Trainer Charlie Appleby has a seemingly strong hand in his bid to win the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan for the third time on Saturday.
Appleby will field three runners, headed by 2/1 shot Man Of Promise, with Creative Force also a strong contender at 11/2 to make his first start in Dubai a winning one.
The five-year-old Man Of Promise, who is the mount of William Buick, is unbeaten in two starts at the Dubai Carnival this year, most recently when landing the Group 3 Nad El Sheba on Super Saturday in emphatic fashion.
He is joined in the 16-runner line-up by Creative Force (James Doyle), who is already a Group 1 winner, having landed the British Champion Sprint at Ascot last October.
Appleby also fields Naval Crown (Frankie Dettori), an 8/1 chance, in a race he last won with Blue Point in 2019.
The Godolphin handler said: "Man Of Promise breezed this morning and we were delighted with what we saw from him. The key thing is to get him freshened up after that last run - he does go into these races better fresh.
"If he turns up how we think, in the condition he was in on Super Saturday, he's the horse to beat."
Appleby continued: "Creative Force travelled over well ten days ago and we worked him on Saturday. We were very happy with what we saw.
"His European campaign is hopefully set for him and it's hard to say that he’s playing second fiddle behind Man Of Promise, because at the end of the day Man Of Promise has done what he's achieved, but Creative Force is a multiple Group winner and a Group 1 winner.
"Naval Crown is more of a fact-finding mission as to how we pitch him through the summer."
