The Sportsman's Verdict
Elarqam didn't quite live up to expectations as a three-year-old but his best run in 2018 came on his seasonal return in the 2000 Guineas. The son of Frankel has had a wind operation over the winter and it would be no surprise to see Mark Johnton's colt run well. Jim Crowley has chosen him over Mustashry, who won two Group 2 events last September but he is vulnerable under a 5lb penalty. FOREST RANGER won this race 12 months ago and he should take plenty of beating once again. The five-year-old was beaten in a Group 3 over C&D in October, but he was carrying a penalty that day and has had the benefit of a run at Meydan last month. First Contact made the frame in the Group 1 Jebel Hatta in Dubai a few weeks ago and he is another who should have a race-fitness edge.
