Elleval trained by Dave Marnane was a first time out winner in last seasons Dubai World Cup Carnival so he has to be respected in his first race this season, Feargal Lynch rides so it is possible to it can be a complete repeat.

Although placed many times Elleval has failed to win again and Marnane will hoping his charge likes the Meydan Tapeta track and finds his winning way again.

A likely danger could be the lightly raced Sanshawees trained by Mike De Kock, beaten by half a length in the Cape Derby a Grade 1 he should be good enough to win this last race of the third meeting of the Carnival. Christophe Soumillon rides on what could be a good night for the French jockey.
