Verdict

Kieren Fallon built up a brilliant partnership last year with KRYPTON FACTOR culminating in a superb victory in the Group 1 Golden Shaheen. He'd won this trial on his previous start and it's all systems go for a repeat after a very promising reappearance after a long absence three weeks ago. Hitchens had a verdict over the selection early last year before finishing runner-up in this. He hasn't been in the same kind of form this campaign and Time Prisoner looks more of a threat. The Godolphin grey has done most of his recent winning over 7f but is equally at home over this sprint trip and arrives in very good heart after a smooth success on Turf in January. Reynaldothewizard has been given a break since landing a conditions race in January and his form last year bears up to close scrutiny.
