Verdict

BARBECUE EDDIE has won five times on the all-weather but never beyond 7f. However, he's run well at this trip and can add another victory to his tally as he comfortably landed a lucrative handicap here in March. Montmorency was a length behind in third and as he was receiving 8lb from the selection faces a stiff test here. Fourth-placed Canwinn also looks held but Haatheq has to be the main threat as he competed at a very high level last season including when runner-up to Mendip in a Group 2 in February. He was beaten just over a length by Treble Jig at Jebel Ali in January but the winner is penalised for that Listed race success and though a star at Jebel Ali he's never done as well on this surface.
