Yarmouth: Alflaila

Mightily impressive on debut after slow start. Showed tremendous turn of foot to cover final 3f more than half a second quicker than anything else in race.

Alflaila carries a penalty for his win at Salisbury but it was certainly worth the extra 6lbs. After a slow start he powered through the field with the fastest closing sectional by 0.52s. What was a reasonable time figure gets a considerable upgrade and marks him out as potentially smart.

The runner-up won a Listed race at the weekend to frank the form whilst it’s fair to expect Alflaila to improve for a debut run. I suspect he’ll go off at odds-on and win.
