Verdict

Majestic Red wasn't beaten far at Salisbury and Windforpower's saddle slipped at Wolverhampton when he attracted support. Dave Simcock's horses are going well so AL EMIRATI is handed the vote despite a pedigree that suggests another furlong at least will be required in time. Bamurru is the first foal of a mare who won as a three-year-old while Northern Harbour is out of a staying mare. It's Only Business is the second foal of a mare who won over 1m4f so he's another who should be suited by further.
