Verdict

Those with experience have yet to race on slow ground but Tez has the best form after a debut fourth at Doncaster. Still, the newcomers won't have to be anything special to come out best and a speculative vote goes to ROSTRUM FAREWELL. A half-brother to five winners including smart sprinter and soft-ground winner Elnawin, he could well make a winning debut. Boadicee is also related to a couple of winners and makes more appeal than both Marengo and Biotic.
