Verdict

AZRAFF has the form in the book with a third at Leicester on his latest start. Marco Botti's colt gets the nod with further progress expected. Maraakib was well beaten on his debut but still sports his owners first colours ahead of the newcomer Kifaaya while Charlie Appleby's duo, Here Now and Pasticcio, are both related to winners. Robben flopped on his latest start but looks best of the remainder on his earlier effort at Hamilton.
