Verdict

LOBO'S LEGEND will be a hot favourite to win before this - watch the form and betting. KING OF DELTA has ability but finds problems. He should capitalise on the scratching of the Joe Soma runner. KING OF THE BAY, SWEET TRIAL and a fancied first-timer could get into the money.

Verdict

KING OF THE DELTA has slender claims but hasn't much room for error. Agent Kay is the most realistic second preference, while Cinnabon is another with a place chance seeing a racecourse for the first time.

Verdict

WHITE WINTER has been close up in all 6 starts to date and should be thereabouts again. ANNIE THE GREAT showed good improvement last time and jumps from pole position. RED ORBIT is back over shorter and with a 4kg apprentice claim could get into the money. Watch the first timers especially SUMMER SPIN and SHADOW PRINCESS.

Verdict

WHITE WINTER has very good claims and shouldn't be troubled too much. Kitty Coo could be the one to benefit if the selection underperforms, while Summer Spin is another to bear in mind first time out.

Verdict

CARMALITA stands out here. She has been close up in all 4 starts to date and could earn a deserved victory. However, there are a few first-timers that could be fancied - watch the money. Janse van Vuuren has 4 runners, FORGIMME, LUNAR DANCER, DELPHINE and DREAMSAREMADEOF and any could get involved for money.

Verdict

CARMALITA is up to winning this with something in hand and has a clear chance. Lunar Dancer can also play a major role, while Chariot Of Gold could go well too first time out.

Verdict

Top apprentice Lyle Hewitson could prove his ability aboard BALLY SWISS. She needed her last run and could turn it around with GOODNESS ME and GATEWAY TO HEAVEN. Dorrie Sham has a strong coupling in AN AIR OF SUCCESS and KUNGFOOFIGHTING but the latter could come out tops. GOLD SHADES is back over shorter and must be respected. BURUNDI BUSH has a shout if produces.

Verdict

ANGEL OF LIGHT is in decent form right now and is up to winning this. Beautiful Emmilee should chase the selection home, while Gold Shades is in the running for a share of the minor money.

Verdict

Open. SKY FLYER is holding form and should hold MINNESOTA and LAST BATTLE on recent form. MASTER BOULDER is finding form now and should keep GUN FIGHTER (claims 4kg) at bay. DASPOORT, SNOW IN SEATTLE, EXCLUSIVE TRENDY, LAUREN OF ROCHELLE and SINGASWEWIN are all capable of upsetting the apple cart.

Verdict

ALEX THE GREAT is easily the quickest in this line up and is the one to beat. Dorman is chosen to complete for the forecast, while Exclusively Trendy looks best of the rest.

Verdict

RAYDAVERIC just needed his last outing and this run is not too soon after. He should have no problem with the distance. KREMLIN JUDGEMENT is on the upgrade and could follow up on his maiden victory. ORSON wasn't disgraced in his post-maiden and must be respected. FORAFEWDOLLARSMORE was never travelling last time after a break and will come on. TORIO LAKE tries further now.

Verdict

TORIO LAKE has been in good heart of late and is much the one to aim at. Twice A Dancer is fancied to follow the selection home, while Kremlin Judgement also demands consideration.

Verdict

JUST CRUISED IN is honest. He needed his last run and could resume winning ways. DOUBLE MINK won on the 2nd time of asking. He will come on especially over the longer trip and could follow up. ORACLE OF DELPHI showed improvement in blinkers and should be in the fight for honours. SAMAR will appreciate the 4kg off his back and with TIGER JET as well as COSMIC COUNT could place.

Verdict

SAMAR has fewer question marks about him than the others but it promises to be touch and go. Oracle Of Delphi looks the best bet for the runner-up spot, while Just Cruised In has place prospects as well.

Verdict

NEUF DE PAPE is holding form and should again give an honest performance. He beat TIME TO BE GREAT by 1,8 lengths who should get closer for 2kg. EL BOMBERO was slightly disappointing last time but is back over a better trip. SHORTSTOP has a shout if things go his way. Look for improvement from GIVEMEHOPE - he should be at peak fitness. Others with money claims.

Verdict

SWING VOTE continues to operate somewhere near current peak and looks the one they all have to beat. Neuf De Pape could have the most to offer of the others, while El Bombero also demands scrutiny.
