Verdict

A 30-runner maiden on the first day of the Flat season doesn't look a race to get too involved in and just one favourite has won in 10 renewals. Ahimsa represents Ballydoyle and showed some ability as a juvenile without looking a star though her high draw may be a plus and while Redoutable ran in some decent class events she appeared to go backwards as the season progressed. Rigoletta showed potential and is likely to get involved while Steely Grace ran well enough on her debut behind Bulbul at Naas to be on the short-list. John Oxx has won this twice in recent years and a chance is taken on his newcomer ROYAL VISIT, who is a half-sister to several winning sprinters and is drawn well enough to make a bold bid.
