Khawaater is likely to start a short price for this but has already been beaten four times and doesn't appear to be improving. There may be better value in taking a chance on newcomer RICTRUDE. She's by Zamindar and though he's better known for getting middle-distance types he has sired the odd sprinter. None of the others have shown a great deal so far but Escrick is probably capable of better.
