    Top Pick
    1 Prince Albert   F: 84X64
      B(10) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Jason Waddell )
    Much better run for fourth last time out and that form should stack up nicely for this. Wide draw won't matter over this distance.
    Main Danger
    11 Two Madison   F: 08X82
      B(7) W(56.5)
    Knocking on the door after running a game second last time out. Gets a good chance to win and the each-way odds appeal.
    Next Best
    13 Sweet Sereia   F: X0563
      B(2) W(56.5)
     ( J-  Sam Weatherley )
    Indicated a return to form when third last time out. Could offer some value for punters in this.
    Include in Multis
    12 Acacia   F: 70X46
      B(5) W(56.5)
    Hasn't been too far away in two starts this time in. Won't get a better chance to shine.
    Longer Odds
    6 Superleggera   F: 26
      B(13) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Craig Grylls )
    Drawn wide but with luck, it could add some good value.

    Remarks

    Most of these get a good chance to break maiden grades

    5 Hvar   F: 5580X
      B(11) W(58.5)
     ( J-  Andrew Calder )

      B(1) W(58.5)

      B(10) W(58)
