Windfast sets a very decent standard in this maiden on his second to Green Door at Newmarket. He showed a lot of speed that day, however, and it's not certain that the extra furlong will be in his favour. CONSTANTINE has entries in all the big sales races later this season and is fancied to make a winning debut from an in-form yard, though Windfast's stablemate Mawfoor has also plenty of fancy entries and could be a danger. Godolphin's Brave Boy is another interesting newcomer but his breeding suggests he's going to need further than this.
