Verdict

EMIRATES ROADSHOW gets a tentative nod for division one of the maiden, selected ahead of Barbarian and Dancourt. Godolphin have found some form, and the selections two runs so far have been encouraging; he cost 800 thousand dollars, and is highly thought of, with entries for the Dewhurst next week and the Derby. He's well drawn in 11, and everything seems to point in his favour. Michael Hills' runner Barbarian was slow to break on debut and well beaten by a stable companion; this is a furlong further, which should be a help. Dancourt looks the pick of the three debutantes, but has to overcome a low draw. Sir Michael Stoute's got a good record in this maiden though, winning it four times in the last 9 years. The usual market check's advised given the lack of form, but we'll side with Emirates Roadshow.
