Verdict

An above-average juvenile contest for this time of season with the standard set by Lady Chloe, an able sort for the Kirby team on the level this year before running out a comfortable winner on her hurdling debut at Stratford. That experience should stand her in good stead here and she's the one to beat. Nevertheless, the McCain team unveils LEXI'S BOY, a notable purchase from the Kevin Ryan yard in midsummer, having landed four successes on the Flat this year. He could be a very useful recruit if taking to timber and is worth chancing against the filly. Another interesting newcomer is Mica Mika, more than useful on the level for the Fahey team and unquestionably worth a spot on any short-list.
