Verdict

PERFACT did well after a break and finished strongly over this course and distance. If this run is not too soon after should be thereabouts. CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE was runner-up in his last 2 but VERDI could make up the deficit over the extra. BOSCASTLE is improving nicely and is coupled with RUNNING FURY (Striker from pole position). TSITSIKAMA BUSH and newcomer PORT KEY can earn.

Verdict

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE is operating at a good level lately and is up to winning this. Perfact is not one to underestimate all the same, while Port Key deserves some consideration too seeing a racecourse for the first time.

Verdict

JOSI DI NERO comes off a rest. Her form has been franked and if ready after a rest should contest the finish. SUN UP disappointed last time but will know more about the turn now. OVER THE LIMIT will enjoy the extra distance and could come on heaps on her debut run. SEE ME RUN, TAKE MY WORD, TEHUANO and debutante SOLEMN PROMISE could get into quartets.

Verdict

JOSI DI NERO looks quite hard to fault and sets the bar, albeit not too high. Sun Up may be the one for second, while Solemn Promise is another that merits respect first time out.

Verdict

SMART DEAL has been threatening and takes on a bunch of battlers here. He should have no problem in opening his account. VOODOO runs a good one now and again and should be in the money. ELATHAN races before this and is another looking for a place stake. RED INVADER and RED SHIRAZ could prove best of the rest.

Verdict

SMART DEAL couldn't justify market support on his most recent run, but is worth giving another chance to leave that form behind. Voodoo can also play a major role, while Elathan also requires consideration.

Verdict

OSSETRA runs on over any distance but with a 4kg claim could grab them late this time. PEARL OF BAHRAIN should be at peak fitness but could be found wanting over this trip. EXCLUSIVITY is having her 3rd run after a rest and could get into the money. SERENDIPITY lost her rider last time but has honest form and shouldn't be far off. MWELASE and ANGELIC APPEAL could earn.

Verdict

ANGELIC APPEAL has an emphatic advantage on form and sets a high standard. Ossetra may be the best bet to follow the selection home, while Serendipity looks best of the others.

Verdict

INSIGNIS comes off a rest. She has the class and could be up to it. The entire field is looking to capitalise if she fluffs her lines. CRIMSON ROYALE is only having her 5th start. She needed it and tries a longer distance now. FARIHA is maturing now and could get into the mix. TIGERLACE is better than her last outing suggests. WINGS OF CHARNE is doing better.

Verdict

INSIGNIS looks to have marginally the best credentials but will need to avoid any trouble. Crimson Royale is fancied as the best alternative, while Angelic is the tentative selection for third. .

Verdict

ALYAASAAT is a top colt and looks a cut above the rest. He ran a good 2nd behind stable companion Soqrat after showing inexperience. Hard to oppose. ROLL OF DRUMS, IDITAROD TRAIL, ELECTROMAGNETIC and SENIOR LIZARD are no slouches and are looking to get into future feature races. JUDD'S ROCKET could place.

Verdict

ALYAASAAT can only improve and should make a bold show. On The Double should be involved at the business end too, while Mutrib is another with a place chance too.

Verdict

Any one of the 8 runners could pull it off. BENJI has won both starts over this course and distance and looking to complete the hat-trick. COPPER JAY ran 2nd in his only try over this trip and should be thereabouts. DONNY G is best over this trip but needs to be in the right mood. WILLIAM NICOL could go in fresh.

Verdict

PLAY THE NIGHT is holding his form well and could be difficult to catch. Starcraft Prince looks second best on balance, while Donny G edges it as the selection for third.

Verdict

MIGHTY HIGH was impressive in both wins to date and looks a star in the making. He is looking to retain unbeaten status and complete a hat-trick. VICTOR FORTH is having his 4th start and is improving with racing. GREEN HAZE has ability and sports blinkers for the first time. BIG MISTAKE did well in his first run as a gelding. SHUFOOG takes on the males and could feature.

Verdict

MIGHTY HIGH is well in front of these formwise and jumps off the page as the obvious winner. Shufoog has to come into the equation for a place, while Big Mistake looks best of the remainder.

Verdict

SHIFTING SHADOWS won impressively after a rest and could go in again. Stable companion QUATTRO is holding form and should be thereabouts again. BLUE DIAMOND ROAD has a chance if overcomes a wide draw. BOATSWAIN is capable and can win if ready after a rest. WELL CONNECTED is running well and could get into the mix. MASTER BUILDER could take home another cheque.

Verdict

QUATTRO looks to have marginally the best claims. Well Connected can't hope for much better than second, while Master Boulder also demands a second look.
