BUSTED HALO had a number of these behind when runner-up over 7f here earlier in the month but may have to play second fiddle again, this time to PLEASANT LEE. The selection returned from 11 months off with a dominant 4 /12f success here last month, should come on for that run and may take some catching now up in trip. Lass Moment is another double seeker to consider.
WIN: PLEASANT LEE
VALUE: BUSTED HALO
OFFSHORE TRIP was in fine form before weakening late on over 6 1/2f latest and is a big player now back down in trip, while A Powerful Tale returned to form last time, but RING THE BELLA could be tough to beat if in the same mood as when running away with a similar Mountaineer contest earlier in the month.
WIN: RING THE BELLA
VALUE: OFFSHORE TRIP
HARD BEING ME has been threatening to score, including when runner-up over course and distance latest, and could get his reward today, with the benefit of match-fitness over the returning BAT TWO ONE.
WIN: HARD BEING ME
VALUE: BAT TWO ONE
ROCK ON only found one too good (Windsor Legend third) when bidding for a C&D hat-trick latest and could be the safest bet in a tricky event, although Sagebrush, Savagery and Shuddawuddacudda are all feared.
WIN: ROCK ON
It is hard to look past GEORGE TOWN CAT, who ran out a facile course and distance winner before a good second latest and he appears to have less on his plate today. No Mistake N Me, On This Day and POPLAR AVENUE can fight it out for the silver medal.
WIN: GEORGE TOWN CAT
VALUE: POPLAR AVENUE
Having signed off 2019 with victory in a much more valuable event, HYPOTHESIS has returned with two good efforts in a higher grade than this and gets the nod to make the most of this drop in class, possibly at the main expense of WINDSORS FOR IT and Majestic Seas.
VALUE: WINDSORS FOR IT
This is wide open and only a tentative vote goes to SHE GIVES ME FITS, who was narrowly held when bidding to make it two wins from two over 4 1/2f and the lightly-raced filly has scope for plenty of improvement now upped in trip. Manarola and TECHNIQUE ONLY rate the biggest threats.
WIN: SHE GIVES ME FITS
VALUE: TECHNIQUE ONLY
WORKPANSOMETHINGS had a few of these behind when runner-up over 7f earlier in the month and gets the nod to go one better today, with the reopposing CITY PRINCESS (second) and Sterling Furiosa possibly the main threats.
VALUE: CITY PRINCESS
