Verdict

Those with experience do not set the bar too high so Flemensfirth gelding DIDN'TSLEEPAWINK is taken to make a winning start given his good pedigree. Fellow newcomers King Arthurs Sword and Moonacura also make plenty of appeal and can chase him home in that order, although the market should prove highly informative in this maiden.
