medlocke, just like the Derby these trainers for the most part don't want a peak performance before the big day. Godolphin doesn't wan't to overdue it with him, but I do question if Mendip as good at 10 furlongs as 8 furlongs. He should definitely win his race though with division leader Skysurfer skipping this one and training up to the Godolphin Mile.
Even worse than Bold Silvano missing Rd. 3 of the Al Maktoum Challenge. Saeed Bin Suroor entered Mendip in the Burj Nahaar instead. After Mendip romping in Rd. 1 of the Al Maktoum Challenge, and allegedly being pointed for the Dubai World Cup? Don't understand this move by Suroor at all?
