A Maiden race over 7f 32y on standard going. Eleven three-year-olds compete with half a dozen colts taking on the fillies. Karl Burke is a class trainer who not only knows his horses but places them well. Jaeger Train, a bay gelding from Captain Rio out of a multi-winning mare, was expected to take a small maiden auction stakes over this course on debut when racing over 6f. Market Avenue Racing Club Ltd have never been afraid to get stuck when backing their horses and this 25,000euro purchase by Spigot Lodge (Burke) was a little too ring rusty to catch the eventual winner. This step up in distance and experience should afford a strong performance today. The tissue price suggests this youngster will start favourite. However, this gelding has very good win and place claims.
