City looking to turn on the style
Godolphin will be looking for a change of luck when City Style contests the Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji on Sunday.
Sheikh Mohammed's operation endured a tough week at York with Derby hope Mandaean and Group One winner Be Fabulous both running poorly on their debuts for Mahmood Al Zarooni.
Andrea Mascolo, travelling head lad for Al Zarooni, said: "He now knows he's going to run. After his first workout yesterday he moved very well this morning. He was concentrating, had his head right instead of pulling, looking up, then pulling again. He had his head down and got on with what he was meant to be doing."
He added: "We'll give him a little canter in the morning just to wake him up. He can have a trot first and then a couple of furlongs steady hack just to get the blood going without raising too much of a sweat."
Zazou is the favourite having finished fifth in the World Cup to Monterosso for German trainer Waldemar Hickst
"He looks very good. I'm very happy with him," said Hickst.
"We are not spoiled in Germany and we have all that we need here. No reason to complain. His condition is the same as in Dubai. He is a seasoned traveller and he seems to have travelled very well again."
The Krisflyer International Sprint sees impressive Golden Shaheen winner Krypton Factor and Kieren Fallon return to action.
"We just walked and trotted him this morning and took him to the paddock to familiarise him with that," said trainer Fawzi Nass.
Asked about reverting to a turf surface for Sunday's race after running on the Tapeta track in Dubai, the Bahrain handler said: "I don't think it makes any difference to him. His improvement has come from the fact that he's a year older, stronger and more mature."
