** Best Bet   Sharp Starr was consistent throughout her first nine starts with five different jockeys which says much for her disposition. Beat better in the Grade 3 Go For Wand by a neck and was 2 to 3 wide during the race, indicating she has remarkable staying power. McCarthy reunites with her, aboard for her 15 length win.

 * Best Value  Investment Grade sports four solid works since privately purchased by trainer George Weaver. Drops her in for a tag here; expecting improvement and a positive outcome.
