But there's an Irish challenger who has eyes on the prize: I am Superman, from Michael O'Callaghan's yard, is reputed to be in top form and itching to have a crack at this. Helping him in his quest will be Colin Keane and in the UK they are on 5/1.
The Godolphin top two are Master of the Seas on 11/10 with Will Buick on board and Modern News under James Doyle on 3/1.
The Zabeel Mile is G2 and before that we have the Listed UAE 1000 Guineas with 7 3yo fillies competing. Mimi Kokushi won the trial for this and the bin Ghadayer runner will be in the hands of Mickael Barzalona – she's by City of Light and has a UK quote of 11/8. Also in the mix are Asawer, a Cairo Prince filly with Doug Watson and Sam Hitchcott has the ride. Unjokable is on 4/1 from the bin Harmash stable with Ray Dawson in the irons – she's by Practical Joker.
