Verdict

The market will provide some important clues here but IZAAJ is nominated ahead of Ejaab and Radiohead. Godolphin have done well with their limited number of runners this season and Izaaj looks an interesting newcomer. Although he is sure to get further in the future, this well-bred colt may be precocious to score on his debut. Tom Folan is the only horse to have raced and she has shown ability in two starts, with her first run behind Black Baccara at Folkestone working out well. Radiohead was an expensive purchase and he commands respect, as does Footstepsofspring who represents Richard Hannon. His horses seem to be running well and this colt looks a likely newcomer. Ejaab is speedily bred and he is related to several winners at various levels. His dam was a good sprinter and he looks one of the more obvious ones to focus on, however we are going to plump for Izaaj.
