Trainer - Yasuo Tomomichi
Jockey - Oisin Murphy
The first runner in the Group 1 contest is the Japanese raider Cheval Grand who is the most exposed and oldest horse in the field with the seven year old being raced frequently throughout his career in his home country.
He has only raced once this season and he finished a good second in the Dubai Sheema Classic behind Old Persian and at a big price of 33/1 he could run a big race.
He shouldn't have enough to win it but place claims will be the aim especially with Oisin Murphy on board and he will have to be fit after his break off the track.
