Of those that have raced ROCK MANOR (3rd in both starts) and EL PATRON (good 2nd on debut) stand out. HERTOG can improve on debut. Watch the many first-timers especially the Candice Dawson pair PROMISEOFAMASTER and SAVIOUR as well as TIGER'S ROCK.
WINTER HAZE found support on debut but pulled up fatigued. CELESTIAL FIRE was backed at long odds on debut and showed plenty of speed. Both will know more about it. ALLMYLOVING hasn't been far off in all 4 starts and could get into the mix again. KAYDEN'S BULLLET improved in her 2nd start in Kimberley. Watch betting on the many first-timers.
FLAME FELLA needed his last run and stays the distance. The one to beat. BYRON BAY ran on smartly last time and could turn it around with THE LITIGATOR over the extra. SMART DEAL disappoints every time but will put it in one day. VOODOO is another struggling to crack a victory. HUMOUR ME is improving and could enjoy the longer distance.
LATIN OPUS will be at peak fitness and should be in the shake-up. THE BRASS WAY finished 4th in all 3 starts and was 1,8 lengths in front of BLOCKHEAD last time, however, the latter was on debut and could turn it around. GIMME THE FIRE did better in blinkers and shouldn't be far off. EL SERENO and DUKE OF SWING have wide draws to overcome.
EIGHTFOLDS LASS needed her last outing and should relish the extra. KAYLA'S EAGLE is doing better and could get into the action. DIAMOND'S AND RUBIES comes off a break - respect any market support.TUSCAN LIGHT and SPARKLING GOLD have drawn wide out but could place. VIJETA needed her last outing and with CRYSTAL'S WORLD could get into the quartet.
Another good race with all 7 runners capable of scoring. HAKEEM is honest and should give another good performance. COME THE DAY is back over shorter and shouldn't be far off. YAMOTO never recovered after being hampered last time and could make amends. AMERICAN INDIAN has ability and if in a galloping mood could double up. CASH TIME and COLD CASH are more for the short list.
Competitive race. LA BELLA MIA came off a rest, found support and ran them off their feet. SEE YOU TYGER accounted for WINTER WATCH (never far off), LAWDY MISS CLAWDY, THREE STARS (will do better) and OPERA (blinkers on now) before but failed to produce last time. She could resume winning ways. POOL PARTY could upset the apple-cart.
Another competitive event. ABELIE is an up and coming 3-year-old and impressed last time. With Muzi back aboard could go in again. BULLSADE and TAMMANY HALL could resume battle and it could go either way again. Top weight WITCH OF THE WEST should see out the mile nowadays. Stable companions FARIHA and ONLY TO WIN could get into the action. WAITY KATIE could pop up.
A big field around the tight track could see a lot of scrimmaging and luck in running could decide. MISSOURI looks to have found earlier form and from a good draw could resume winning ways. Stable mate GENESIS improved in blinkers and will be catching late. SHORTSTOP has won this track and trip before. TRIP TO TROY as well as widely drawn GONE WITH THE WIND and RAMBO can earn.
EL PATRON stands out on form and looks to have been found a very good opening. Rock Manor might be the answer to second spot, while Hertog looks best of the others.
KAYDEN'S BULLET was slightly disappointing when favourite last time out, but still appeals as the most obvious option. Dive Captain is another who could have a big say in proceedings, while Allmyloving is not out of it where the places are concerned.
FLAME FELLA recorded an excellent effort last time and is the one to catch. The Litigator will seemingly provide most resistance, while Smart Deal is another with a place chance.
THE BRASS WAY looks fairly difficult to fault and just about sets the standard. Duke Of Swing could be the answer to second place, while Blockhead also has claims.
TUSCAN LIGHT has a very good chance on form and shouldn't really be troubled. Eightfolds Lass is fancied as the best bet for second, while Winning Queen edges it for third.
HAKEEM is just about best of these all things considered but it's an open race. Verdier is difficult to ignore where second place is concerned, while Come The Day might be tough to keep out of the minor places.
OPERA has been hard to fault in recent runs and is just about the pick in this line up. Winter Watch has second to aim at, while Pool Party is another with place prospects.
BULLSADE looks to have just about the best credentials but has little room for error. Abelie can also take a hand, while Waity Katie also commands a closer look.
TRIP TO TROY was the beaten market pick last time out, but edges it as the selection once again. Missouri should chase the selection home, while Miyoshi can scrap it out for third.
