VERY TALENTED was beaten a length in a valuable maiden race at York last month and a couple of winners have already come out of the race. Saeed bin Suroor's colt makes most appeal of the three Godolpin runners with the remaining pair representing different trainers. Linguistic is a 650,000gns purchase while Sailor's Way is a half-brother to a couple of winners in France. Fashaak is out of a prolific mare and can include the useful Teak among his winning relatives while Mustajeer is another newcomer to note in the betting.
