Verdict

MANSURI didn't show much on Polytrack last season but it was a different story on his reappearance at Gowran when he ran a fine race behind Ashtaroth where he was always prominent. He can go one better though Gentry found 1m4f on very heavy going here last month beyond him and this is more his trip. Battle Hymn, who finished just in front of him, was race-fit and isn't expected to confirm the form. Both of the newcomers are related to plenty of winners and the market could prove a good guide to their chances.
