Verdict

Successful in a maiden point in March of last year, Prince Kayf has a long absence to overcome as he makes his debut under Rules but his stable remains in fine form. Scottsdale won a novices’ handicap at Stratford a week ago but TOSHIMA has been going well on the Flat since opening his account over timber at Ffos Las and the four-year-old can defy his penalty.
