Stiva historical data/form

STIVA drops in both trip and class for this assignment and can make it third-time lucky. Fairy Wish was a staying-on second over 7f latest and should appreciate going back out in trip, with first-time blinkered Gentle Thoughts also likely to run well.

Majestic Pic historical data/form

SIERRA LEONA has won two of her last three and is fancied to strike again. Robin's Destiny chased home the selection 20 days ago and should give another good account, although Emma'sdiamonddiva, touched off in a similar Penn National event latest, rates the bigger threat.

Try Flying historical data/form

All of the six declared runners have some sort of chance, so TRY FLYING receives what can only be a tentative vote. He notched a 12th career success when last sighted at Penn National and another bold bid looks assured. My Eminence and Whole Lotta Luck should also go well.

Port Louis historical data/form

Port Louis defied odds of 66/1 when beating Crush It (third) amongst others over track and trip last month and the aforementioned pair both merit respect. However, they will have to go some to beat BOBBY G, who won with his head in his chest over 1m here recently.

Palace Kid historical data/form

LAW OF THE LAND has shaped with lots of promise in both starts thus far and can open his account at the third time of asking. Prevail Upon should be winning before long and rates the biggest threat, while Phantom Dance could bounce back to form in first-time blinkers.

Ballivor historical data/form

Celtic Chaos drops back down in grade after a disappointing effort at Belmont and he can easily be given another chance, but the more solid option looks to be SONNY INSPIRED, who doesn't know how to run a bad race. Tybalt might prove best of the remainder.

Plenty here have questions to answer, but PRINCESS ANNE has placed in each of her three starts to date and won't be found many better opportunities to get off the mark. At longer odds, Grand Entrada and My Lila could go well.

3 8-11
77

Successful at 6f and 1m. A winner at 4-1 at Laurel Park over 1m on his latest outing earlier this month, beating Sassy King by 1/2l. Should give the follow-up bid a good go on his first run for a new stable, previously with Linda Rice.

3 8-8
82

Successful at 6f and 1m. Finished 7l behind King Leo when fifth of 12 at 14-5 on his latest outing at Laurel Park over 1m earlier this month. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Lacey Gaudet. Unlikely to be good enough.

Unequivocal historical data/form

It could pay to focus on the last-time-out winners, with LAST CHUKKER making most appeal with his unexposed profile. Major Flirt and Awesome Tracker will also arrive full of confidence and should keep the selection honest at least.

2 8-10

Half-brother to Bottle Walk, won three times at 6f. Beaten by Wicked Son when second of 10 at 9-1 on his racecourse debut at Laurel Park over 5f earlier this month. Normal improvement should see him go close.

Dam won three times at 5f and 1m. Lasix used on debut and it would come as no surprise to see him go close.

8 Burgess

dk c Revolutionary - Honest Truth (Sky Mesa)

2 8-10
 - 

Half-brother to To Be Honest, won twice at 6f and 1m. Doesn't appeal as much as the other newcomers in the line-up.

Burgess historical data/form

TASTES LIKE PLAID made a bright start to his racing career when runner-up over 5 1/2f here and normal improvement will make him tough to beat. His biggest danger could prove to be Taskinas, who was a length and a place behind 15 days ago, with Two L's Meow the most interesting newcomer.
