A competitive maiden auction in which several appear to have decent claims. Lady Vermeer's sixth at Newmarket hinted at better to come while Dance With Dragons and Notional Demand should be thereabouts again. Benoni will have learned plenty from his introduction at Sandown and Lady Marmelo wasn't beaten far over C&D last time. Newcomers Mumeyez, Secular Society and Forced Family Fun all look capable of winning races on breeding but the one to beat may be BLUE NOVA, who is improving with experience and is fancied to recoup Kempton losses sooner rather than later.
