Harrison George goes very well here with two course wins to his name, and he can put up the most serious challenge to our selection SIROCCO BREEZE, with City Style also likely to figure. There is a note of caution here given that Saeed Bin Suroor's runners have not been red hot just lately. However, the five-year-old Sirocco Breeze has the best form of this lot on his CV, and although he was well beaten last time it was when tried over 6f. The return to this distance, over which he has been successful four times from six attempts, is much more encouraging, and although unproven on fast ground he should act on it, so he gets the verdict. City Style will relish these conditions and is a very interesting runner, also owned by Godolphin, although trained by new-boy Mahmood Al Zarooni. Provided he is fit enough after a seven-month absence then he is entitled to go close. Harrison George has that course form to his advantage, and he will surely mop up if the other pair misfire, although Al Zarooni's other runner, Marching, also looks set to be battling for a share of the prize money. Sirocco Breeze can put the wind up his opponents.
