Verdict

Mizzou cost 275,000gns and made a very promising start in a Haydock maiden when not knocked about having missed the break and run green. By Galileo, he should have plenty more to offer but NANCY FROM NAIROBI sets a very decent standard. Mick Channon's filly was out of her depth in the Ribblesdale at Ascot last time but had earlier finished a five-length fourth in the Musidora at York and that form should be good enough for an ordinary maiden. Mawaseel has hinted at ability but Pas De Cheval possibly has more scope, though the fitting of a visor after only one outing is a bit of a worry.
