Verdict

The once-raced Silk Sari may have more scope than Arr' Kid but both look worth opposing here with a couple of nicely-bred newcomers. Statutory is by Derby winner Authorized out of an unraced Zafonic mare but preference is for MANSOREEN. He's a son of Monsun and his dam was a fair performer in Germany. The four-year-old Bollin Bob and Moscow Circus, who returns from a break, are probably best watched on this occasion.
