Kiama Bay will be interesting when going handicapping but this a well-contested maiden in which a few wouldn't be winning out of turn. Elmore Back was pulled up last time at Doncaster but this is a big drop in grade. Mercers Court still has time on his side while Unowhatimeanharry is consistent and was only beaten a length at Stratford last time. REVERB was travelling like a winner at Chepstow last time when a bad blunder stopped him in his tracks. Providing he's none the worse for that experience, he can recoup losses here though Ballyheigue Bay would also have claims on his best form.
