Weak workriders race. AMORETTA is ineligible as won 14 Sept. TRUTH OF BEAUTY returns from long rest but chance against these. JUANITA has some reasonable form. PURDEY can earn at best. Watch betting on first timers, particularly well bred DURBAN BOURBON.
HAMPTON COURT has two excellent runs and sticks out a mile against these. POWERED BY MALHUB improved over this trip last time and should be respected. TOBY COATES is held on form but can earn again. The same applies to SEVEN SOVEREIGNS. Watch betting on first timers.
Open. MAGICAL CHARM improved in latest and will go close if repeating. SUMMER SUN gets closer each run and merits maximum respect. WINGS OF CHARNE's Maiden win isn't far off. SAHEERA made a creditable debut and will improve. GENEROSO and THE GARDNER GIRL are both well tried but can earn.
Weak maiden. LOYAL LIEUTENANT has been off for a few months, but will cruise this if near best. SWING VOTE can challenge if back in form. SOLDAT, MISTER LISTER, LONDON FOG and LEVENDI can earn minor money.
LEBANESE TRACTOR was a fluent victor last time and can follow up. GOODYTWOSHOES cannot be discounted. EMILY JAY has been facing far stronger. BEAUTIFUL EMMILEE does well this course and distance and could shock. JET START had excuses last time and can't be ignored.
CAL'S CRUSH looked a decent prospect before a four month break. WINTER WATCH is a very good sprint filly, and beat the first named in the Maidens, but is 5kg worse off. PHILADELPHIA is very speedy and goes for a hat trick. LEVI LADY is back in form, and can always pop up. CATALUGA, GUNSHIP and the rested FREELY FOREVER cannot be ignored either.
RIDING SHOTGUN looks a promising sprinter and can follow up a facile Maiden win. TORRE DEL ORO is a lightly raced 4yo, and will lay down a big challenge. DRAGOON is something of a course and distance specialist. MINNESOTA and AIRTAXI can upset.
Difficult. ELUSIVE STRIKE won last Thursday. PROSPERITY tries for a hat trick, and has a fighting chance. DANISH CROSS returned to some kind of form last time, and has to go in. CATWALK TEASE should be in the thick of it. LADIES CLUB is always on the premises, as is QUEEN AT WAR. Go as wide as you can.
