STATEOS made some late headway but never looked like winning on his debut at Newmarket. He'll have come on for the experience, his yard remains in fine form and he's expected to improve past Dickens Rules. The latter showed improved form when third in an ordinary maiden at Warwick last time and should be thereabouts. The newcomers are represented by Zamarelle, a half-sister to four winners including the useful King's County, while Long Lost Love is related to a 7f winner and should also be noted.
