Verdict

MODEST GIRL is open to further improvement after only two starts and she caught the eye when finishing runner-up over an extended mile at Hawthorne last month. She displayed enough pace that day to suggest she can cope with this drop in trip and she can see off the attentions of Bikini Hottie and Caribbean Soul.

Verdict

CRUSHING POWDER failed to fire last time but he had proven a model of consistency prior to that and looks worth another chance to confirm the promise of his penultimate third. Sailing Easy drops in grade and is respected on his penultimate success over an extended five furlongs at Mahoning Valley, with Ready Right Now looking the pick of the remainder.

Speak To Him drops in grade and it will be disappointing if he failed to make his presence felt, while A J's Mojo invariably runs his race around here and is another to consider. However, TWO GRAND sauntered clear to score by nearly three lengths over track and trip earlier this month and is difficult to oppose after such a dominant performance.

Verdict

I AM THE KING completed a double in fluent fashion over this trip at Mahoning Valley when last seen in December and his fitness looks worth chancing on this return to action. Just By Chance looks the obvious one to benefit if the selection fails through a lack of fitness after regaining the winning thread over seven furlongs here last time, with Whiskey Sour next best.

Verdict

SCIPION'S GOLD hinted her turn was near when third over track and trip earlier this month and a repeat of that performance could suffice. Valid Offer and Rise To The Top look the pair to concentrate on for minor honours and complete the shortlist.
