Verdict

Dettori presumably had the pick of the three Godolphin entries in this and has opted to ride Beverley third Rebel Song. But Mahmood Al Zarooni's colt may be worth opposing with Saeed Bin Suroor's newcomer TADMIR. The trainer has snapped up champion Paul Hanagan to partner his $200,000 son of Bernardini, who is a full brother to the very smart US miler Arthur's Tale and is almost certain to know what's required here. Sunley Pride is improving with experience and could also play a part, while Wrotham Heath hinted at ability at Newmarket in August and will know more today and Ben Croy, Kahruman and Thane Of Cawdor are all worth noting for future reference.
