The market will help unravel the opening maiden but without that guide will put our faith in Richard Hannon and EBTIHAJ. The list of dangers includes Silver Show, Chevise and Regal Rocket. Our pick is bred to be all speed, being a half-sister to useful sprinters Saxford and Dubai Set, with the latter having been under Hannon's care too. After a fine Royal Ascot the yard continue in good form and Ebtihaj can improve their current 28% strike-rate with juveniles this term, providing of course the market makes the right noises. Silver Show must be factored in to calculations too after her sales price rose markedly as a yearling. Mick Channon is another trainer capable of saddling debut winners although his record here isn't encouraging and this filly, whilst being able to call upon some speed on the dam's side of the pedigree, will probably do better over further. Chevise is closely related to a juvenile sprint winner and also comes into calculations although he probably wouldn't want the ground too quick whilst Regal Rocket really is bred for stamina and appears the yard's second-string. It's disconcerting to see a tongue-tie on Porthgwidden Beach first time but she represents a shrewd outfit and needs a look and in truth this is a race that should go to a newcomer; Darwin Star has struggled to shed her maiden tag through four starts she's beginning to look exposed. Our idea then of that newcomer is Ebtihaj, but the market must be checked first.
