Verdict

Ascot winner Aljamaaheer picked up the Group 2 Summer Mile in July but drops back to sprinting on his return. TROPICS has a bit to find with the latter at the weights but has a recent outing under his belt. The latter developed into a useful sprinter last season, winning five races culminating with a victory in the Bengough Stakes at Ascot in October. Dean Ivory's charge gets the vote to reverse latest running with Dinkum Diamond at Doncaster back on fast ground. Course and distance winner Hamza is usually at his best at this time of year and raced at Meydan last month along with Racy. The former is also preferred to Hitchens and Es Que Love while Heaven's Guest finished well behind Dinkum Diamond on his reappearance, though he won a decent handicap on the July course here last summer.
