EMPRESS GAME was backed when narrowly beaten in both her starts and if none of the 3 first-timers attracts money then she should be right there. Year younger TYSON THE BRAVE is improving and could give her a run for money. BREATH OF MAGIC could make the Trifecta. Watch newcomer WINGS WITHIN ME.

SMITH AND WESSON is as honest as they come and should be involved in the finish again. RAINBOW REWARD is improving fast and with 4.5kg less to shoulder should make a race of it. Stable companion COSMIC STAR is more than capable and shouldn’t be far off. Respect two-year-old PRINCEOFGREEN – blinkers improved and carries a postage stamp. WINGS OF NIKE could get into the mix.

WAITFORGREENLIGHT was runner-up in her last two and could make it 3rd time lucky. The one to beat. MICKE’S BOMB found problems over 1600m last time and reverts to a sprint. COCKTAIL GIRL can improve more. WILKIES is not going to the top but could get into the Quartet. LOOK TO THE STARS showed some improvement last time but needs to do better. Watch the 3 first-timers

Wide open. Honest trier SAMOA as well as INSATIABLE (coupled with yard newcomer GOLDEN SICKLE and MIA REGINA – watch) should get close together again. Improvers in the race FENNEC FOX and RED CARPET GIRL warrant inclusion. Two-year-old DAMOSTAR comes off a debut win in new surroundings and is sure to come on heaps. FEATHER THE NEST could pop up.

Another tricky race. MUNCHKIN has ability but could need it. COVERT OPERATOR is running well and could add another notch to his belt. On collateral form TRE AMICI should be involved in the result. Despite winning, IRON SKY as well as PENDRAGON and AXEL COLLINS, have issues. BRONCO BLITZ could go all the way. BLACK EGRET could follow up. KING RAHUL has scope for improvement.

Competitive. BRAVE VIKING beat PRAGMATIST by 0.50 lengths, and it could get closer on 1kg difference. TIZONA gets going late and this track should suit ideally. TRIDENT KING could make a winning debut for his new yard. ATTICUS FINCH and AMERICAN STAR could just need this while SUPREME DANCE, BLOOMINGTON and DESTINY OF SOULS cannot be ignored.

CALIBRE CREST was comfortably beaten when favourite last time but has blinkers on. He could get his act together and make amends. ANGEL OF WAR is holding form and could challenge. SCALLYWAG has reeled off two in a row in his new yard and could complete a hat-trick. CAPTAIN OF GRIT won well after a rest and could follow up. TAMARISK TREE could upset calculations.

CELTIC RUMOURS should hold too many guns for this field. She could double up this course and distance. WOKANDA was not striding out last time and should get back on track. QUEEN OF SHADOWS starts badly but can get into the money. STRANGE MAGIC was obviously not ready after a rest last time – look for a better showing. PRINCESS PHILIPPA takes her blinkers off and cannot be ignored for money. KAYLA’S CHAMP could get into the Quartet.

A difficult race to end. CALLMEWHENYOUNEEDME has been costly to punters but should be given another chance. If she fluffs her lines then many are looking to take advantage. SAVE THE QUEEN and SEA ANEMONE both needed their last runs and could challenge. TRUMP MY QUEEN is better when covered early and will run on. I AM REGAL, DANCING ARABIAN and ISLAND BEAUTY are more of many to consider.
