Verdict

It will be disappointing if OBSTACLE, a staying-on second on his debut over 1m2f at Newmarket, can't find the necessary improvement to get the better of the disappointing Saddaqa. She was beaten seven lengths on the Fibresand last time and isn't getting any better. Saeed bin Suroor also runs the newcomer Great Fighter but Wannabe Your Man is a more interesting debutant being a half-brother to 1m4f winner Wannabe Loved. Summerfree and Jowhara are other first-timers with decent pedigrees while useful hurdler Balder Success and Hassle, second in a handicap over course and distance recently, are the pick of the older horses.
