5:30 Ripon On The Gallops (14th April) SIS MAIDEN STAKES (CLASS 5) (3yo)

A Maiden Stakes over 1 mile on heavy going. Quite an interesting horse going here for Alan Swinbank racing in the familiar silks of Mrs J Porter. Steccando was fancied to go well on her debut at Redcar just over two weeks ago, making good progress at the finish after experience cost this son of Lawman. This bay gelding cost 35,000eur at the yearling sales and looks the type to improve a good deal for this second start. Considering he handled the heavy ground that day, this test may be in his favour and to the detriment of many. At odds of 10/1 he could well hit the frame. Michael Dods' filly is another three-year-old who may go well at huge odds of 20/1. This stable have claims with many a debutante and Agatas Legacy has place claims.
