Verdict

It's difficult to know what to make of Disa Leader, who went from South Africa to Mauritius where he won a Group 1 in July. He has his first start for Mike De Kock who also saddles the Argentine Group 1 winner Anaerobio, who showed little on his debut behind City Style here but is certain to have come on for the run. START RIGHT went off favourite for that latter event and ran well despite looking in need of the race. He'll be better back on turf and looks well enough treated to gain compensation for Frankie followers. Balducci hasn't had much racing and looked an improved performer when scoring at Newmarket for Andrew Balding last July - he could run well at a fair price here. Johnny Murtagh travels to Dubai to ride Dubawi Star, who also looks well enough handicapped to make his presence felt.
