This is tricky as all three newcomers look capable of picking up an ordinary maiden. Zain Joy and Artistical are related to plenty of winners and the 75,000gns colt Moortahan is worth keeping an eye on representing the Hannon yard. Those with experience are looking to replicate last year's best efforts but Kept went backwards after his second at Ripon and Country Western was unable to match a debut third at Newmarket in a couple of subsequent starts. STRICTLY SILCA also disappointed having finished runner-up in Listed company at Ascot in July but Mick Channon landed a double on the all-weather during the week and his filly gets the speculative vote to make a winning return.
