Ahzeemah went close at Wolverhampton last time and makes more appeal than the other Godolphin runner Curzon Line, while Oblitereight showed enough when second at Kempton in August to suggest he'll be winning soon. However, a chance is taken on the newcomer TAZWEED, as his half-sister and stablemate Jaaryah scored over today's trip on Polytrack at the first time of asking. Silver Marizah has claims on her earlier debut run over C&D and it will be no surprise if Garzoni finishes a lot closer this time after a poor introduction.
