DON'T STARE has shown enough to suggest he can win an ordinary maiden. James Fanshawe's charge can confirm recent running at this track with Catch The Cider and get off the mark. Munhamer, Tingle Tangle and Legends all disappointed when fancied last time having shown promise on their respective debuts so Lady Cecil's filly Bejeweled makes more appeal on the back of a debut second at Yarmouth last month. Ennobled Friend cost 725,000 dollars as a two-year-old and is one to note among the newcomers.
