Verdict

Sagramor proved a progressive juvenile and should appreciate his first try over a mile. Whaileyy, on the other hand, rather lost his way after winning at Yarmouth last July and has a little to prove on his reappearance. Mr Perceptive won at Sandown in August and Ektibaas got off the mark when landing the odds at Beverley last month. He's got a lot more scope than Dunhoy, Prophet In Dream and Cheylesmore. TASFEYA may be worth another chance, however, after finding Biaraafa and Majestic Dream too strong at Yarmouth. Mark Johnston's colt had plenty of use made of him that day and could do better if ridden with more restraint over this extra furlong.
