Herman Brown, trainer of Bronze Cannon

"We hope he is a world cup night horse and we probably need to get a win with him at the carnival to beinvited for the Sheema Classic. He ran well on the Tapeta last time - it was a chance to get him used to the lights and that surface.

Roger Teal, trainer of Steele Tango

"We are incredibly excited about Steele Tango's first trip to Dubai. The snow in the UK may have meant we got one less serious bit of work into him than we would have liked, but we have big hopes for him.

"He arrived safely and is looking fantastic ahead of the 2011 campaign. His win in the Darley Stakes in 2009 and second in the Cambridgeshire proved to us that we should be aiming for the bigger races with him. I'm confident in Steele Tango's ability and if we weren't aiming for races which are in his class then I would be doing him a disloyalty."
