An uninspiring maiden to start proceedings. No doubt Blades Boy and Classy Lassy will improve but they were well beaten on their respective debuts, as was The Bunny Catcher. So it would be no surprise if one of the newcomers were good enough and a speculative vote goes to SECRET APPLAUSE. She's related to a couple of horses who both scored as two-year-olds and is just preferred to Paparima, a half-sister to five winners. Champagne Babe's dam won over today's trip and she could also go well.
