Verdict

Division one of the maiden and this does not appear to be the strongest maiden ever staged at the track, however, we are with COUNT OF ANJOU on this occasion with Grey Bunting and Exceedingly Bold the others to make appeal. Richard Hannon has two in the contest and this 140000 US dollar purchase catches the eye. Related to a number of smart six and seven furlong performers, the trip should not be a problem. Grey Bunting is a half brother to Time Medicean. The suspicion is that he will improve for another year but there is little doubt that he is from a family of winners. Exceedingly Bold has the edge of experience. That was a fair run at Ripon on debut behind Hold Your Colour but we would have hoped for more on reappearance. Brian Meehan¿s juveniles aren¿t normally tuned up first time out though Aultcharn has a very decent pedigree. Strictly Dancing looked as if his previous experience here would not be lost upon him. Sweet Secret is the one to take away for the future. Her breeding suggests that anything she achieves here will pale into insignificance as there is plenty of middle distance expertise lurking within her constitution. Amanda Perrett¿s horses are running better than what they were so a note of Green Energy¿s position in the market is advised. Count Of Anjou makes most interest for today.
