POETIC BELLE has the best piece of recent form with a second at Wolverhampton. She may finally open her account in this lowly contest. Skidby Mill has a shout on last month's sixth at this track and Multitask will figure with a repeat of his earlier second at Lingfield. Another Name and Hypnotism have yet to threaten in maiden races but won't need that much improvement to get involved in this company, while True Prince was only beaten a nose here back in May and could prove best of the rest.
