      Verdict

      Excelled was a 20/1 chance on debut and sported headgear but that didn’t stop her making a winning start, though the form looks nothing special. Swindler was only beaten a nose at Windsor and receives weight, though the form of his introduction has also taken a few knocks since. Mubakker, who carries the colours successful last year, has a smart US Dirt pedigree and cost $500,000 so it would be no surprise if the grey son of Speightstown got off the mark at the first time of asking but DUBAI OPERA is a sister to Godolphin’s Group 3 winner Lockwood so also likely to attract plenty of interest and she gets the vote.
