Verdict

RIO INNOKO has been in fine fettle at Ruidoso Downs and if he transfers that consistency to this circuit, he will prove very hard to beat. Ignored and Gato De Rayo are closely matched, and Confidentially Who is rarely too far away so has to enter the equation as well.

Verdict

KARLS RAGTIME BAND hasn't performed too badly in better races at Ruidoso Downs, and the decision to lower his sights slightly can have the desired effect. The Lasix experiment didn't work for Rapper Storm so he could improve now, and Complete Indy is another to consider in a moderate contest.

Serena's Storm beat INDIAN VISION to the runner-up spot at Ruidoso, but Dallas Barton's consistent filly didn't enjoy the rub of the green on that occasion and can gain her revenge. Topaz Jewel is edging ever closer towards the winner's enclosure but was behind Indian Vision when they took minor honours back in July.

DIABOLICAL RULER had Off The Wagon and Trace Of Gold in arrears when making the frame in a stakes contest at Ruidoso Downs. A reproduction of that effort will be good enough to get him off the mark here, unless the debutants Stryder and Midnight Ranger are anything out of the ordinary.

Verdict

SHARK RIVER did all that was expected of him when justifying cramped odds at Retama Park and with his confidence boosted, he can follow up. S. O. S. Schiller is on a hat-trick mission and won't give it up without a fight, while Dani's Choice and the returning Nowiks Dome are of interest too.
