Verdict

FAMOUS NAME has won this for the past two years and can make it a hat-trick. Dermot Weld's charge is much better than Listed level and won two Group 3's and was placed twice at the highest level after last year's success. He'll be ready for this but will need to be as those who witnessed the Irish Lincolnshire victory of Sharestan will be well awate that he's ready to step into pattern race company. He'll definitely find any fitness flaws in the selection and looks a major threat. Hujaylea had ben in action at Meydan before a fair run in the Lincolnshire and has a bit to find with the winner. Elusive Ridge again ran well in a strong handicap at Dundalk on Friday and could snatch a place while in such good heart.
