Verdict

Saeed bin Suroor has an excellent record in this race so his improving handicapper Dubai Horizon has to be taken seriously, although he faces a different calibre of opponent than he is used to. Heading the list is the veteran AIR PILOT, who excels when the mud is flying and proved he is no back number with Group victories in France in the spring. Aspetar had his limitations exposed in the Prix Hocquart but remains a colt of considerable potential, and Morando also has the class to get involved.

Verdict

The manner of his victory in a strong Sandown handicap last time suggests that DUBAI HORIZON may take this step up in class in his stride. Indeed, that was a smart performance and he is taken to complete the hat-trick. Morando sets the standard on form such as his effort in a Sandown Group 3 during the spring and Andrew Balding's charge is the clear main danger. Gabrial should also be in the mix.
