Verdict

Timpanist has not been disgraced in modest all-weather maidens throughout the winter months but it's likely that she'll be playing for more place money here. While it is cause for concern that owners Cheveley Park Stud chose to dispense with the services of GAY GALLIVANTER at the end of her juvenile campaign, the ex-Gosden inmate would be more than good enough here if reproducing her placed juvenile form in Sandown and Bath maidens. Here To Eternity showed little on her two-year-old debut but her yard have already produced a maiden turf winner and Peter Chapple-Hyam's charge would not have to be anything special to score here.
