Mata Hari Blue may not finish too far away in a typically open sprint handicap but the progressive EMIRATESDOTCOM has obvious claims. He's yet to race on ground with any cut but it's conceivable given his breeding that he'll prove effective on an easy surface and land his fourth success in nine starts since joining this yard. It will be interesting to see if there's any market confidence behind Senate Majority on his first run in over a year as the pick of his form reads well enough in the context of this race. Royal Blade has come a long way down the weights and enters calculations having shown a little more last time, Stargazing hasn't got too many miles on the clock whilst Speak The Truth ran well from a similar mark on his only visit to the track.
