Verdict

KIldare handler Michael Halford is already on the scoresheet at the Carnival so the fact that the tough and consistent Eastern Rules is returning after a break shouldn't prove a problem. Mufarrh didn't run at all badly behind Shuruq at the beginning of the month and his three all-weather victories have come on this track. Tamarkuz has won three times on Polytrack though he'll need to step up a gear but Mike De Kock's ZAHEE looks the one to be on as he was placed in stronger company than this at last year's Carnival after victories in Australia. The Gold Cheongsam had a pipe-opener three weeks ago but his overall form just leaves him something to find.
