Question: conversion of a polynomial in a desired form

Dear Maple useres,

I have a polynomial in the form f(s)/g(s) where f and g are polynomial of order 4 with coefficients in symbolic form. I want to convert it in a form of (s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c)*(s-d)/(s-a1)*(s-b1)*(s-c1)*(s-d1)

When i provide the numic value of  symbolic coefficients, Maple find it easy to factor it in the desired form. Otherwise i get a messy solution in the form of root of... expression. Even with assume command, I see no difference in the result. Is there a way to get the above simple form rather than root of expression?
