Timeform on Dubai Future

Dubai Future - 14:30 Meydan

Dubai Future had plenty in hand when scoring at Kempton back in November and there's every chance he will improve again making his handicap debut. Stablemate Gifts of Gold is an obvious danger after his recent third over this C&D, while Sharpalo could well have a say too if ready to roll after an absence.

Equilateral - 15:40 Meydan

Equilateral has always been highly-regarded and has the raw ability to rate higher than a Timeform figure of 116. Having been gelded he could be set for a good year and his record fresh bodes well for his first go in Dubai. Amomentofmadness wasn't seen to best effect on his return here and demands respect, while there's clearly plenty of life left in C&D winner Caspian Prince.

Dubai Icon - 17:25 Meydan

Dubai Icon is a low-mileage sort who caught the eye when fifth on return over slightly shorter 3 weeks ago. The son of New Approach appears to still be improving and earns the vote from a handy draw in stall 4. Franz Kafka, who arrives on the back of a career-best display, Big Kitten and Above Normal head up the dangers.
