Verdict

Elidor was second over an extra furlong at Goodwood earlier this month and shouldn't be far away here. Intermix only found one too good on his debut at Kempton three weeks ago but there will almost certainly be much more to come from SIZZLER following his debut fourth at Windsor, where he missed the break, and he gets the nod in this maiden. Muhtaram wears the all blue of Godolphin and is by Shamardal but the fact that he's already been gelded suggests he has been difficult to get to the racecourse. Marlborough House is probably also best watched on his introduction.
