Form & Verdict
Useful 7f AW winner in Britain who won 6f Jebel Ali handicap on last week's UAE/dirt debut, cruising into contention before running on well; had been off for 204 days and is now turned out again quickly, plus he's gone up 8lb, but he looks like making a good dirt horse.

Was useful early in career when a dual 6f-7f winner here; no show at Sharjah on recent return from 384-day absence but had stumbled start; not impossible he suddenly bounces back from handy draw with good jockey up.
