Verdict

AFRAAH was in contention until the last furlong over 1m2f at Goodwood last time and she gets the nod dropping back down in trip. Dangers abound, however, as Honour will have come on for her modest debut at Kempton and wears her owner's first colours ahead of Capacious. King's Guest is another likely improver on his debut fourth at Lingfield and Shawka should finish closer than her latest sixth at Sandown. The newcomer Queen Of Skies is a half-sister to a Listed winner in France and is another to keep an eye on.
