Des Bois historical data/form

ACTSPECTATION left his debut performance well behind when scoring impressively over 5 1/2f here and, with further improvement on the cards, he might be able to complete the double. Feared most are Des Bois, who has been knocking on the door, and other last-start winner Leaveittoquay.

Designate historical data/form

Emely Heart was much improved when runner-up over 6f here last time and merits consideration heading back up in distance, but preference is for the less exposed BE WITH US. She made a pleasing debut when fifth over 6f at Presque Isle Downs and can improve for both stepping up in trip and for the use of Lasix. Captain Anne holds each-way claims.

Grab A Handful historical data/form

Cartayon has his sights lowered and is one to note, but this could be fought out between EL MOYETO and Grab A Handful, who finished third and fourth respectively in a 5 1/2f course event 11 days ago. The former also came out on top in a September clash and is taken to confirm his superiority.

Flying Around historical data/form

Forced Motion just got the better of BACKLASH when second and third respectively in a similar track and trip event last month, but the latter is most consistent of the pair and he might be able to reverse that form en route to a win. Balotelli and Starship Thor are other respected players.

Quietly Cuba historical data/form

TWO PUTT is strongly fancied to regain the winning thread after a fast-finishing second over 5 1/2f here last time. Quietly Cuba wasn't disgraced in fifth that day and should run another decent race, although the one for exacta purposes might be Far's Chief, who had been running consistently well prior to a slightly disappointing effort latest.

She has won four times from 5f to 6f. Beaten 3 1/2l by Blushing Bella when second of 7 at 17-4 on her latest outing at Belterra Park over 6f in September. Must enter calculations on her return from a mini break.

Coronela historical data/form

COLLEENS STORM recorded her 11th career victory in fine style over track and trip 18 days ago and she will prove difficult to beat once more. Having that said, Coronela was running consistently well prior to a small break and demands respect, as does Roraima, also a winner here last time.

DEACON faces his easiest task to date, as well as dropping in trip from last time, and this prize looks his for the taking. Vandross also eases in both class and distance and rates the biggest threat, ahead of Side Car, who is clearly a lot better than showing last time.

Hard to be too confident about any of these, but there was plenty to like about HE'S PRETTY CLEVER's recent third-placed effort over track and trip and he should go close with a repeat performance. Everglide Drive and Our Boss are others to consider.
