Verdict

TAPENZEE found problems in both starts after a long break and should be cherry-ripe now. He looks hard to peg back. JAY ZEE hasn't been far back recently and could get into the money. PACHACUTI never recovered from a tardy start last time. RICHARD LIONHEART pulled up fatigued last time and could do better. ALI PASHA, IN THE GAME, ZAITUNAY BAY and MELLON could make up quartets.

Verdict

TAPENZEE is in a good vein of form and is up to winning this. Mellon earns the vote for second, while Jay Zee also demands respect.

Verdict

If debutante QUICK GLIMPSE has any ability she should make them run. SWEET JULIET is improving with racing and should be concerned in the finish. OUR BISCUIT and FLYING FALCON should again get close together and either could capitalise if the newcomer fluffs her lines. OF THE MOON is running close up and could take home money. PHILLYDELPHIA has plenty of early speed.

Verdict

FLYING FALCON has an emphatic advantage on form and isn't easy to look past. Quick Glimpse is another who could play a major part in proceedings making her debut, while Mumsy has a good shout of a share of the minor money, and is alos seeing a racecourse for the first time.

Verdict

VARSITY PRINCESS meets BURGUNDY ROSE before this but on recent form should have her measure. Watch the form. On that form line PIPKIN comes into the picture having finished in front of them. SURFERS PARADISE wasn't disgraced in her post-maiden and could get into the fight for honours. SUCCESFILLY is speedy and could take home money. Maiden PROSPERITY could place.

Verdict

VARSITY PRINCESS appeals best of these by a narrow margin but will need everything to fall right. Berdanine ought to go well too, while Pipkin also demands scrutiny.

Verdict

MARMOOK is still learning and could record his 2nd win in this his 3rd start. CHIEF SIOUX runs better when covered early and could turn it around with ROMAN EVENING. MINNESOTA can never be ignored for money but appears held by HUNTING OWL on their recent meeting. CANNES and WESTERN WARRIOR are more for the short list.

Verdict

KONTIKI took a large step forward last time and is much the one to aim at. Cold Front is not one to underestimate all the same, while Chief Sioux also commands a closer look.

Verdict

SILVER PEG needed his last outing and could resume winning ways. DUZI MOON is holding form and should again be in the shake-up. Stable companion STARPATH comes off a short rest and must be considered. JACKMAN is never far back and could feature off a handy weight. URGENT FURY is arguably best this course and distance. ELUSIVE FLYER did well in his only try this track and trip.

Verdict

ELUSIVE FLYER can give all these something to think about but has little margin for error. Jackman should be involved at the business end too, while Dan The Lad is the other candidate for the three.

Verdict

STREETWEAR kept on finding when beating SLEEPINSEATTLE by nearly a length over 200m further here last time and it could go either way. TOKYO DRIFT hasn't been far back lately and could get into the action. QUATTRO has a shout if holds form. CRAZY VISION has a previous engagement - watch. I'M A RAPTOR could take home a cheque if confirms latest.

Verdict

CRAZY VISION looks marginally the best of these but it promises to be touch and go. William Grace is preferred for the forecast , while Sleepinseattle is another that merits respect.

Verdict

CAPTAIN CHIPS beat EL BOMBERO by 1,5 lengths in their recent meeting and is now 2kg worse off, however, the latter pulled up short subsequently. APPLE CRUMBLE should be ready to give of his best. CHILI LIME runs before this - watch. FLAG OF FRANCE and JUST A GIGOLO (yet to win this distance) could make the frame.

Verdict

CAPTAIN CHIPS failed to justify market expectations on his most recent run, but is taken to make the most of this opportunity. El Bombero can also play a major part, while Shortstop can make the first three as well.

Verdict

If reserve runners AT A GLANCE and QUEBEC QUEEN get into the race they could be serious runners - watch. PEARL VALLEY ran below form last time and if not troubled by a breathing problem could make her presence felt. SHINE BRIGHT is running close up and should be thereabouts again. ALL DONE won on the 2nd time of asking and has scope. MAIN BABY and MAIN ROLL could earn. Open.

Verdict

INKOLO looks marginally the pick in this field but others can't be discounted in an open contest. Caribbean Queen is the most likely danger, while Shine Bright shouldn't be ruled out.
