A tricky maiden opens proceedings here and we side with Mick Channon's TOGA TIGER with main opposition from Danzoe and Bradford but with only nine runs between the nine runners, four of which are debutants, the market should offer up some much needed clues. The Mick Channon trained selection is the most experienced of the horses that take to the track and has finished runner up at the last two attempts. He's shown enough to suggest he is capable of winning at this grade and may not come across a better chance than this. Danzoe looked a decent sort on debut at Yarmouth and stepped up on that effort when last seen. He's finished runner up on both his outings to date and should do well here but past form suggest he may be better suited over 5f. Bradford is a half brother to a smart sprinting juvenile, and made some good late headway on debut last time, he should have learnt from the experience and a finish among the minors here doesn't look beyond him. Refuse To Wait was a beaten favourite last time, she set a decent standard on her debut a couple of starts ago and it could be that the heavy ground last time ruined her chances. Saint Sebastian is expected to fare well on debut but he looks unlikely to make the frame amongst slightly more experienced company.
