SUPERSTA was plunged in at the deep end at Ascot but wasn't entirely disgraced and he'll improve for the experience. He probably has more scope than Anglophile, beaten at odds-on in a three-runner race here on his second start and clearly not one of Godolphin's best juveniles. Master Dancer, Habdab and Opera Fan are others likely to show more for an opening run but newcomer Speedy Rio is probably best watched.
