Jeremy Noseda won last year's renewal and Talwar is not without a chance back on the Polytrack though he's been out of sorts of late. The same goes for C&D winner Nazreef who was well beaten here last time but I Love Me could get involved on her all-weather debut. Frankie rode Counterglow to success at Meydan back in March but prefers Masteroftherolls here despite the latter returning from a lay-off and PRIMAEVAL makes more appeal. He was returning from over two months off the track when sixth at Ascot last time and saves his best for this track as when scoring here in March. Pearl Mix showed plenty of ability last year and the course winner is worth a second glance on her belated reappearance.
