Verdict

Former Saeed Bin Suroor inmate MAGHFOOR is yet to win for current connections but has run well a couple of times this season. The fitting of blinkers could suit a horse who hasn't always looked the easiest to ride in a finish and he gets the nod here. Top-weight Maifalki has won twice this season already so merits maximum respect but this trip is further than he has previously won over. Medalla De Oro ran well last time out at Yarmouth and should be in the shake up once again.
  1. Maghfoor
