Verdict

Those with experience have shown little so far with Macarthurs Park still beaten over 10 lengths when fourth at Wolverhampton. Tommys Geal made up some late ground after a tardy start at Windsor earlier in the month but Mandarin Girl's attempt to make all at Ripon only lasted 3f before she faded away. The newcomers won't have to be anything special to figure on that evidence and BRONZE MAQUETTE is preferred to Please Don't Tease of those with William Buick doing the steering. She gets the vote to make a winning start.
