An ordinary maiden in which the Willie McCreery-trained pair could dominate. Fitrah showed promise last season in better company but has an absence to overcome so we'll give another chance to the four-year-old SOUTH RING, who sports blinkers for the first time and only found one too good over track and trip last month. Red All Star could be best of the rest having caught the eye in three runs over longer trips, though Boughtforasong has been placed in two of her last three outings.
