AN CHULAINN is the most exposed but a handicap rating of 75 is usually enough to pick up one of these lowly maiden races. Mark Johnston's filly gets the nod. Jolly Red Jeanz posted a better effort when runner-up over track and trip last time and looks a threat along with Baltic Brave. The latter makes his debut on the Polytrack while racecourse debutant Distant Past is related to a couple of winners and won't have to be anything special to get involved in this company.
