Verdict

Ghost Army made all and just held on when tackling 1m3f in a maiden here last month so today's shorter trip should be in his favour. Al Murqab beat subsequent winner She's No Joke at Leopardstown in November and, as the latter in now rated 77 and was receiving 5lb, Doug Watson's charge has to be on the shortlist. Triple Wolverhampton winner Grilletto looked to be on his way back to form at the new racecourse at Al Ain a fortnight ago but Kahruman blotted his copybook with a poor run when fancied at Jebel Ali last Friday. North Pole was a moderate handicapper for Sir Mark Prescott and was well beaten at Jebel Ali in January but ART WAVE has been running well enough at Jebel Ali since arriving from Marco Botti's yard and is handed the vote off a lenient mark.
