PINK SYMPHONY can put her experience to good use and land this division of the maiden, while Tawafut may well emerge as the main danger on debut. The latter represents Barry Hills, whose juveniles are having a better time of it than last season and this Nayef filly may well make her presence felt, being related to winners at this age and trip. The selection, however, just has that little bit of experience that tips the scales in her favour. A Montjeu filly, she performed with plenty of credit in a pretty hot maiden at Goodwood and should be much better for the outing and ready to strike this time. Magic Doll is another well bred newcomer who should be at home over this trip for starters. With one in three of the Godolphin two-year-olds being good enough to win this season she has to be taken very seriously and she should act on the ground. Snoqualmie Star is related to juvenile scorers and will benefit from a relatively quiet debut over course and distance last time, though she may have to wait for other days. Texas Queen will appreciate the step up in trip on this, her second start, while Paleo's pedigree entitles her to respect, though her racecourse performances so far leave her a bit to find with the selection. Consider Yourself is by precocious US dirt juvenile Afleet Alex and is not easy to assess other than to say that his sire won numerous races at two when dirt conditions were fast. A market check is advised where he is concerned, but Pink Symphony receives our vote.
