Verdict

This maiden looks a match between Dazzle The Crowd and EFFERVESCE and with the latter getting the better draw Sir Michael Stoute's runner gets the nod. Though looking a little exposed she sets a fair standard rated 76 and this looks an easier assignment than some she's been set. Dazzle The Crowd ran an encouraging debut and wouldn't have improve much on that to take this while Zenarinda looks the only other to take seriously but she has plenty to do at the ratings. Effervesce should finally get off the mark.
