VELVET BREEZE lost out by the narrowest of margins when finishing runner-up in a stronger event over an extended four furlongs here earlier this month and could prove difficult to beat if proving equally effective over this longer trip.

YANKEE ROSE adopted positive tactics when scoring by nearly four lengths over a mile at Belterra Park last month and this greater emphasis on speed looks certain to play to her strengths.

Winner of five races from 6f to 1m 1f, but last win was over two years ago. Finished 12l behind Skydigger Andy when fourth of 6 at 8-1 on his latest outing at Mountaineer Park over 1m in June. Likely to find a few of these too strong.

Winner of seven races from 5f to 1m. Well beaten at 10-1 behind Thirst For Victory when last of 7 on his latest outing at Mountaineer Park over 1m earlier this month. Would be a surprise were he to reach the winner's enclosure.

Indian Companion historical data/form

EXPLORE is proven under these conditions and was beaten under a length when finishing fourth over track and trip last month. He looks primed to mount a bold bid and is handed a confident vote. Evan's Calling hinted his turn was near when finishing runner-up over a mile here earlier this month and looks next best ahead of Zapata Sky.

Shehasit Too historical data/form

Isadora highlighted her resolution when recording a determined success on her racecourse debut, while Elegant De Domino posted an impressive success on her penultimate start and isn't passed over lightly. However, FANCY FIERCE completed a double in scintillating fashion when scoring by nearly five lengths here earlier this month and is difficult to oppose in her current form.

Ring Of Iron historical data/form

Sahara Goal has finished runner-up on his last two starts over track and trip and could be ready to strike, while Time For Quality has his sights lowered and is respected. However, PEQUENO GRANDE displayed an impressive finishing burst when scoring by nearly three lengths under these conditions earlier this month and is marginally preferred.
