Verdict

Sometimes it can be a concern when a horse consistently goes close in maidens without managing to get off the mark, but there should be no such fears about BRICK BY BRICK. Jessica Harrington's charge has been genuinely unlucky not to get his head in front in at least three of his four races so far, and with more possibly to come at the minimum trip, he should be able to hold on this time, especially if allowed an easy lead. There are a number of unknowns in the race given how many newcomers there are, but none absolutely leap off the page, with Betsey Trotter appealing most of the debutants, ahead of Abamanova.
