We have the luxury of some form to go at in this maiden and after vastly improving from first run to second we think that REGAL GUEST can go one better and score here ahead Helaku and the mildly progressive Another Magic Man. The selection showed a liking for this venue last time when he kept on well to find just one too good. That was a vast improvement on his debut effort and there should be more improvement in the offing. Helaku looked in need of his first run when finishing well down the field but he's from a high-class family and should be better with that start in the bank. Another Magic Man is heading in the right direction and this step up in trip should continue him on that upward curve while Phonic has a similar profile to the selection but might be inconvenienced by the softer conditions. This looks a maiden for future winners and Regal Guest should be the first of those.
