Timeform on Eight Oaks

#2 Eight Oaks - Aqueduct R2 (18:21 GMT)

Eight Oaks goes first-off-the-claim for prolific trainer Linda Rice and is likely to take a step forward on this first start for her new handler. It's a Chance was a fair third last time and can make the places again, while Sister Alexa is another that can be thereabouts.

#2 Kansas Kis - Aqueduct R4 (19:25 GMT)

Kansas Kis has shown enough in four starts to date to suggest she's up to winning a small maiden, and this one doesn't look particularly competitive. Henni Penny has run well on both turf starts and should be the biggest threat if handling dirt for the first time.

#1 The Great Johanna - Aqueduct R7 (20:55 GMT)

The Great Johanna had a bit of a wide trip when failing in her hat-trick bid last time and can make amends in this similar contest. Gilda Marie may well emerge as the biggest danger, while A Bridge too Far can take of the a share minor money.
