Verdict

GREAT DEMEANOR has shown enough to suggest he can win an ordinary maiden. A runner-up at Kempton last week, he should take care of Fire Fairy and Lively Little Lady though one of the quartet of newcomers may prove more troublesome. All are related to winners but Roger Varian's decent strike rate at this track means Kabbaas is worthy of attention along with Fearless Lad, a half-brother to multiple Polytrack winner Country Road.
