Mahabba ran well in a couple of starts over 1m2f on Turf over the summer. She cost 360,000gns as a yearling as she’s by Galileo out of a multiple Group 3 winner but stamina might be an issue over this trip. The all-blue of Godolphin is a frequent sight in the winner’s enclosure here and MILITARY PARADE can make it third-time lucky as though he, too, may have stamina limitations on breeding, he does have valuable experience of Tapeta. Balashakh and Nurse Nightingale are pretty much exposed but Loud And Clear has won bumpers and been placed in hurdles so could go well if taking to the surface. Magellan has been gelded and is also interesting.
