    Verdict

    A very interesting newcomer here in Taazur and any market move should be noted, however Mullglen has shown enough in two races to warrant the vote here, Amorachy looks the pick of the other three. Tim Easterby's colt showed improvement on the better ground to chase home Able Master at Ripon last time out .He still looked a little bit naive and there could be plenty more to come. Taazur was a relatively cheap purchase for Hamdan Al Maktoum, but does boast a decent enough pedigree which warrants a good look in the betting. Amorachy has shown plenty of ability in a couple of races to date and will find this company a little less taxing. Karl Burke's Eldorado Days is another to watch in the betting, but we much prefer the chances of Mullglen and this one gets our verdict
