Verdict

A leap of faith is required in supporting DUBAI WARRIOR given he was well below his best at Meydan earlier this year. However, in mitigation, the latter of his below-par displays was on turf and, with a sound record on artifical surfaces to call upon, he may well be up to bouncing back starting out for his new yard. Ides of August, low-mileage River Eden and Khartoum head up the dangers.

  1. DUBAI WARRIOR
