Verdict

PACHANGA has been knocking and holds the other 2 serious runners PETITE AIME and SING AND DANCE on recent form. The balance are all looking to improve.

Verdict

PACHANGA looks marginally the pick in this field but has next to no margin for error. Petite Aime could be the sternest threat, while Sing And Dance is another with a place chance.

Verdict

DROP KICK was runner-up in his last 2 and could get his just reward. He finished over 3 lengths in front of ELECTROMAGNETIC who should be having his peak run here. KING OF THE SKY could get into the money but appears held by DROP KICK on form. MISTY LIGHT, NOW AND FOREVER, ROCKY PATH (now gelded) and WAQAAS could make up quartets.

Verdict

DROP KICK has quite a significant edge on form and is the one to beat. Electromagnetic is just about preferred for second, while Waqaas might be worth siding with for third.

Verdict

On the Fariha form line PRETTY BORDER should have the measure of both DASHURI and FAVOURITE MODEL, however, on their subsequent meeting all 3 were hampered somehow and FAVOURITE MODEL came out tops. OH MERCY ME and SHEZAHOTTI are in with winning claims having finished ahead of DASHURI. Because PRETTY BORDER has Aldo aboard again she gets the nod.

Verdict

FAVOURITE MODEL holds a sizeable advantage on form and is the one to overcome. Pretty Border gets the vote for second, while Dashuri is one to bear in mind as well.

Verdict

PIDGEON DRIVE improved in his 2nd start and should make a bold bid in a moderate line-up. SERGEANT SMILEY was 5 lengths behind him on debut but will come on with the experience. LAZARUS TREE races as a gelding now and could get his mind on things. MUSIGNY could need it. AFRICAN MAGIC is improving now.

Verdict

AFRICAN MAGIC gets the nod as the clear pick on form, while Pidgeon Rock and Aqulia Warrior might be tough to keep out of the minor places.

Verdict

Wide open. GOA wasn't disgraced in her post-maiden and looks to have plenty of scope for improvement. WOTTAHOTTIE is running close up and is capable over this course and distance. QUATTRO is 1 of 5 from the Grant Maroun yard and good come out best. THEWAYWEMAKEM could get into the mix. KING OF DELTA comes off a maiden win and could go on.

Verdict

AUGUST DUKE holds a sizeable advantage on form and will take plenty of beating. Quattro may be the best bet to follow the selection home, while Heywot is another with place prospects.

Verdict

MOUNT KEITH is in form and despite 62kg on his back could go in again. He beat PIUS OIL by 4,25 lengths but is 4kg worse off and the latter could get into it. STARK was coughing last time when ahead of FIDELIO last time and could confirm. CHAPEL JIVE gets a penalty after a win last week but with HIDEAWAY and MASTER BUILDER could get into the mix.

Verdict

PRINCE JORDAN should be bang there, while River Ayre and Last Battle also require scrutiny.

Verdict

A good contest. BAAHIR is honest and always gives of his best. He should be in the shake-up. HUYSSTEEN drops in distance and it could be the right move. GREAT SHAKA does his best when striding out freely in front which should happen over the extra 200m. SAIL FOR JOY is another honest performer and shouldn't be far off. DONNY G and PLAY THE NIGHT could upset the apple-cart.

Verdict

BAAHIR is just about best of these all things considered but others can't be discounted in an open contest. Great Shaka could be the main danger, while Sail For Joy looks third best.

Verdict

This is not a strong field and any of the 3 reserves could feature if get into the race. SERENDIPITY won her maiden over the mile and showed a return to form last time with Craig (rides again) aboard. PICCADILLY SQUARE should be at peak fitness and must be respected. Stable mates ANGELIC APPEAL and SAMMI MOOSA are capable at best. MONARCH AIR could win this.

Verdict

ANGELIC APPEAL looks just about the pick in an open race. Il Mondo may be the best bet to follow the selection home, while Monarch Air might be hard to keep out of the minor money.

Verdict

Sean Tarry has CINNABON and BELFRY. The former finished like a train over 1400m and now goes over a mile in his peak run. The one to beat. His other runner BELFRY is no slouch and comes off a rest claiming 4kg. Stable companions SHANGHAI PIERCE and CAMEL WALK sport blinkers for the first time and could get into the mix. HEART OF AFRICA, PACHACUTI and SUPERMAX can earn.

Verdict

BELFRY's recent form just about edges this but he will need to be on song. Heart Of Africa could provide the sternest threat, while Cinnabon is also an interesting runner.
