The standard setters in this maiden, Intrusion and Brave Dream, are both of note after some near misses but both might be getting exposed in this company so a better play might be FIELDGUNNER KIRKUP. David Barron's colt made a very promising debut when third of 10 at Pontefract so with that race working out and more likely to come with that run in the locker, he looks the one to beat. Jonelha and Flash City could be two of the more likely dangers after both showed some talent on debut.
