My Claire wasn't beaten far when fourth at Redcar last June but her three other runs were disappointing. Red Style was last on his reappearance while exposed plater Script was flattered by her proximity to Top Trail at Wolverhampton. A J COOK has the highest rating of those qualified to have one and didn't run badly when fourth on his reappearance at Wolverhampton. He may well be good enough to open his account in this modest maiden, though Hit The Lights can't be ignored and Bapak Muda should prove better than he showed in his first season.
