Sent off at 50/1 but offered something to work on when 16 lengths second to smart Eilendover on 12.5f course debut in December. Pedigree suggests this trip will suit.

40/1, little obvious promise on Newcastle debut (AW) 5 weeks ago. Wisteriarose probably the yard first string.

Good pedigree but raced too freely when tenth of 13 in bumper at Musselburgh on debut in November. Went off at only 3/1 so evidently thought capable of better. Has a tongue strap on now.

Power filly. Half-sister to 5 winners on Flat, including useful 11f/1½m winner Mildoura. Would enter the reckoning if the betting suggests she's fancied.

50/1, well held on Hereford debut last month. Plenty of improvement needed.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Irish point recruit MILANS EDGE gets the nod to make a winning start under Rules for the Donald McCain/Brian Hughes combination. Haute Estime was no match for the smart Eileendover on her 12.5f course debut but there's no disgrace in that and the longer trip now should help. The fact Wisteriarose went off second favourite on her debut suggests she's thought capable of better than she showed.

Betting Forecast

13/8 Milans Edge (Ire), 9/4 Haute Estime (Ire), 22/1 Shighness, 5/1 Wisteriarose, 10/1 Milianapower, 40/1 Jen's Georgie, 100/1 Nightvisitingsong
