I don’t think these last 2 you’ve posted appear to be polar rings but regular spiral/barred spiral

Both of these candidates are known in the NPA and some published polar-ring catalogs

NGC 1772 is a lesser candidate for a polar-ring galaxy, with unusual morphology.

Looks like a regular barred spiral/ring galaxy, I don’t think it’s a polar ring.

Consider including these candidates from this published in 2019?

Been having tech issues lately, for some reason I can’t get the viewer to work well and some comments are randomly disappearing before i have a chance to read them. been having this issue a bit and this… some of the links aren’t working and not showing up good.

But…

here is a good polar-ring galaxy candidate I found next to this blended in galaxy pair that William found

Just asked George Stein if he can add the DR10 dataset and possibly add the northern survey.
