Barry Hills has a strong hand in three of the maidens on today's card and the first can go to WHITE FROST. He has finished runner-up in a couple of maidens at Newmarket and unless one of the others with experience shows major improvement, he should be landing this race for the third time in a row for his stable. Lord Emerson had Andiamo Via behind when third at Ripon on his debut and could prove the chief threat along with Green Howard, who also finished third on his introduction at Doncaster. Stylistickhill can do better and Bond Blade may prove best of the newcomers.
