Good 4L fourth on debut at Fairyhouse (6f, good-to-firm) and drop in trip should suit having finished seventh on soft ground over 7f at Roscommon last time out.

Betting

Forecast

Brunelle (3/1), Bigz Belief (5/1), Crassus (11/2), For The Trees (13/2), Schroders Mistake (8/1), Falvetti (9/1), Not Now Zeb (12/1), Waterville Lady (14/1), Natural Power (16/1), Na Caith Tobac (16/1), Hectopascal (20/1), In A Bubble (25/1), Urban Boom (25/1), Una Vis (33/1), Bass Reeves (50/1), Londonofficecallin (100/1)

Verdict

BIGZ BELIEF showed up well on debut and he can put a below par effort last time out behind him by taking this opening two-year-old maiden. The selection can get the better of For The Trees who showed ability when fifth on her most recent start while third place can go to No Caith Tobac who was a relatively expensive yearling purchase and has a good jockey up on debut.
  1. Bigz Belief
  2. For The Trees
  3. Na Caith Tobac
