Sheikh Mohammed Obaid's daughter of Pivotal was an emphatic winner over course and distance last month and this seemed a logical next step for her on the back of that success.

Roger said: "Sharja Queen has been training nicely. Her handicap win over the same course and distance was very impressive and she deserves a crack at this Listed prize."

Sharja Queen hails from one of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid's most successful bloodlines. Her Listed-place dam is a half-sister to champion Dubawi and Group 2 winner Emirates Queen.
