Ger Lyons is looking forward to saddling The Reaper in the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire Handicap at Meydan.

The five-year-old was last seen winning at Dundalk in August and enjoyed a fine campaign at Meydan last year, but Lyons feels his charge is not yet at peak fitness.

"He's in great form, but I'd be gob-smacked if he doesn't come on for the run," said Lyons.

"He seemed happy this morning and he'll love the turf.

"I've done as much work as I can with him and it's time for him to have a race now.

"This time last year he was rated 100 and he's 110 now, so he has to give weight away tomorrow.

"Hopefully he'll keep progressing through the Carnival and can end up in some of the better races."
