Timeform on Veritas

#6 Great Dictator - R5 Scottsville (14:15 BST)

The one that has achieved the most in here is Great Dictator and he looks to be the one to side with here. He's been running with credit this year without getting his head in front but this looks weaker than previous contests and he can rectify that today. Panza looks like giving him most to think about with Welakapela heading the rest.

#11 Veritas - R6 Scottsville (14:50 BST)

Clear on our weight adjusted figures, Veritas rates as the best of these by some way and her recent efforts back that up. She is in good form and looks capable of winning this contest. Moon in June and Statute look to be set to battling for second, with slightly preference for the former.

#8 Sea Sponge - R7 Scottsville (15:20 BST)

Sea Sponge rates as the best of these and his win at Greyville in April is the best on offer. He's been running well since, showing he can still be competitive off his new mark and now back up in trip, he can go in again. Impact Zone and Before Noon look to pose the biggest threat.
