Trainer Seth Benzel returns to the Dubai World Cup Carnival a year after he trained Dux Scholar to win from the likes of Russian Soul and Medicean Man who have both won this season, he brings the unexposed Zee Bros who won the Chick Lang Stakes when trained by Bob Baffert last May. The fourth finisher City Of Weston went onto to win the Grade 3 Gallant Bob Stakes.

He made all in that race and with the in form Shane Foley in the saddle similar tactics may be the way to go against the fast finishers including Medicean Man who won last week on the turf, the switch to Tapeta is interesting for the field have failed to win on this surface where Zee Bros won his stakes race on the Pimlico dirt.

Medicean Man is tipped to follow up and there is a shout for outsider Lehaaf trained by in form Mike De Kock who also runs Merhee, And Abu Sidra from France has Group form and also makes his debut for trainer Jean Francois Bernard who has trained horses for many years in the UAE.
