Paul Hanagan has already been amongst the winners in the Emirates and has picked up a decent ride on Maali, though his mount has had four unsuccessful runs here and at Abu Dhabi already this winter. He's undoubtedly become disappointing but won't get many better opportunities. He was trained by Clive Brittain in the UK, as was Hazaz, who is making his debut here. The latter was placed at Group 3 and Listed level and looks sure to win races though he might just need the run. Both are trained by Ali Al Raihe, who is also responsible for BLUE SEA. A lightly raced performer in France, he made a fair debut behind the useful Surfer here last month and with today's longer trip sure to suit looks the one to be on. Journalistic ran a tremendous race over a trip much too short on his debut here a fortnight ago and should get involved while Queen Of Alba looks best of the remainder.
