Verdict

PLAY BIG was burned in a speed duel last time and ran way below form. This maiden has a much better shape for a front end type and he may rebound. Blameiton Brooklyn was entitled to need his comeback run in the same event. He ran a fine debut back in August 2015. Chomsky would crush this field if he runs his best race.

Verdict

CORAMOSS went close on her return after a near three month absence. That was on turf but her form on dirt is just as good. She has the tactical speed to get a good position early. That is not the case with Even Bette who will set up shop at the rear. The well drawn Esther The Queen and improving Cheering For Al have claims.

Verdict

Haveaniceweekend ran second here on her first start for her new trainer. That is decent form in the context of this weak event. She has had nine starts and the less exposed LATE NIGHT KISS and Axe Capital may improve passed her. The former ran much better second time out. Axe Capital drops in class and is tried on dirt again.

Verdict

ETHAN HUNT has form in better events including a third in a stake. He looks the one to beat now running in a maiden claimer for the first time. Save The Tigers ran much better second time out and his trainer is in fine form. There are a few in here that are lightly raced and/or dropping in class. First time gelding Barnacle Bill is one.

Stakes winner last year MY SAVANNAH BELLE hasn't won this term but she's shaped as if she retains all of her ability. She is plunged in class today and will be hard to beat if she runs her race.

Verdict

LUNAIRE seemed to run out of stamina over a mile last time. He's likely to run a lot better cutting back to six furlongs. Driven By Thunder may have won on debut but for a slow start. He gets a class test on the back of that. Hardened attended a wicked pace and unsurprisingly faded first time out. Newcomer Zip Van Winkle could be live.

Little separated True Bet, JOHN'S ISLAND and Celtic Chaos in a similar event last month. In theory the order should be the same but the pacey True Bet can put the short ones in late on. Saratoga Heater looked much improved at Saratoga with back-to-back victories. A lay off since and his rider seemingly to prefer the selection are worries.

Mark Twain may improve now racing in blinkers, while Mid Ocean could be a late threat.
