Verdict

Naqshabban made a successful debut over 1m4f here a year ago and has been raised 6lb. He may not be too inconvenienced by the lack of a recent run but this is tough and his stablemate LAAJOOJ, who had some strong form here last year before scoring at Newmarket in August, looks to have a better chance and is given the nod. Lindenthaler has competed at a high level in Germany and Red Dubawi in France and the latter is taking a drop in class. Wealthy finally came good in a minor race over the C&D in March but Blue Corner found Group 3 company too hot at Leopardstown and this is more his grade. Al Shemali, the shock 2010 Dubai Duty Free winner, hasn't come anywhere near that form since though he did win at Abu Dhabi in March when Anaerobio was behind. The latter ran well over a trip much too short behind Le Drakkar here a week ago and with that under his belt looks a big threat to all.
