J: Adam Kirby
T: Saeed bin Suroor
Without a win since landing a novice race at Brighton (at odds of 1/12) last July. Struggled for form in four starts at Meydan earlier this year, and he now has something to prove on his return to handicap company today.
This looks easier than the races he's been contesting at Meydan this year

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Has recorded progressive RPR’s in his three starts to date; culminating in success in a novice race at Kempton when last seen in October. Now makes his handicap debut, but it is tough to describe this opening mark as anything other than fair.
Steady improvement in 2yo novice events, winning at Kempton the final time

A progressive colt who got off the mark at the third attempt when scoring at Chelmsford in October. Stayed on well there, suggesting that the step up to this trip would suit, and the form of that Chelmsford race has been franked by the third since.
Dubawi colt who progressed with each start last autumn; attractive profile

Last two efforts suggest he may need a return to 7f

Got off the mark at the fifth attempt when scoring in a maiden on the All-Weather in France in December. Held on his handicap debut at Lingfield afterwards, however, and he needs a clear career-best performance to trouble the best of these.
Ran respectably at Lingfield on reappearance but needs to pull out more
