Verdict

Akdam showed signs of ability in her two runs last term but may be undone by a high draw here, a remark that also applies to Regal Concorde. SACRED DRAGON was heavily supported to make a winning debut a month ago but came up against a potentially useful type in Machete Mark. He didn't go down without a fight and should recoup losses, especially as he holds third-placed Super Sling who was over four lengths away. Tooreen Legend, a half-brother to three winners, is one to note as is Mazandaran, who is by Tiger Hill and the first foal of a middle-distance winner.
