Verdict

This isn't the strongest of maidens so a market move for the newcomer Heuston would be interesting as he hails from a yard that can get one ready. Legal Lyric was staying on over 1m3f here last month so this is likely to prove too short but Oh So Lucy should appreciate dropping back in trip after disappointing over further. Strawberry Flavour showed a bit of promise in the UK and Andy Oliver will get the best out of her but this can go to GREAT SOPRANO. He started off in a maiden hurdle before finding 6f much too sharp here. He ran much better behind Mona Brown over the C&D next time and looks the one to beat.
