Verdict

REYNALDOTHEWIZARD won this a year ago before completing a brilliant hat-trick in the Golden Shaheen where he had Balmont Mast, Krypton Factor, Tamaathul and United Color following him home. There's no real reason why he shouldn't be as good this time around and can take this as his prep run should be ignored as he got no sort of run. Soft Falling Rain was a champion sprinter in South Africa but Mike De Kock campaigned him over further both here and in the UK last year where amongst his victories were the UAE 2000 Guineas and the Godolphin Mile. It's a surprise to see him dropping back in trip but his trainer must believe he has the necessary speed. Russian Soul was in fine form here a year ago without quite managing a victory but he gradually improved during the summer and has returned in excellent form, having been narrowly beaten by United Color on his reappearance before landing a Group 3 last month.
