Combat Zone historical data/form

FRANKINCENSE, related to the top-class Frankel, fetched a whopping $234k at the sales and looks worth siding with to make a winning debut. Gosilently isn't proving the easiest to win with having finished in the places on his last six starts and he may have to settle for minor honours once again. Taniko and Maestro Dearte look the pick of the remainder.

In Heat historical data/form

DEL MAR DIVA has displayed a fair level of form in finishing fourth in her two starts to date and she may prove strong enough to land an event of this nature. Topaz Time disappointed last time but went close when second on her penultimate start over track and trip while Lil Bit Dangerous would not have to be anything special to make a winning debut and completes the shortlist.

Play Hard To Get historical data/form

CAFE FLAVOR sauntered clear to record a decisive success over a similar trip at Del Mar when last seen in November and a repeat of that effort may prove enough for him to come out on top. Prince Of Arabia was last seen taking his chance in a $200k event at Del Mar and ought to prove capable of making his presence felt while the consistent Unapologetic is another to consider.

Lindante gained reward for some consistent efforts with a decisive success over a similar trip at Los Alamitos and has claims with his confidence boosted. However, MR.

LAMBO LUXX has won three of his last six and his latest success over five furlongs at Los Alamitos came in a stronger event than this. He has few questions to answer and can prove too strong for the consistent pair of Pat The Bear and The Natural who both finished in the places last time.

Particleacelerator historical data/form

Particleacelerator would have claims if back to the form of his penultimate success while Johnny Reb has lost out by the narrowest of margins on his last two starts and isn't passed over lightly. However, COASTLINE drops significantly in grade and was beaten just over a length in a Grade 3 event on his penultimate start. This trip suits and he is handed a confident vote.
