Verdict

Fulbright progressed from handicaps to land a Group 2 at Newmarket for Mark Johnston and there's every chance he'll improve again. He's now with Godolphin as is Out Of Bounds, a Grade 3 winner on Dirt at Santa Anita when last seen a year ago. Fanunalter was well beaten in this a year ago and is best on soft ground on Turf as he showed when landing the Summer Mile Stakes at Ascot for Michael Wigham while Muraweg didn't look up to this class when trained in the UK, though he ran well here last month after completing a hat-trick in Bahrain. Rutland Boy can be relied on to do his best but he was only just in front of Mufarrh here last month and, as the latter was having his first start since 2011, he can have his revenge. Jamr was a very progressive handicapper here last year and deserves a crack at this level but with fitness and form on his side it's BARBECUE EDDIE who gets the vote after he was brought with a very smooth late run to complete his hat-trick last month.
