Verdict

Famous Poet should have won a Shergar Cup handicap at Ascot but for his jockey mistaking the winning post. The winner was well beaten here on Thursday but Saeed Bin Suroor's lightly-raced charge looks certain to go well. Canwinn is a real standing dish around here and generally consistent though his best runs have been on Tapeta. DREAM TUNE, runner-up in the Buckingham Palace Handicap at Royal Ascot, was having his first start for champion UAE handler Ernst Oertel at Jebel Ali last week and that will have put him spot-on for this so he's handed the vote. Antinori has done very well since returning to action though another furlong wouldn't go amiss but Oasis Dancer has produced his best form at Jebel Ali. Georgetown won a minor contest in France for Andre Fabre and begins his career here on what could prove to be a lenient mark while Specific Gravity had a nice run around last week and has the quality to make his presence felt.
