INVINCIBLE HEART can break his maiden tag at the fourth time of asking despite the presence of a number of newcomers who could be anything. Third in a conditions event at Doncaster last week, with a 109 rated juvenile less than two lengths in front it would be surprising if any of the newcomers proved up to the task of toppling this Invincible Spirit colt. Of those in opposition Richard Hannon saddles two, the once raced Star Links who was sent off a 16-1 shot for a Folkestone maiden on debut and Merry May a cheaply purchased filly by Compton Place. Battle is an interesting newcomer from the Hughie Morrison yard as he holds an entry in the Redcar Two Year Old Trophy later on this season. Bennelong and Dimander are other newcomers of note but Invincible Heart is given the vote.
