Maximus Xander historical data/form

Tricky race to start. (2) CLOUD SURFING has shown useful means and after three second-place finishes should not be too long in opening her account. She did however fluff her lines when trying this distance so has it all to prove. (4) RED CURRY can challenge for honours if reproducing her best form but also has questions to answer after a disappointing last start. The same could be said of (8) INDIAN JEWEL who having let the side down last time after a promising debut ought to be better. (5) GRACE OF CLIFFS has shown enough to be competitive and could get a look in too.

Probably needed both runs this year. Fitter now and a much better run can be expected.

Garopaba historical data/form

(1) BROADWAY BOOGIE is better than her last run when fifth and dropping in grade should suit and she can return to winning form. (7) GAROPABA was in need of both outings this year and could be ready to strike form. She does have ability when in the mood. (3) SENOR CHARLY and (4) BILWAUKEE are not out of it but are more likely to place than win.

Garrigol historical data/form

Fascinating contest for a small field. (7) GOUDURISK LAUTEIX has confirmed the promise of his debut 2nd with wins at his next two starts most recently when getting the better of previously undefeated (3) MANITOPARK. Both are likely to improve and there should be little between the pair on these revised terms. The latter's stable companion (2) MOSSKY was not far off last time and should have another role to play here. Last-start winners (4) ATLANTIDE and (8) GARRIGOL could get a look in too with further progress also expected from them.

(2) ANTONELLA has been at her best in Spain but one of these days she can win a race in France. (3) SAINTE COLERE is in good form and should contest the finish once again.

(3) KISSMELANDE could be the danger as she won well last time out and was not disgraced when runner-up on her debut. (2) EMMA BELLE and (4) MELODIE CELESTE both come here in good heart and could get involved wit the finish.

Course-and-distance (2) NAADIRAH has done little wrong in four starts. She is obviously above average and should improve with experience so gets the nod in a competitive handicap. (1) THEOCHOP should fare better at this level having contested stronger Quinte races recently so must be respected with a 3kg claimer up. Consistent (6) GOLDEN POWER recent improver (11) SATURNO and capable (6) GOLDEN POWER could play a role if building on recent displays although hat-trick seeking (3) MALAYAN TIGER is unbeaten with blinkers on and not to be taken lightly either.

Eloave Des Goats historical data/form

Nice race to end proceedings and it could be worth taking a chance on (5) HEMIARTON who has dropped in the ratings after two modest comeback runs over shorter. He had however run well over this distance (albeit on fibresand) off higher ratings last year so may have more to offer stepping up in trip. Top-weight (1) RESOURCE has been consistent at this level racing from his current mark and is likely to pose a threat. (3) YOUAREMINE is another running well at present and should have a role to play.
