Verdict

This is a poor maiden to begin the day and most of these have had enough opportunities. QUEEN OF ALBA may have a bit of scope and the former Ireland-trained filly certainly improved when runner-up to Earl Of Carrick last month with several of these rivals behind. It won't take much more to gain her first success and she's handed the vote though it's a surprise to see stable jockey Richard Mullen on board Wise Thoughts, who may be capable of more than we've seen to date. Midnight Moon was just in front of the selection when they were behind Maali in December but has run poorly subsequently while Journalistic is held on latest form. Petty Officer may prove more of a threat as he appears to have improved in his two latest starts.
