Verdict

This isn't very competitive and could be between three long-standing maidens. Basic Training has shown enough to suggest she can get involved, as has Candy Pants, but MAIN LINE PHILLY occupied the runner-up berth for the sixth time over track and trip recently and she is worth one more chance.

Verdict

Shiny Finish faded in a stronger race after winning over course and distance and could bounce back, while this is the easiest task that Path Dependent has faced for some time. WHAT THE CHUB has also mixed it in better races and can show his appreciation for the return to Penn by taking his record here to four victories from six attempts.

All but one of these did battle in a stakes contest here a couple of weeks ago, and INDIAN BEAUTY fared by far the best in finishing a half-length second. She can confirm that superiority over third home Golden Promise, with Artattack the new face, although she has been off since struggling in a $100k Laurel race in September.

Verdict

Sydney Time was only fourth behind Elnath and Amanda's Best over track and trip before improving past the winner to score over slightly further. All three should be in there pitching, but STAR EIGHTY is taken to capitalise on having her sights lowered after struggling at Gulfstream on her return from a nine-month absence.

Verdict

After hitting the crossbar on her first three starts, Noisy Ripples has faded disappointingly twice. She is sure to force the issue again but could be run down by CHEROKEE SKY, who has made some progression between each appearance. Christmas Eve was never a factor on her introduction but could step forward from it.

Talk To The Media was in front of Spotty Zealous, Scobeyville, Cowboy Chrome and Tore Down when second last time, and looks the primary danger.

Verdict

VOCAB has offered glimpses of encouragement in stronger races than this and he has more scope for improvement than Touchdown Banwell, who beat the similarly-exposed Mountain On Fire to the runner-up spot last time. Copperhead was behind them in fourth but with just three runs under his belt, could improve past both.
