Zumurudee - Meydan 12:00

Marco Botti's Zumurudee has to prove himself on dirt, though impressed when winning a Wolverhampton maiden by 10 lengths on his latest start and there's plenty of hope about him getting the trip and handling the surface based on pedigree. Fawree looks potentially smart and could be too good, but has been done no favours by the draw, similarly Capezzano but both are still worth plenty of respect for top yards.

Reynaldothewizard - Meydan 12:35

Reynaldothewizard looked virtually as good as ever as an 11-y-o when running down Muarrab on return in the Dubawi Stakes in January, a race he's won the last 3 years and it looks a positive that he's been kept fresh since. The latter won this and the Golden Shaheen last year, meaning he rates the one to beat still despite a wide draw. Cool Cowboy also just finished ahead of him last time and should give another good account.

Folkswood - Meydan 15:30

Folkswood is taking a big leap from handicaps to the highest level, but this is essentially only a Group 1 by name and he impressed enough over C&D last time to suggest he's a big player here despite a wide stall. Roger Charlton's Decorated Knight is improving and still unexposed after just 11 career starts, while Muffri'ha has twice run well against her own sex this Carnival for William Haggas and can do so again.
