Verdict

MAGNETIC SPOT was disappointing on her latest outing when beaten a fair distance but she is better judged on her efforts before that run where she proved to be more reliable. Tiz Beauty and the class-dropping Laker Lady look the most likely threats to the selection.

Verdict

ALTA RITA has been running slightly below par recently but the drop to this level should do the trick and she can bounce back to form. Sister Jib and Que Hansen are both in very consistent form and can prove capable of taking advantage if the selection fluffs her lines.

Verdict

This looks a match on paper between LIL MS PERFECTION and Urawesomeblossom, with preference of the pair going to the former on the basis of her recent run when finishing ahead of that rival when third and fourth here last month. That form is expected to be confirmed, while newcomer Sanctuaire Spot is worth considering.
