MAJESTIC LADY has been a little frustrating to follow but we feel she can at last get her head in front, while Silca Meydan and Duke Of Bothwell will prove the likely dangers. The Barry Hills trained filly has gone close to winning on a number of occasions and although she is proven only to be moderate this will be her easiest opportunity to date. If she can recapture her best form and she can handle the all weather surface she can at last get her head in front. Her main danger will be Silca Meydan who is officially rated five pounds superior. He ran well here over course and distance in March but he disappointed on his handicap debut at Yarmouth last time out. If he can recapture his form he will not be too far away. Of the newcomers Duke Of Bothwell looks the most interesting. Trainer Richard Fahey does well with his debutants so the market should prove to be the best guide to his chances. Majestic Lady looks the pick on paper and is the firm selection to break her long awaited maiden tag.
