Verdict

An interesting maiden in which we'll side with DELORIA but there are a host of interesting newcomers to consider whilst Vanishing Grey has also shown a decent level of form. Eve Johnson-Houghton's string have hit form and there was plenty to like about this filly's debut over course and distance when she stayed on strongly from off the pace to chase home a more experienced rival. She holds a Lowther entry so has presumably been showing up well at home and she'll need to run a big race to justify it. Vanishing Grey ran in a fair Listed race last time and was by no means disgraced whilst Itwasonlyakiss should be a factor at this level having been outclassed in the Queen Mary. Richard Hannon saddled the horse that beat Deloria; he is mob-handed and it would be unwise to rule out any of his trio. Tom Dascombe has introduced some nice juveniles at this track in the past and it would be no surprise to see Transvaal Sky attract support whilst Conniption, Cash Queen Anne and Walk On Water are others to keep a close eye on. Asaab was another to show up well on her sole start and she should be in the mix now that she's got a run under her belt but the suggestion is Deloria.
