In depth

Verdict

Lady Maesmor has looked as though she needed this trip on her two starts to date but still looks vulnerable though her form is comfortably the best of those with experience. Spring Dixie is by the speedy first-season sire Zebedee but Norfolk Sunset is bred for stamina on her dam's side. Fidelma Moon is by Dylan Thomas out of an unraced mare so she's likely to be seen to better effect over further. INDOMITABLE SPIRIT is also by Zebedee out of a winning miler so in the hope he's ready to go he gets the vote in a tricky opener. Everyday's trainer does well here so any market moves shouldn't be ignored.
