This isn't the strongest of maidens so expect a big run from Maktoob, a close relative of several winners and out of a mare who won a Group 3. The four-year-old Shipyard made a belated debut on very testing ground at Listowel and showed enough to suggest there are races to be won though FITRAH may just have the edge as her run over this trip at Tipperary last month looked good enough for a race of this nature. Boughtforasong wasn't far behind in that latter event but is looking very exposed after 15 runs.
