The first race of the afternoon is the Class 2 Handicap over 1m4f and at the prices Global Storm for Charlie Appleby takes the eye.
Around the 13/2, 7/1 to mark at the time of writing this five year old holds some of the strongest form in the field over this sort of distance and with the talented claimer Harry Davies taken a valuable 7lbs off it puts him in the frame.
Last season the gelding came into his own when stepped up in trip winning at Newmarket in May over 1m6f and off the back of that placed in smart races like the Copper Horse handicap at Royal Ascot and the bet365 Trophy at Newmarket.
Slightly disappointing on his last two starts in Britain he was put away and returned in February this year at Meydan and he bounced back with a bang landing a good handicap in Dubai off a mark of 102.
Seen once more since then over the same course and distance at Meydan he was a strong third in the Group Two Dubai City Of Gold.
He now drops back into a handicap off a mark of 106, but with Davies taking 7lb off he effectively races off a mark of 99 which sees him comfortably well in and 3lb below his last winning mark.
Having already had two runs this year he should be primed to go close here.
