Verdict

Ganas defied a poor draw to make all and complete a double two weeks ago from the fast-finishing Kaiss but the runner-up should get much closer on the revised terms. Muraweg, a winner for John Gosden at Lingfield in 2009, has been racing in Bahrain with great success and his trainer has a fine record with similar types on this track. GREEN BERET ran in much stronger company for the whole of last season's Carnival and was rarely disgraced. He's dropped steadily in the weights and with a recent run under his belt looks the one to beat. The once useful Mutheeb ran a bit better at Jebel Ali last time and is now on a fair mark while Dafeef did well for Godolphin in the UK and has more races in him and Happy Dubai is taking a drop in class.
