It won't be too often that Godolphin aim two at a Gosforth Park maiden and with jockey bookings suggesting that SUGARCRAFT is the pick, we'll take her to make a winning debut. Purchased for almost $1m as a yearling, great things were clearly anticipated of her, so victory tonight should secure her a chance as a broodmare prospect. Nevertheless, the apparent second-string, Zibelina shouldn't be dismissed out of hand as she is a half-sister to a winner over 10 furlongs. Of those to have faced the starter, Rufoof sets the benchmark. Charlie Hills' filly finished close up in a hot maiden at Newbury on debut though she was a little disappointing at Salisbury next time out. Thorntoun Lady wasn't a cheap purchase at the sales by any stretch of the imagination and Jim Goldie's newcomer could well reach the frame if any of the big guns misfire.
