Verdict

PICKY BITS made it three wins from as many starts at Penn when successful from the front last time and she will be difficult to reel in. Midnight Princess and I Scream Sunday also raced prominently to pass the post in front most recently, although the latter was subsequently placed second, and if they cut each other's throats, the dropped-in-class Blue Hen Madness is the most likely beneficiary.

Many of these have seen better days, but HANKY DOODLE has been gradually improving this year and may not need to raise his game too much more to break through. Peri Whan and Condo Closing are the principle dangers if reproducing the form that carried them into second on their penultimate outings.

Cumberland Gap had Phil's Cocktail a place behind when second here at the end of last month but may have to settle for another supporting role, this time behind RICK'S SURPRISE. Michael Salvaggio's six-year-old has kept better company than this and this looks a good trip for his return to action.

Teakwood made the frame in a strong allowance event at Parx and there is certainly more to come from him. Gurt Boys has picked up his fair share of place money lately, but this can go to OUR BRUCE EDWIN, who didn't fire behind Teakwood last time but has never finished out of the first two at this track and might be slightly better value.

Verdict

JUMPIN FRAC FLASH had Smooth Service back in third when hitting the crossbar most recently and if he can match the level of that effort, he can find his way back to the winner's enclosure. Candy Shack is steadily working his way back into some form, and Bear's Cowboy is worth a second glance on his return to action.

Verdict

WYFOLD was lacklustre at Laurel last time but his previous defeat here was the only time he has finished out of the frame in five runs at Penn. He has kept better company, too, so is fancied to bounce back. J Edgar made the frame on his latest outing and should make his presence felt again. Haptic Harmony might be best of the rest.

Verdict

JOSHIE gained just reward for his consistency when scoring emphatically at Laurel and may not even have to improve on that effort to repeat the feat. El Guero Guantero is the obvious danger on his last-start Parx third, although Don'tsellhimshort can't be ruled out at this level.
