Verdict

Empoli produced a tremendous performance to run Meandre close in a German Group 1 in September though he was disqualified for causing interference. TASADAY, runner-up in the Prix De L'Opera at Longchamp, should be better for her recent run behind Mujaarib though she has plenty of ground to make up. However, her placed efforts at the highest level in France suggests she should be up to this. The winner won't go down without a fight nor will fourth-placed Dastarhon, who was going on strongly at the finish. Quick Wit has been a great servant to Saeed Bin Suroor and had Burano behind when scoring over the course and distance last March.
