SAHRA AL KHADRA totes topweight and was noted finishing to good effect on the all-weather last time over seven furlongs, suggesting that this longer trip is just what he needs. He was a steadily progressive juvenile, concluding his campaign with a course victory. Yet to tackle the forecast conditions, he is narrowly preferred to Bon Port who improved nicely in three Wolverhampton starts over the winter and stable inmates are renowned for progressing well in their second season. Space Walker has shown promise on the all-weather whilst Mfiftythreedotcom showed much improved form first time back when runner-up at Beverley.
