Verdict

ELHAAME was only beaten a nose in a Haydock maiden in September and, though it will probably be a few weeks before Luca Cumani's stable fully hits its stride, his Acclamation gelding will probably be good enough here. Stepping Ahead was beaten just half-a-length in a maiden auction on the Polytrack in November on his racecourse debut and looks the danger unless there is any significant money for newcomers Magic Lando or No Win No Fee as Switch On is likely to be suited by further in time.
