Verdict

It's rare to find one of Mike De Kock's lurking at the bottom of a handicap and Jet Legend, five times a winner in South Africa including at Group 3 level last time, is noted. Trade Storm won a tough York handicap in August before failing to stay 1m2f at Doncaster and has to be on the short-list but it's DON'T CALL ME who is handed the vote. Dandy Nicholls' useful handicapper was in fine form last summer and autumn and made a promising start in Dubai when running on nicely behind Le Drakkar over 7f here two weeks ago. Runner-up Tamaathul has won subsequently so the form looks strong enough for this. The Yorkshire trainer also runs Rex Imperator, but he has never raced beyond 7f and is better known as a sprinter.
