Lincoln's handicap rating of 78 is normally good enough to win an ordinary maiden but he keeps finding one too good and AN CHULAINN is preferred. The latter returned a losing favourite at Salisbury last time but gets another chance in this. She's preferred to stablemate and newcomer Insaany with the other debutants Uplifted and Automated, a rare runner at this course for Clive Brittain, also worth noting. Derbyshire, Excellent Royale and McCarthy Mor failed to get involved on their respective debuts but look likely improvers.
