1.45 #1 AFERPI arrives here having shown significant promise on the gallops and he can prove up to making a winning debut.
While #6 HIGH PRIESTESS is the standout newcomer and given his pedigree, it would be no surprise to see him run a big race on his debut, paddock look adviced.
2.15 #2 DALLAS won in comfortable fashion on her latest start and is well worth another try at this level.
2.45 #7 TEQUILA TORNADO is starting to look a shade exposed but still has scope for improvement and has a chance to shed his maiden tag in this moderate field. While #10 SULTANA will appreciate the step up in trip and cannot be discounted.
3.15 #6 GALVARINO got off the mark in style at the second time of asking last season before finishing faraway third (slow out) to good type Abira. Will appreciate step up in trip and is the one to beat.
3.45 Sparingly raced #3 COSMOS arrives boasting an unbeaten record and is taken to handle the rise to class 1 company.
4.15 Multi-classic winner #7 WELL CONNECTED is certainly good enough to open her account at winter classic level, and with the assistance of David Allan in what could be a tactical affair, she gets the vote ahead of the promising 3-y-o Gift Of Grace.
4.45 There is very little to chose on form in this weak field and so it may be worth taking a chance on handicap debutant #2 INVICTA, who has showed some promise earlier and can get off the mark in this set.
5.15 #7 WHIZZO has been off the track for over a year and a half but was impressive 2nd on debut when last seen and is taken to win a very weak handicap.
