A wide-open handicap with last-time-out winners Cachao and particularly the lightly raced Igloo of obvious interest, but PICTOGRAPH ran well when runner-up over C&D on his penultimate start and a repeat could well see him double his tally.[John Acton]

No win since taking a US turf maiden in early 2015; four runs for new yard this term over a variety of trips and yet to make a serious impact; the dropping mark is not enough to entice.

Sole win a turf maiden in 2015; well held both starts this season but is effective on dirt, having finished a close fourth of 15 at Al Ain last March and now 5lb lower; wide draw not ideal though.

Now 5lb lower than when scraping home over C&D last February; shown little since, though, and needs to stage a big revival.

Fourth in Meydan maiden on debut in November 2016 but hasn't progressed; 20-1, beaten nearly 8l on handicap debut over 7f here last month; needs to raise his game now moving up in trip
