Verdict

This is a minor meeting, mainly for local horses with all races on Tapeta. Respect Me never got into the action at Abu Dhabi last week, his first start since finishing runner-up to subsequent Listed winner Astonishing at Kempton last summer. Sooth Al Ssalam finished a long way in front of him at Abu Dhabi but has looked better over further than this. Istikshaf was a costly failure in the UK and finished a long way last on his debut here in January. His former stablemate Mountain Lion looks more reliable having shown plenty of pace on his opening run here but Tahadee hasn't taken to the surface and Year Of Glory, though running quite well, has a poor draw to overcome. MURASIL started favourite for a maiden over 1m3f on his reappearance but weakened late after holding every chance. Today's trip can enable him to gain his first success.
