Speedy Move has been competing in better maiden races than this without looking like winning. Both Rio Ronaldo and Skate made modest debut efforts at Windsor and Dear Bruin never threatened when fourth at Warwick. Creative Genius and Lopito De Vega were both well beaten last time and can only improve, so RED MAJESTY will not need to be anything out of the ordinary to land this. He's a half-brother to eight winners including the speedy Caesar Beware and Kevin Ryan's newcomer gets the nod.
