Verdict

Floating Ballerino has shown enough to suggest he can win an ordinary maiden, though he failed at a short-price when favourite at Lingfield last week. ART WAVE is less exposed with just the one outing at Yarmouth to his name but he ran well enough for third on that occasion and this extra furlong should suit. The others with racecourse experience make no appeal but Devilment is the first foal of a Listed winner and fellow debutant Mukhtazel is a brother to a Group 3 winner. Both are worth noting in the betting along with Rising Breeze.
