Official ratings suggest J J THE JET PLANE is home and hosed here and the figures make sense. The winner of this at Nad Al Sheba in 2009, he produced easily the best performance of any of these when beating the great local hero Rocket Man in the Grade 1 Hong Kong Sprint and, after a poor first-ever run on Tapeta here, gave lumps of weight and a beating to a decent field over the C&D. War Artist returned to form after a barren spell when beating Rileyskeepingfaith in a handicap last month but was earlier put in his place by Happy Dubai, who has improved dramatically and had Monsieur Joe, Invincible Ash and Prohibit behind over the C&D three weeks ago. Shock Nunthorpe winner Sole Power has his first start since York and looks up against it but the brilliantly-fast Mr Gruff has his first start over today's trip after three 7f victories and leading for most of the way in a Grade 1 event over a mile at Hollywood.
