Verdict

Daddy Long Legs has gone backwards so Master Plan, a Group 3 winner at Greyville in July, looks best of the Mike De Kock duo. Chapter Seven was conceding a stone to Haafaguinea when narrowly beaten at Newbury in September so on these terms should have few problems reversing the form with that rival. However, finishing a close fourth that day was SAXO JACK, who has changed stables and is now with Saeed Bin Suroor. He showed very good speed on his reappearance here before blowing up and can get back on the winning trail. Aussie Reigns is a very smart and consistent handicapper who was having his first start in Dubai when just failing to catch Sheikhzayedroad a fortnight ago. The consistent Busker was given a lovely ride to land a very slowly-run affair three weeks ago though there's more likely to be a faster pace here but Jawhar did well to score over a mile as he's better over today's trip and should go well.
