Verdict

Alpha Tauri left previous form behind when making all over 7f on his Fibresand debut. Apprentice Nora Looby negates his penalty and he looks likely to make another bold bid from the front dropping back in trip. Thoughtsofstardom has also adopted front-running tactics of late and went close over C&D on his penultimate start, but Residency remains a maiden after finding one too good here last time. DECIDER wasn't disgraced on his recent comeback at Lingfield and, with that run under his belt, he gets the vote to take this opener.
