Verdict

Azmaam made a promising start at Newmarket but never picked up as expected in the closing stages over 7f at Sandown last time. Al Rayyan showed some improvement when third at Redcar and there should be more to come from him but a chance is taken on BELLAJEU. She never got involved over 6f at Newbury on her debut but the 3000,000gns filly should be seen in a better light over this longer trip. Egmont is related to four winners and is preferred to Newera of the newcomers.
