Verdict

Road To Dubai concluded his 2017 Turf campaign in the style of a progressive performer, looking one to note in his four-year-old career. He certainly is one to watch with Hayley Turner undertaking her latest return to action in the saddle but he does have an absence to overcome and preference is therefore awarded to the race-fit ABE LINCOLN who has been shrewdly placed by Jeremy Noseda to land both starts in the current all-weather campaign over trips from 7f to 1m2f. He remains open to further improvement and is taken to land the three-timer. The consistent Kreb's Cycle and course and distance winner. Mythical Madness are next best.
