In depth

Verdict

EL NAJMM finished behind a couple of subsequent winners when third at Chepstow on his introduction. That looks stronger form than Ehtifaal's debut fourth at Newbury and Roger Varian's colt gets the nod. The newcomer Mountain Fighter is a half-brother to a Listed winner and could prove best of the Godolphin trio while Year Of Glory may well improve past the more-exposed Rogue Wave having finished fourth over track and trip last month. Beyond Smart is related to winners and is another newcomer to keep an eye on in the betting.
