Verdict

AZAGAL has done well to show good speed in both starts over 5f as she's bred for further so this should prove ideal and she's handed the vote. Rosso Corsa stepped up from his debut to produce a better effort at Goodwood and there's more to come while Rizal Park was very green at Newmarket and was never in contention after being impeded. The three newcomers are all worth noting. Handwoven is a half-brother to winning sprinter Elhamri, the Irish challenger Letterfromamerica is out of a winning miler, and Mandy's Choice looks a nice prospect on breeding though probably over further.
