Verdict

Ali Rashid Al Raihe has been sweeping all before him in the season so far in Dubai and saddles four here. Japanese rider Kenchi Ikezoe was last seen landing the Grade 1 Grand Prix at Nakayama last month and probably has the pick of the quartet here with STREET ACT, a winner early last month and just run out of it on New Year's Eve. Izaaj ran well over the C&D last year and looks to be returning to form judging by recent runs over shorter trips but Doon Kalal, who returned after a long break to score over a mile here in November, ran so poorly when strongly fancied here two weeks ago that he may be best watched for now. Covert Desire was four lengths behind the selection here last time and is unlikely to turn the tables but Red Eyes will be better for a recent run at Jebel Ali and landed a Newmarket maiden in July.
