Verdict

SAQQARA KING was beaten less than a length when fourth at Doncaster on his debut and Charlie Appleby’s colt may prove good enough with normal progress ahead of the other Godolphin runner Mass Media. The latter finished well ahead of Selsey Sizzler when only fifth at Yarmouth but is another likely improver and preferred to Arthur's Court. Moolhim is a €240,000 purchase and first foal of a winner in France while Dulas is a brother to a Listed winner and both make more appeal than Game Over of the newcomers.
