Verdict

Complicate arrives from Australia having won five times there including a Listed handicap in October so a mark of 106 doesn't look harsh though along with stablemate Free Wheeling he isn't well drawn. Anaerobio ran well at last year's Carnival though he didn't show his best until landing a very strong handicap on his final start in February when ACROSS THE RHINE was around 4l behind but is now 7lb better off. The latter was behind the race-fit Nawwaar in a Listed contest at Abu Dhabi a month ago but was staying on at the finish and can reverse the form and take this. The Gold Cheongsam has his first start here but looks well enough treated and Jeremy Noseda will have him spot-on but the fly in the ointment could be Roi De Vitesse, who had some smart performers behind when landing a local Group race at Doha in February.
