GOLD wasn't disgraced in the Woolavington last time and should make a bold showing. INSIGNIS is on the up and should enjoy the extra. LADY VAL is another improving with racing and must be considered. She is coupled with EXCALIBUR'S RETURN who should be cherry ripe. TIGER LACE, COLD ASH and SPRING POETRY are not out of it.

Verdict

CHARIOT OF GOLD has a small margin for error. Cold Cash gets the vote for second, while Insignis can fight it out for minor honours.

Verdict

ALI BON DUBAI is honest and should give another grand performance. WALTER SMOOTHIE shouldn't finish far off but needs to relax in the early stages to turn it around. WHEEL OF TIME is getting stronger and should relish the longer distance. DROMEDARIS won his only try this course and distance. FORTUNE FELLA won last time and the form has been franked.

Verdict

WALTER SMOOTHIE formwise is a fair way in front of these and ought to win comfortably. Ali Bon Dubai is the most realistic second preference, while Dromedaris is another that could go well.

Verdict

ILHA DA VAR is in form and should be the one to beat from pole position. The entire field is looking to lower her colours. MADEMOISELLE has been been running close up but the draw is against her. Stable mate COLOMBINA won her maiden easily and could go on. MACADAMIA has disappointed recently but could find it here. AEROBATIC could get into the mix.

Verdict

COLOMBINA is running very well right now as her most recent effort showed and will take all the beating. Ilha Da Var could be the main threat, while Mademoiselle can make the first three as well.

Verdict

Mike De Kock has a strong hand here with his 3 runners; ROYAL CRUSADE has been running close behind in recent features and gets the nod of the trio; PUGET SOUND is returning to best; PUNTA CANA needed his sprint in his first run as a gelding and tries a mile now. GLIDER PILOT sports blinkers now and could improve. Filly LONDON SECRET showed a return to form last time.

Verdict

FULL MAST's recent efforts have been likeable in general and he is probably the one to beat. Glider Pilot is feared most, while London Secret edges it for third.

Verdict

SECRET CAPTAIN has proven costly to follow but deserves another chance. COUNT TASSILO wasn't disgraced last time and could get into the action. Stable companion JIKA is not out of it. BOLD COAST is back in form and should run another good race. KILLUA CASTLE can never be ignored for money. SOLDIER ON could need his first as a gelding.

Verdict

SECRET CAPTAIN has run several good races recently and just about sets the standard. Count Tassilo is top of the dangers, while Killua Castle has a place chance as well.

Verdict

POORMANSLADY only won her maiden last time but doesn't take on strong opposition and could follow up. INTHEPURPLERAIN is holding form and should be in the mix. SNOW PATH hasn't been far off recently but a wide draw could prove costly. GATEWAY TO HEAVEN comes off a rest but has a shout in this field. Others with chances.

Verdict

SNOW PATH has fewer question marks about her than the others but will need to avoid any trouble. Inthepurplerain could be the chief threat, while Il Mondo also merits respect.
