Verdict

Al Razi was touched off by DAN CHILLINGWORTH over 7f a month ago before scoring over this trip at Jebel Ali when Hacienda wasn't far behind. The winner has been raised 4lb but is equally at home over the shorter trip and can confirm the places and take this. Count Paris ran poorly over a mile last time but his run behind Dan Chillingworth earlier puts him in the frame. Darwin Award landed a Belmont claimer for Bill Mott in July and begins his Dubai career on a fair mark while Desert Of Dreams, who had little chance in the 2000 Guineas Trial here, ran much better earlier though a bad draw tempers enthusiasm, as it does for the maiden Mutayaser. Kingdom Beauty gets in as reserve and is consistent enough to make her presence felt from her lowly handicap mark.
