LORD BYRON could well be helped by the first-time blinkers after he wandered a little when a decent sixth in a better race last time.
His placed efforts before that give him every chance against some modest opposition.
Hay Hay My My is getting the hang of things and proved his staying power for this mile distance latest.
Frio put in an improved effort when third last time and wouldn’t have to show a lot more to figure.
LEM ME TEL YA is consistent at this level and had Resident and Doc Kane eating his dust when winning over 6f here last time. Dropping back half a furlong shouldn’t be an issue and he can make the most of his inside draw.
Resident looks the biggest threat again as he’s proven at this trip and is a regular in the placings.
Epic Drama has moved yards on the back of a convincing win over a similar distance last time. He had almost three lengths in hand so the form should stand up.
SHE’S GOT MOVES is coming down in class and going over a more suitable distance, which should add up to a win. This is her first spin around and she’s drawn the ideal stall provided she’s quick away from the gates.
Tiz Her Way clocked a personal best when third here last time. That was over this mile distance and there’s every chance she can take another step forward.
Baci was a place behind Tiz Her Way last time and there won’t be a lot between them again as she’s another who seemed to appreciate going over the trip.
KALU was in winning form in a much stronger race than this last time when running the legs off his rivals from the front. Coming out of stall nine isn’t perfect but his early pace can get him in the right pace before his class kicks in.
Sir Higgins is on the rail and was well backed before scoring here last month. He stays in a similar grade and is the main danger.
Elzabe’s On Board and Rosas Way ran well against each other when second and third here last time. There’s no reason why those placings should be reversed today.
MAJESTIC MELODY is coming back from a break but has been well prepared and his form before that layoff was decent. His trainer has been firing in the winners lately which is another positive.
Flying Bankroll is proving to be consistent with a win and two seconds from his past three outings, all around here. Horses at this lowly claiming level are usually up and down but he’ll be on the premises again over his best distance.
Yei Yei let favourite backers down here last time but was knocking on the door before that and could bounce back.
CLASSY OF COURSE kept it simple from the front here last time to land her second win in three outings. That was over this mile distance and she has the ideal rail draw to pull off those tactics again.
Tizaprincessa is drawn in the car park but has form in much better races than this so can pick enough off to hit the frame.
Port Salerno is not without a chance coming back from a break to make her Tampa Bay debut. She was in excellent form before and should be capable of winning races around here.
LADY LOVE was a good third in a stronger race than this over a mile last time. The drop in trip and class should see her right in the mix.
Cocktail Skirt looks a threat after she returned from a long break to finish a good fourth. That should have straightened her out and her form last season was strong.
Patriotic Endeavour has been on the premises on her past runs and was well backed last time. This is her favourite distance and her winning turn may not be far away, while Speeding Starlet is out wide but likes this track.
COLTRANE is rarely out of the first three and followed up a good win with a good second over the dead mile here last time. She is proven in this grade and will be right there again.
Total Tap had three lengths in hand when scoring here three weeks ago and should run another good race from his low stall.
Navy Armed Guard had no less than six lengths in hand when winning over a mile latest and a repeat of that would give him an obvious chance.
