The first of four races on the turf can go to KHAZIUM. He caught the eye staying on strongly after a slow start over 6f at Windsor on his debut and, with this extra furlong sure to suit, Pat Eddery's charge is taken to hold off the attentions of the filly Red Mischief. Placed on all three starts, she should go close again on today's terms while Purple Affair and Fire Ship are likely to improve on their recent debut efforts. Newcomer Cool Fantasy looks nothing special on breeding, however, and may be best watched.
