Adaay carried Hamdan Al Maktoum's colours to victory in this last year. The same owner has two entered in the first division of the contest this time around with the £90,000 yearling TAZAAYUD, trained by Marcus Tregoning and a half-brother to three winners, looking the pick of breeding. He is in a couple of valuable sales races later in the season and should be forward enough to make a winning start. Ed Dunlop's Qeyaadah cost 160,000gns as a yearling and is a danger while Richard Hannon runs Nelspruit. The Dansili colt Bluebeard, who is closely related to the speedy Camacho, and Fang, who is by Lawman and half-brother to 6f juvenile winner Growl, are others worth a market check.
