RYE HOUSE worked encouragingly in a four-horse group that Sir Michael Stoute took to the Al Bahathri Polytrack this morning.
The Dansili five-year-old has not been seen since landing an on-course gamble in a Class 3 handicap at York last May.
He has had his issues and is bred to enjoy a little cut in the ground, and underfoot conditions will determine to a large extent where he appears.
Accompanying him were FESTIVAL THEATRE, GOTHIC and ALMUHEET.
The latter is an interesting prospect, also by Dansili.
He showed tremendous track work to score on his debut on the July course but in his other two-year-old start at Leicester proved disappointing.
It is possible that race came too soon after Newmarket and the-then diminutive ALMUHEET has developed physically through the winter months.
SHAMA'S SONG is a lovely scoped filly by former champion juvenile Teofilo.
She showed promise on her Lingfield debut last year without being knocked about.
She looked in good heart coming up the strip with TIME SIGNAL in some unexacting bridle work.
TELESCOPE (Ryan Moore) was given some strong work ahead of the Gordon Richards Stakes at Sandown.
Moore got down into the drive position to ensure he went three-quarters of a length up on RUSSIAN REALM.
The former Derby favourite looks like being one of the Stoute standard-bearers this summer.
ALEX VINO has done well since a satisfactory comeback at Leicester and looked in good heart in his stretch with GOOD VALUE.
