Verdict
This is not the most competitive of maidens despite the number of runners. Edene D'Arc looks the pick on form but her failure to quicken raises doubts and she may need the ground to be even more testing than the current descriotion of soft. The McManus hoops will be every much in evidence on horses who have plenty of potential. Jockey bookings indicate Drop The Anchor may be the most forward and he is worth noting in early trading. AT THE ACORN has the stronger form credentials having been third when claimer ridden on his Limerick debut in a race that did not bring his stamina into play. He will be hard to beat granted a stronger gallop here.
  1. At The Acorn
  2. Drop The Anchor
  3. Edene D'Arc
