Verdict

Some guesswork needed as to who will best handle the testing ground. RED FOUR gets the speculative vote as she's been competing in better maidens than this and her winning half-sister scored in heavy going. Snowy Dawn appeared to act in the soft ground at Warwick but just wasn't good enough while Poor Duke has a second at Yarmouth to his credit though he disappointed when favourite on the Polytrack last time. There should be more to come from both Noble Gift and Entrapping and the newcomer Mystery Woman is worth noting.
