Verdict

It might be worth giving TERDAAD anther chance despite a disappointing debut as if this well-related type is to fulfil ambitions for group success later in the year he has to be beating this lot and the yard's runners do usually improve from their first outing. Salaamie has plenty of speed in his pedigree but should be suited by this trip and his entry in a valuable sales race later in the season suggests that connections hold high hopes. Flodden is the bench mark rated at 76 after he was well held by some above average types on his third run last time buthe has a clear chance on that. This may throw up a few winners starting with Terdaad.
