Verdict

This doesn't look the strongest of maidens, so it could pay to side with JACK IN THE BOX, a well-bred newcomer from a powerful stable, who wouldn't need to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning start. Supreme Jet sets the standard in this sphere, with Gino Drummer Boy also of interest having offered something to work on in a course bumper early last month.
