A chance is taken that AMRALAH acts in the soft ground. He's not raced since a debut fifth behind subsequent Mill Reef winner Moohaajim at Ascot in July but should come out best in this if he's improved since. Cousin Melchior ran well enough on his introduction on the Polytrack considering he was unfancied and makes more appeal than Snowy Dawn and Fehaydi but Prairie Prince and Putra Eton can only improve on their poor debut efforts. The newcomers make little appeal though Hasaad may prove best of them.
