ANOTHRDAYATTHELAKE stayed on powerfully to win over 6 1/2f here last time and, sure to appreciate stepping back up in trip, he could strike again. Atlantic Ruler has put a string of solid efforts together and rates the biggest threat, ahead of Peacock Kitten.
VALUE: ATLANTIC RULER
FORESTDUNGONE has impressively notched a double and he is fancied to round off the hat-trick. Other last-time-out scorers Cajun Creed and Pops Legacy are both big dangers, though.
VALUE: CAJUN CREED
ROSSLARE HARBOUR won decisively here last month and he will take some stopping if arriving in the same mood. UPTOWN RULER performed much better here latest and is respected, as is Applewood, who may have just needed his comeback three weeks ago.
WIN: ROSSLARE HARBOUR
VALUE: UPTOWN RULER
SHEZA MEAN BROAD brings the best form to the table and this could be her time to shine. Dropping in class and stepping up from 6 1/2f gives ZUGERSEE a definite chance, while Destiny Twilight is likely to improve on her opening fifth.
WIN: SHEZA MEAN BROAD
VENN has posted a number of solid efforts in defeat, including when runner-up the last twice, and this could be his time to shine. ARCTIC ROSE and Les Paul are also likely to run well.
VALUE: ARCTIC ROSE
SUCCESSFUL RYKER impressed in his latest victory at Delta (also won at the same track three starts ago) and he rates the one to beat. SOUTHERN SWAGG has won five of his 10 starts to date and is the obvious danger, while Snapper Bite can improve on his comeback effort.
WIN: SUCCESSFUL RYKER
VALUE: SOUTHERN SWAGG
WAR BANDIT stepped up on a couple of solid placed efforts when scoring gamely over track and trip and with that confidence booster under her belt, she might be able to complete the double. There are plenty of potential dangers, however, including FOURSWEETNIECES and Cajun Music.
WIN: WAR BANDIT
EDEN GREY’S KITTEN ran well in better company over 5 1/2f at Fair Grounds last time and this drop in class and step up in trip can see him regain the winning thread. He is four from seven over this distance. MISTAKE PRESENT and Royal Rocket are others to watch out for.
WIN: EDEN GREY’S KITTEN
VALUE: MISTAKE PRESENT
This represents a great opportunity for RAISON MARTINI, who posted a cracking comeback effort over 1m here recently and he will appreciate this drop in both trip and class. MO’S RIDE is unexposed and should run well, as should Flashyboy Bobb, who struck the crossbar over 6 1/2f last time.
WIN: RAISON MARTINI
VALUE: MO’S RIDE
