Verdict

Paul Hanagan has chosen the returning Shaishee ahead of the racefit Moortahan, third at Kempton last month. Charlie Hills' colt looks likely to go well on that evidence but Mac's Superstar had the superior form last year. The latter was beaten only a head at Kempton in November and the winner subsequently won a handicap. HANZADA also went close in both outings last term including a third to Shuruq in October. The latter went on to win the UAE Oaks in Dubai and Ed Dunop's filly gets the nod on her return. Living Desert looks best of the rest on his fifth in Listed company back in July.
