Nad Al Sheba: Won by North Americans in the past two years, the Godolphin Mile (G2) is once more shaping up to be a wide-open affair.
The sponsoring team, having landed back-to-back wins in this race with Firebreak in 2003-04, run two strong contenders in Gayego and Two Step Salsa. Both were bought from other US stables last season. Mike de Kock has Lucky Find primed for a big run, while visiting performers like Cat Junior, representing top English trainer Brian Meehan, and Informed, shipped in by the winning trainer two years ago, Doug ONeill, are also likely to make an impact.
