A low-grade handicap in which a first-time visor and an extra quarter-mile may help KEYBOARD MELODY lose his maiden tag. Dermot Weld's grey made his handicap debut over a mile at Galway and ran well enough to suggest he can improve enough to take this. Santo Romano has shown some ability in maidens and Almosthaditall appears to have been racing over a trip much too short and she'll be suited by any further rain. Brog Deas Nua wasn't far behind the selection at Galway, though his pedigree suggests this would be as far as he'd want to go if the ground turns testing.
