With an official rating of 84, MUSADDAS should be winning this. A runner-up in a handicap at Kempton last time, Saeed Bin Suroor's charge will likely start a short price. Placed in France last month, Iftikaar has his first start for a new yard and could prove the main danger given the relatively poor form of the remainder. Blue Sonic looks the best of them despite being well beaten when fourth at Hamilton recently.
