Form & Verdict

Maiden has run some cracking races in defeat against classy rivals, including Concert Hall and Discoveries; another fine effort on seasonal debut over 1m behind a subsequent Listed scorer and the step-up in trip here should suit on handicap bow; chance.

Leopardstown nursery winner last year hadn't looked progressive this term but took advantage of a falling handicap mark when running away with a four-runner 1m4f handicap at vFairyhouse last time; this is much tougher off 12lb higher.
