Verdict

AFKAR just failed to open his account on his debut over 7f at Newmarket a fortnight and is just preferred to Dream Achieved, who finished third over 1m2f at the same fixture. Clive Brittain's charge gets a tentative vote up against some well-bred newcomers that include New Hampshire. The latter cost 170,000 dollars as a yearling and is half-brother to six winners in America, while Llewellyn is related to seven winners including the useful pair Boston Lodge and Border Patrol. Thistle Bird and Poyle Todream are others to note, and an entry in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes at Ascot later in the year suggests Naasef is held in high regard.
