ISABELLA BIRD could only manage fourth at Newbury on her debut in July. But the three horses ahead of her have all won subsequently and that looks strong enough form to land an ordinary maiden such as this. Much Promise was a disappointing favourite at Goodwood last time but in a higher grade and she should figure in this company while Magnus Maximus can be excused his poor latest effort at Salisbury as he failed to cope with the testing ground. The latter is preferred to stablemate and newcomer One Picture but Secret Hint is worth noting for any support on her debut.
