  • ATR Verdict

Factory Time numbered Right To Dream among his victims when scoring here earlier in the month, but went on to finish behind Fiscal in the Listed race won by Right To Dream's stablemate Burano last week. Moon Spun has the measure of Colorful Notion on recent evidence and is the pick of the fillies, but the vote goes to COUNTERGLOW. Godolphin's Epsom Derby entry couldn't build on his debut success in the UK last year but proved he handles an artificial surface when third at Kempton most recently.

View ATR Verdict

This won't take much winning and it wouldn't be the biggest surprise were Factory Time to reverse recent form with Fiscal. The selection will appreciate the drop back to 7f and appears to be the only front runner in the line-up. Counterglow comfortably has the most scope for improvement and is a big threat if a gelding operation has ironed out some of his quirks.

  • ATR Verdict

ALKIMOS possibly didn't stay the mile and a half here, but there is still plenty of time for him to reward Godolphin for snapping him up after his Royal Ascot second, and Dettori seemingly prefers him to Sarrsar, Nationalism and Yaa Wayl. Last year's Canadian International runner-up Joshua Tree was behind Alkimos last time but will strip fitter for that Meydan debut. Ottoman Empire had a couple of lengths in hand over Bronze Cannon when third to Spring Of Fame, but both are capable of picking up a race at the Carnival.

View ATR Verdict

Ottoman Empire has looked as good as ever this year whilst shaping as if the drop to this trip will suit and he can get his head back in front at the main expense of Alkimos who remains with potential for this yard. Jardim can also reach the frame in what looks an open contest.

  • ATR Verdict

Soul was successful in Group 2 company Down Under and is interesting on his first start in the Godolphin blue, but race-fitness gives the edge to REGAL PARADE. Dandy Nicholls' dual top-flight winner was never a factor over a mile here at the start of the month, but his previous couple of runs in the desert proved much of the ability remains. Iver Bridge Lad took fourth over 5f on the same card - with Invincible Ash adrift - but is better suited to that minimum trip. Kanaf has acclimatised quickly since leaving Ed Dunlop, and rates an improver.

View ATR Verdict

Kanaf isn't the easiest of rides but he's looked better than ever this season and a reproduction of his recent second behind Happy Dubai should see him on the premises once more. Soul is an interesting new recruit for Saeed bin Suroor and is feared along with Iver Bridge Lad who rarely runs a bad race at this time of year.

  • ATR Verdict

Lincoln fancy Primaeval would be a contender if he makes it off the subs' bench, but Aussie import SCARF offered enough encouragement on his first start in Dubai to suggest this is within his compass. The Comedian has also come from Australia - via Singapore - and wasn't far behind Delegator here. Ip Man is based in Singapore as well, and beat Primaeval on his Meydan debut, but he now has to atone for a lifeless display when a red-hot favourite subsequently.

View ATR Verdict

Primaeval would come right into the reckoning if getting a run (currently first reserve) but as things stand Scarf should take some beating after a promising debut for this yard. He will appreciate this drop in trip and he can get the better of Casual Glimpse, who didn't handle the dirt surface at Jebel Ali last week, and Canwinn, who continues to knock on the door.

Forecast: 3/1 Viscount Nelson, 7/2 Sandagiyr, 6/1 Gingerbread Man, 7/1 Jaasoos, Derbaas, 10/1 Dark Matter, Fanunalter, 14/1 Dux Scholar, 20/1 Rock Jock, 25/1 Ibn Battuta, Always Certain, Laa Rayb (Note: non-runner may affect prices)

  • ATR Verdict

Ex-Ballydoyle inmate VISCOUNT NELSON has to concede weight all round but such was his dominance in swooping to the Al Fahidi Fort spoils, he should be able to prove a class above these opponents. Derbaas, Laa Rayb and Always Certain are held on that evidence, and the one most likely to trouble Mike de Kock's charge is Sandagiyr, who got off to a flyer for Saeed bin Suroor when landing the Group 3 Firebreak Stakes on the same card on which Dark Matter finished an honourable fifth in the UAE 2000 Guineas.

View ATR Verdict

This is arguably weaker than the Group 2 Viscount Nelson won here last time, and although he carries a penalty for that success, this is just his third start for the yard and he can improve enough to defy it. Dux Scholar should build on his recent comeback and can prove a threat along with Jaasoos, who's yet to run a bad race this season.

  • ATR Verdict

Frankie Dettori has opted for the recent winning form of FOX HUNT, who was having his first start since the Melbourne Cup when strolling to a comprehensive victory here, and he could graduate to become a genuine Cups contender during the forthcoming European summer. Stable companion Opinion Poll is already of that standard and goes well at this venue, but has been absent since the stayers' race on Champions' Day at Ascot. Kasbah Bliss turned back the clock to land the Prix Du Cadran when last seen and can never be ruled out with confidence, but needs further, whereas Jakkalberry has stamina to prove.

View ATR Verdict

Opinion Poll and Kasbah Bliss are the class acts, but they are penalised as a result of their victories at a higher level and both could find this trip sharp enough. Fox Hunt is readily preferred having won with more in hand last time and he could develop into a 'Cup' horse this year. Modun is also considered if staying this far.
