Verdict

The front-running ALFAAYZA is a half-sister to five winners and though no world-beater should have enough pace to see these rivals off providing she takes to the surface. She didn't stop when headed by Aertex over 7f at Kempton last time and should gain her first success. Lesha is an obvious threat having made a promising debut over the course and distance, when Master Dan was behind, before finding Kempton too sharp. Excel Best started favourite for his debut at Wolverhampton so someone must believe in him though he never showed after swerving at the start and has been well beaten since.
