STIR TRADER will be a short-price to open his account in this and deservedly so. He's unlucky to still be a maiden after finishing runner-up in all four starts to date and is a long way ahead of today's opposition. The remainder look to be racing for the runners-up spot and Gran Canaria Queen is the most likely candidate has she was placed over 5f at this track last time while No Plan B has the past form over longer trips to figure. It's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
