Verdict

ALPHA TAURI (NAP) does most of his racing here and the veteran notched up his 12th win on the Fibresand with last month’s victory over a mile. The veteran finished well ahead of a below-par Break The Silence on that occasion and is taken to confirm running in this. The latter is back on a winning mark if rediscovering his best but Maazel’s only success in 29 attempts came back in 2016.
