Verdict

Ramonti Flash has won twice over a mile here but his three runs this year have offered little encouragement. Funon is a consistent enough handicapper at this level and is likely to get into the frame but the once useful handicapper Warsaw is a shadow of his former self though he's dropped to a fair mark if recapturing a modicum of form. Latkhaf has a reasonable record and will have found 5f much too sharp at Jebel Ali last week while Ghaamer could win this if in the same kind of form that saw him take a handicap here in January. It's hard to know what to make of STALACTITE, who showed nothing in three starts for Godolphin last summer but produced a shock victory at Jebel Ali on Friday. There's no reason why he shouldn't improve and is given the nod to follow-up.
