MUNTADAB has’t stood much racing this year for whatever reason and he’s priced on account of his trio of runs in September & October being well below par. However, the yard were quiet then (not overly loud yet, mind you!) and he has had another mini-break which could help him return to some form. The handicapper is giving him every chance off a mark of 99 (last two wins off 102 & 103), he seemed to have no issue with the All-Weather in his younger days and this is the sort of track where his run style is an advantage. Having Ben Curtis on board is another obvious positive and I think he’s overpriced, despite the well-being risks attached.
With blinkers reapplied and a drop in trip being forthcoming, GLOBAL ART may step forward on what he has been doing lately. He wasn’t disgraced on either All-Weather outing in October, the latest when weakening inside the final furlong over 1m 2f here after going for home a long way out. A drop of 2lbs takes him just above his most recent winning mark and he broke his maiden over C&D last year when wearing blinkers for the first time. He looks underrated at 14/1 and if they go a good gallop from the outset, one that he doesn’t get too involved in, he should come home as well as any of the opposition.
