FLASHLIGHT hasn't been seen since runner-up to Mar Mar at Doncaster in November and that's comfortably the best form on offer as the winner wasn't beaten far in a Listed contest at Meydan recently. Mark Johnston's colt should prove too good for these with the ex-Irish Time To Begin, runner-up over 7f at Dundalk in October before finding a mile too far next time, taken to follow him home on his first start for new connections. Loulou Vuitton showed very good pace over the track and trip last time and may do best of the remainder.
