Military Attack came to win this a year ago after a victory in the Audemars Piguet at Sha Tin. This time he was beaten in Hong Kong but it was no disgrace against the top-class Designs On Rome. He had Dan Ecxel 3l behind a year ago and has beaten him regularly at home while Mull Of Killough finished fifth last year having previously won the same Group 3 that he landed at Newmarket last month. Japan raider TOKEI HALO had Military Attack and Side Glance behind when runner-up in the Hong Kong Cup and is taken to confirm the form and land this. He hasn't performed to expectations in Dubai but is a top-class performer on this sort of ground and looks up to the task. Wild Geese had Johnny Guitar just behind in a local Group 2 last month but that doesn't look quite good enough against genuine Group 1 performers.
