Verdict

MURAAD beat a subsequent winner with the rest nowhere when scoring at Wolverhampton. Dane O’Neill prefers his chances to those of Newcastle winner Almashriq, Madeeh and Mutasaamy. The latter pair have undergone wind ops since last in action but Search For Light won in soft going at Haydock on last month’s debut and the third has won since. The latter is preferred to stablemate and newcomer Ghaly while Second Sight will appreciate the shorter trip after debuting over 1m2f at Newcastle. Petite Malle is the first foal of a winning sprinter and Helian makes most appeal of Ed Dunlop’s duo ahead of Global Command.
