Verdict

Several have travelled up from Newmarket for this maiden and the southern raiders are expected to dominate. Tacitus ran green on the Polytrack in November but still managed to make the frame and there should be more to come this year. Sayed Youmzain has shown some ability while the step up in distance should suit Alphabetique. Taqneen cost £240,000 and is closely related to several useful performers. He isn't highly tried on debut but this trip should bring out the best in SHAMA'S SONG and Sir Michael Stoute's filly is expected to leave an ordinary debut at Lingfield well behind this season.
