Verdict

HIGHLAND REEL was a little disappointing on his comeback run in Dubai but the ground went against him a little that day and he's likely to be seen in a better light here. Journey couldn't have been much more impressive last season and she should get a decent pace to aim at; she may not be done improving just yet. Prize Money looks like an interesting each-way option if the rain stays away.
