Verdict

Maggio was highly tried when with Nigel Hawke but gave little sign for encouragement on his first start for Patrick Griffin when tailed off at Kilbeggan and he is hard to back with any confidence after that outing with a safer option looking to be AL QEDDAAF, who should justify likely short odds. Don McCain's gelding is nothing out of the ordinary but the opposition looks pretty moderate and the son of Alhaarth need only reproduce the form of his last two outings when placed in better maiden hurdles than this at Kelso and Market Rasen to make a winning return on his first start since May. Dechiper is only moderate on the level and no better than plating class over timber, while Howard Johnson's Jersey Boys looks best watched first time over timber having shown little in three outings in bumpers.
