Motafaawit could be all the rage after running the apparent good thing Legends Of War close at Newbury but exactly what was achieved there in terms of form is open to question. ZOFFEE looks a reasonable alternative, given the promise he showed when staying on from the rear in fetching style at Ffos Las.[Richard Austen]

100,000euros yearling; 12-1, finished strongly from last when close third of nine in novice at Ayr (7f, good) over three weeks ago; while he should improve, it looks as if he's landed in some hot company today.

Brother to a useful 1m-1m2f winner; third in novice events over about 7f on good to firm at Haydock and Ffos Las, running on nicely from rear in the latter and he's firmly in calculations here.

Non runner
Late foal; won four-runner novice event at Leicester (7f) on debut; made 1-4 shot Legends Of War pull out all the stops in three-runner Newbury novice four weeks later, which is probably serious form and makes this Group 2 entry the form pick despite giving weight all round.
