1600m – Turf

Demoiselle Four-year-old filly raced largely over 1200m with promise at graded-stakes level but has done poorly since summer of 2017. Tried on dirt last out and now returning to turf mile. Moderate speed. Not a contender.
Il Lume Poor starter that has only made the top five twice since breaking his maiden seven starts ago. Returning for first race since May. Not promising.
Lord Liberal Four-year-old gelding returned after layoff and dropped to this level last out. Habitual poor starter tends to run from midfield or further back. Has 3rd in class above over Nakayama 1800m. Good speed. Could surprise if break is good.
Neo Vittoria Four-year-old filly with only one win has made board in last three starts, including 3rd last out on 2 September over 1400m at Niigata despite missed break. Recent starts all to left, but can race to right. Tends to run from midfield. Good late speed.
Nishino Apple Pie Four-year-old colt moving quickly to open class and graded-stakes level, where showed relative success but failed to win. Returning for first time since last win to this level. Excellent speed, but first start since January. Runs on pace.
Pandora Fountain Four-year-old filly has 2 wins and 2 seconds in 9 starts. Posted two 4ths and one win in three starts this year after returning from 10-month layoff. Has raced primarily to left, and finished 16th in one start to right. First time at Nakayama. Has decent late speed but venue may not suit.
Queen Bee Returning after 10-month layoff. Has two 3rds at Nakayama, one at mile, one over 1800m. Fair speed, could make top three.
Regina D’Oro 3-year-old filly has made board in all four career starts with 1 win and two thirds. Returning from 2 months off following 3rd over Niigata mile. Has 3rd over Nakayama mile. Tends to run from midfield of further back. Excellent late speed.
Schwarz Ritter Broke maiden on 6th try after several close calls, primarily at mile. Finished 5-7-3 in next three starts at this level over 1800m. Runs close to pace or midfield. Return to mile likely a plus.
Seiun Kirabiyaka Four-year-old filly won debut run but has failed to finish better than 5th in last 9 starts. Moderate speed. Not a contender.
Silent Third Four-year-old colt showed promise early on. Sidelined to return 3 1/2 months ago to finish 9th last out after 10 months off. Likely not yet back to best.
Spirit Soul Heart’s Cry 4-year-old colt is 1-6-6-3 in last 4 starts this year, all at the mile, two at Nakayama. Good speed. Third start since returning from 3-month layoff. Improvement expected.
Suzukaze Four-year-old filly with third in open-class mile at Nakayama dropped back to this class from June after long run without success. Has posted 4-2-2-7 in 4 starts since, including three at the mile. Returning after 2 months’ off. Should be fresh. Good speed.
Ten World Reina Three-year-old filly broke maiden in January on 5th start. Raced from behind but showed excellent speed last out on 8 September to finish second under these conditions. Could do well if trip suits.
Thaxted Three-year-old colt jumped to open and graded-stakes level after debut win. Posted fifth in both. Returned after 3 months off last out on 8 July to post 6th over 1800m. Has 3rd over mile at Hanshin. Races close to the pace. Good speed.
Tosho Victor Lightly raced Stay Gold 5-year-old returning to turf after poor showing last out on dirt. Won debut over mile, but has been unsuccessful in following 4 starts. Not a contender.
