Beaten in a couple of handicaps over track and trip last month, Handwoven sets the standard back in maiden company. But a few of these could improve past him including INHERITANCE. The latter disappointed at Kempton on her return but handled soft going at Newmarket last year and her powerful yard boasts an impressive strike rate at the track. Zain Dream is another who was expected to do better last time and he's not easily dismissed and neither is Dynamic Vision on his recent third at Lingfield. There should also be more to come from Coin Broker this season and she's another to consider.
