Verdict

Difficult to assess. If money comes for a first-timer especially MONOPOLIZE or RIGA D'ORA then it could pay to follow. The former's stable companion THE IRISHMAN found support on debut but never got into it. Watch the betting. HARTLEYFOUR is not going to Hollywood but could take home another cheque. PIECES OF GOLD races as a gelding now after a rest and could win if fancied.

Verdict

THE IRISHMAN has scope to do better and should give it a good go. Chijmes can chase him home, while Riga D'ora also commands a second look seeing a racecourse for the first time.

Verdict

Tricky. PINK was friendless in the betting on debut but acquitted herself well close behind. GOLDEN SPIRAL wasn't disgraced when not fancied on debut and should come on. DUCHESSOFMARMALADE showed up well on debut, however, she comes off a rest and jumps from a bad draw. ROCK SENSATION shouldn't be far off on recent form. Watch debutante FLY THOUGHT.

Verdict

PINK will probably take the beating after a good debut run at Vaal. Rock Sensation would be our next pick ahead of La Bahia.

Verdict

Open. VEGA FOX is improving with racing and should run a big race, SHEZAHOTTI found problems last time and on the O Mercy Me form line holds PRETTY BORDER who speedy cuts and has drawn wide out. The difference in barrier positions could see IRISH WONDER GIRL and A LITTLE LUCK get close together. CASHMEOUSSIDE and EARLY BIRD can improve on their debut runs.

Verdict

IRISH WONDER GIRL sets the bar and can come out on top. Shezahotti makes most appeal among the remainder, while Vega Vox has place prospects as well.

Verdict

INDY ICE has been close up in both starts to date and should be hard to oppose, however, PERFECT PURSUIT has similar credentials but the mile should be down his alley and rates a serious danger. Of the balance MYRRH could run into money here while TI GAR and FRENCH LEAVE are looking for minor money.

Verdict

INDY ICE looks sure to progress again and could be difficult to catch. Perfect Pursuit rates the main opposition, while Ti Gar should also be considered.

Verdict

Dorrie Sham holds a strong hand here with GOLD DAWN and ITSMYDARLIN. The latter is ultra consistent but never strode out last time while stable companion GOLD DAWN will relish the extra. TORTOLA won't let them have it to themselves and must be respected. LIVERPOOL LASS, ELANGENI, DIVA FAUSTINA, UNTIL DAWN and LEOPARD LILY could get into the frame.

Verdict

GOLD DAWN has run plenty of good races recently and gets the vote. Leopard Lily should be thereabouts, while Itsmydarlin deserves some consideration too.

Verdict

Ashley Fortune has done well with recent acquisitions and has another in ENDOFMARCH. Watch the betting. SKIMINAC needed the rest and ran away with a maiden victory. He has early pace to overcome a wide draw. BLAZING WINTER is never far back and the 2,5kg off his back will help. ARANJUEZ needed his last outing but also has a wide draw. KURT'S APPROVAL and PATRIC could earn.

Verdict

HEART OF AFRICA just about appeals most but will need everything to fall right. So Long Spring seems the principal danger, though Whiteleaf Hills also commands scrutiny.

Verdict

ROCKY NIGHT showed marked improvement when winning on debut as a gelding after a rest. He comes off a short rest again and could double up at this track. SEVENTH OF JUNE is running well and if takes his place should be thereabouts. ORAPA should be at peak fitness and could get into the action. St John Grays 3 runners are all capable of popping up. Others could feature.

Verdict

CERTIFIABLE is capable of another bold show and can win again. Orapa has solid place prospects along with Varimax.

Verdict

PERFECT TIGRESS won well on debut but ran unplaced in a KZN feature after. She comes off a rest but if ready could resume winning ways. NINJARA always gives of her best and another honest performance is expected. LAST CHIRP is best over this distance and could improve the stats. CARMALITA should run well and with DISTANT CALL, POOL PARTY and TWELVE OAKS could win it.

Verdict

TWELVE OAKS is probably the best recommendation but has little margin for error. Last Chirp is feared most, while Carmalita could also get a look-in.

Verdict

GOA found problems last time but was rested since. She beat COUNTESS VAR in her maiden and the latter should be on par with MADEMOISELLE on their recent meeting. EFFORTLESS is 1kg better than MADEMOISELLE for 0,5 lengths so shouldn't be far off. QUEEN OF WAR is better than her last run. Stable mate RIVER AYRE, HEAR THE TRUMPET, ILHA DA VAR and RED TARA could get into the mix.

Verdict

QUEEN OF WAR can bounce back to winning ways. Effortless is tough to ignore for a place, while Mademoiselle looks best of the others.
