Verdict

Not a race to set the pulse racing but most of these maidens should find a race at some stage. NICOLA'S DREAM has gone close on several occasions and wouldn't be winning out of turn with the longer trip likely to play to her strengths. She can gain her first success especially as the likes of Tricky Situation and Lady Norlela appear better over longer trips. Southern raiders Mighty Mambo and O Ma Lad are respected but the superbly-bred Minsky Mine has shown nothing for new connections since a promising start to his career in Ireland though he makes his handicap bow in this lowly grade.
