EMKANAAT cost 160,000gns and has bags of speed on his dam's side. Roger Varian looks to have found him a good opportunity on his belated racecourse debut. Eshoog found one too good again at Nottingham last time and the less exposed Amazing Win could prove a bigger threat. Howyadoingnotsobad disappointed on the Polytrack after a promising debut at Bath and Hollie also posted a poor effort last time on the back of decent sixth at Windsor on her first start. The newcomer Darsan is related to four winners and is another to note.
