Verdict

Brunhilde has shown enough to suggest she can pick up an ordinary maiden but CAPTAIN RYAN has form over track and trip and may just edge this. He finished third here on his latest start and today's first-time headgear may bring about the improvement necessary to get his head in front. Sakhee'ssquirrel had Aweebitowinker back in fourth when runner-up at Brighton a week ago and Flicksta is a newcomer to note in the betting.
