4.45 MEYDAN 9 FURLONG GROUP 1 JEBEL HATTA :
14 Runners declared for 9 furlong group one Jebel Hatta on the turf ,this looks competitive group one contest .The three main contenders look to be Vercingetorix ,La Amour De Ma Vie .& Trade Storm .
VERCINGETORIX :Lighly raced South African five year old .Unbeaten in five starts ,including winning group one at Greyville last June .Won 9 furlong handicap on first start at Meydan last time beating Code Of Honour by half lengh, off mark 108 .Looks open to plenty more improvement .
LA AMOUR DE MA VIE :Improving five year old French mare ,winning 3 from 9 starts .Been in good form at Meydan this season, winning group two Balachine Stakes beating the useful filly's Flotilla & Certify .Each-way claims ,though takes on stronger opposition here.
TRADE STORM :Useful hold up performer on his day,has decent record here at Meydan winning twice last season,including the G2 Zabeel Mile .Looked unsuited by slow pace last time ,when finishing strongly in second in this years Zabeel Mile.The return to 9 furlongs should suit .
VERDICT :The unbeaten Vercingetorix looks interesting runner for Mike De Kock,after winning handicap over C&D last time ,though will still need to show more improvement to win this group one race.At top price 5-2 makes little appeal .
TRADE STORM goes well here at Meydan and will be suited returning to this longer trip .Ran as well as could be expected last time,when unsuited by the slow pace.This race should be run at much stronger pace,which will suit this hold up performer.
