Verdict

ROSE OF KILDARE missed out by a neck at Brighton on debut and was far from disgraced in a hot maiden at Chester's May meeting last time. She gets the vote ahead of Leave Em Alone, who ran better than odds of 80-1 suggested she would on debut here, then ran a similar race at Beverley latest. The Trendy Man and Calippo warrant market checks on their first taste of racecourse action.

Verdict

This doesn't look as strong as the first division and newcomer CALIPPO may well be the answer. Archie Watson's 2-y-os have been quick off the blocks this year and confidence behind this filly, who is a half-sister to a juvenile winner, would look significant. Rose of Kildare and Leave Em Alone have both shown a fair level of ability, but fellow debutante Huraa could be the biggest threat.
