Verdict

A chance is taken that KAAFEL handles the soft ground as he was beaten by the narrowest of margins at Nottingham last month and that looks good enough form to win an average maiden. Sunnybridge Boy went close on his debut at Doncaster but that was nearly a year ago and he'll be better for the outing while the remainder with experience have shown nothing so far. Mean It is the most interesting of the newcomers as the 200,000 euros purchase is out of a prolific mare and can count the smart Listed winner Livadiya among his winning relatives.
