Verdict

Australian sprinters haven't always produced the goods on this Tapeta surface so Bello, though obviously a useful performer in his native country, may just take a while to get used to it. Complicate had a similar level of form in Australia and he needed the run on his debut here last month where he faded over the 7f trip. United Color was given a superb ride by James Doyle to capture a Listed sprint over the track and trip a month ago when Russian Soul was a neck behind, Rafeej close up in third, BALMONT MAST just behind in fourth followed closely by Krypton Factor. That was run in a slow time and any of the beaten horses could reverse the form so Edward Lynam's raider, who needed a much stronger pace, is handed the vote. Jamesie bounced back to form in what looked a tough handicap but faces better opposition so Tamaathul, a close fourth in the Golden Shaheen on World Cup night when just behind the selection and Krypton Factor, looks more of a threat.
