    Verdict

    REYNALDOTHEWIZARD won this for the third time when coming with a strong late run to catch Muarrab a year ago. Now twelve, he had his greatest day when landing the Golden Shaheen in 2013 but was returning from a long break a year ago and can repeat the process. The runner-up had won the Shaheen in 2016 and looked a certainly in this last year when clear in the straight but was reeled in by his great rival, who had beaten him even further in 2015. He returned with an impressive victory over Comicas and My Catch last month but the placed horses will be sharper for the outing and the runner-up's second to Mind Your Biscuits in last year's Shaheen was an outstanding effort. My Catch had beaten the winner comfortably just over a year ago so is no forlorn hope.
