Verdict

The fancied runners are all drawn wide out and luck in running could be the decider. GAME THEORY finished 3rd in both starts and the form has been franked. BLACK SAIL was heavily backed on debut in his new surroundings but disappointed. He tries a sprint now. ENTER THE DRAGON wasn't disgraced last time but drops in trip. CRASSUS could place. Watch newcomer VARSITY BOURBON.

Verdict

BLACK SAIL was a bit disappointing when favourite last time out, but looks worth trusting again. Game Theory is feared most, while Varsity Bourbon also demands a second look seeing a racecourse for the first time.

Verdict

TIDAL TUSSLE is battling to open her account but if first-timers SUMMER AFTERNOON and VERITAS aren't strongly fancied could do it here. TARGARYEN QUEEN hasn't been far off to date and needed her last outing. RHYME OR REASON drops down to 1200m but with blinkers on could be sharper. MISS SAMURAI can improve on debut.

Verdict

VERITAS is the percentage call first time up in a weak race. Summer Afternoon is the other interesting newcomer, while Tidal Tussle commands respect as well.

Verdict

Weight could prove the key. ODD ROB is holding form and after 3 seconds in a row could go one better, however, he gives 7,5kg to MIGHTY AND MAGIC who should be at peak fitness. On this line of form TAPENZEE with a 4kg claims carries a postage stamp and comes right into it. FORTUNE FELLA is best this course and distance and must be respected. ROYAL HONOUR is not out of it.

Verdict

ROYAL HONOUR looks to have narrowly the best claims but will need to be firing on all cylinders. Odd Rob likely poses the biggest threat ahead of Fortune Fella.

Verdict

Gary Alexander holds all the aces with RATION MY PASSION, ELUSIVE MOON and CHARITY QUEEN. RATION MY PASSION seems to have most scope for improvement and gets the nod. BUILDING BRIDGES found problems in her last start which must be ignored. She will stay the distance. KISS AN ANGEL should have no problem with the trip and must be considered.

Verdict

KISS AN ANGEL was a fine second here last time and could be set to open her account now. Ration My Passion is the danger.

Verdict

All 9 warrant consideration on collateral form. NOCEUR never runs a dull race and should give another honest performance. CHARIOT OF GOLD and SUNSHINE SILK have ability but may not be at peak fitness. On form BRAXTON, PENNY FROM HEAVEN and GOTTALOTTALUV should get close together. PRETTY BALLERINA won well last time. PEARL OF BAHRAIN and ANIMAL LOVER should finish close.

Verdict

SUNSHINE SILK is a fair way in front of these formwise and can resume winning ways. Animal Lover could emerge as the main danger, while Pretty Ballerina has a good shout of a share of the minor money.

Verdict

ORPHEUS needed his first run as a gelding and should come on heaps. THE RISING LEGEND should now prefer further but will be coming late. SHOGUN loved this track and trip and could double up. HELIOS is maturing and could get into the money fresh. Top weight KILRAIN should be cherry-ripe. The remaining 5 runners are all capable on their day.

Verdict

ORPHEUS returned with a good run over C&D and he's probably the one to beat. Mambo Symphony and Shogun are feared most.

Verdict

BOCKSCAR is carded as a reserve runner before this. If he takes his place should go close. Top weight SNOW IN SEATTLE is useful and if ready after a rest could give him a go. Stable mate DARKEST HOUR finds problems but if puts it in could be a live contender. KING OF DELTA is holding form and could take home a cheque. CHAPEL JIVE and BLAZING WINTER could make the frame.

Verdict

KING OF THE DELTA sets a very tall standard if not held back by this new trip. Blazing Winter makes most appeal of the others ahead of Bockscar.

Verdict

GREEN PLAINS has class, however, she makes her track debut and comes off a break. COVERED IN SNOW needed her last run and will come on. WRECKING BALL drops down to 1000m again and could double up this track and trip. Stable mate QUEEN LAURIE seems held by SINGING IN SEATTLE on a recent meeting. PHILLYDELPHIA has a low weight and could grab victory. WINTER WATCH could win fresh.

Verdict

WRECKING BALL is just about the pick in this line up and can notch a fourth C&D success. Winter Watch rates the main danger, while Singing In Seattle looks the one for third.

Verdict

VAN HALEN has ability but may need the run and concedes fillies SALLY CALLED and XPLOSIVE KISS 5,5kg which could cost him. SALLY CALLED needed her last run badly and should make a bold bid. XPLOSIVE KISS toyed with her field on debut and could be anything. GREEN HAZE is used to blinkers now and should be right there. MY BOY CALOI could just need it.

Verdict

VAN HALEN burst onto the Grade 1 scene when winning at Scottsville and will be hard to beat. Sally Called is the danger.

Verdict

SHIFTING SHADOWS won full of running after a rest and despite 61kg on her back could go in again . BULLSADE has found form and could complete a hat-trick. INYANGA is never far off them and could get into the action. PAREE races before this, loves the track and has won over this trip. TRIP TO IBIZA and LUNAR DANCER could take home minor money.

Verdict

PAREE can strike here for the second time in a week. Trip To Ibiza could be the one for second ahead of Shifting Shadows.
