This isn't the strongest of maidens and though MONSIEUR POWER is exposed his overall form, including three decent efforts over the track and trip, should see him home. Bush Pilot wasn't suited by front-running at Cork after a promising comeback at Limerick so waiting tactics will probably be employed and he looks the main danger. Eriniya started favourite on her debut here in September but faded in the closing stages after making the running. She should do better as should Texas Rock, who was a 33/1 chance on his debut here a month ago but caught the eye with a late run.
