Verdict

MOTAFAAWIT has made a nice impression in two starts to date and chased home a potential Group horse of John Gosden's at Newbury and he gave the winner a real fright too. This looks a nice opportunity for him to add a second success. Mark Johnston's Nayef Road was only beaten 1¼L by the selection on their respective debuts so he must be respected now in receipt of 6lb but unlike the selection he didn't show improvement in his second start. Zoffee could prove a big threat and he was notably unlucky in running when third at Ffos Las, the best of him is surely still to come.
