Verdict

RAVEN RIDGE made the frame in a tougher maiden race than this at Doncaster on his debut and today's faster surface is likely to suit. Mayfield Boy finished ahead of Little Bruv at Beverley last time but, like the others with racecourse experience, he has plenty to find to match the selection and a newcomer may prove a bigger danger. Of those, Al Zaman Thaman is worth noting but Derby entry Think Ahead makes more appeal.
