Global City won twice here in February 2010 but hasn't won since though he's dropped in the weights accordingly. Hitchens, who was in brilliant form here last year, has yet to find his feet this season but is well drawn and has to go on the shortlist. However, along with Govinda and Es Que Love he was behind DUBAWI SOUND in the Group 3 Al Shindagha Sprint a fortnight ago and with no particular reason for a reversal of the form it's David Brown's charge who can land the spoils. The Reaper was in fine form at this time a year ago and he'll be better for his recent run after a very long break so should be kept on the right side despite a big weight. Whaileyy had been in fine form on Polytrack before heading here but unshipped Martin Harley at the start on his intended debut last month. Faridat invariably competes at the highest level over longer trips on Dirt in Japan. He's up to winning this if he takes to the surface but may do better when tackling further. Justineo showed good pace over 7f last time on Turf and if taking to Tapeta looks well enough handicapped to get involved.
