Gang Warfare progressed considerably from his first run when runner-up at Ripon earlier this month when apparently unfancied. He's more than good enough to pick up a small maiden on that evidence which could well be here in such an ordinary affair. However, Saeed Bin Suroor has enjoyed a good strike rate here over the past five years and his Sakhee colt, TABJEEL, is taken to make a winning debut for Godolphin. Betty Bere showed ability first time up when beaten less than five lengths in a Polytrack maiden at Kempton and could well take a hand with that experience under her belt.
