THREE MOONS can end a hat-trick of runners up spots to land this maiden, and she's selected ahead of All Guns Firing and Class Is Class. Comfortable in her previous outings, Three Moons has always managed to find one just too good. This could be her day though, if she continues to improve. Class Is Class is Sir Michael Stoute's debutant; with Derby entries here and in Ireland, he sems the pick of the newcomers, although All Guns Firing, also with a Derby entry, is highly regarded from the Michael Jarvis yard, and will be helped by a high draw. Market support for any could be significant for the newcomers, but we'll go with experience though, and side with Three Moons.
