Meydan Preview & Selections. (08/02/2018)

Thursday 8th February 2018

It’s Thursday once again which of course means it’s time to get stuck into another day of Dubai World Cup Carnival action over at Meydan. It’s another day of great racing to look forward too as we edge closer to the World Cup itself. Here are my fancies….


2.30 – Rayya (5/4) (Jockey: P J Dobbs – Trainer: D Watson)

(Was just edged out by a nose the last day here by Winter Lightening. He kept on and battled gamely to the line that day and pedigree suggests a step up in trip should suit. I’ll chance him to serve it up to that rival again.)


3.05 – Montsarrat (4/1) (Jockey: M Barzalona – Trainer: S Ghadayer)

(The 40/1 hero from a few weeks back and I think he’s got a chance to go well again here. He’s got a draw that he should appreciate with his style.)


3.40 – Muarrab (2/1) (Jockey: J Crowley – Trainer: A Al Rayhi)

(Second in the last two running’s of this contest and was second the last day to Comicas. He’s now 0-6 with Crowley which of course is a slight concern but i’m going to chance him to get closer to the favourite here.)


4.15 – Hit The Bid (5/4) (Jockey: O Murphy – Trainer: D Bunyan)

(Was three lenghts in front of Dutch Masterpiece here on last outing. That rival has since gone on to win here. Gave a real talented sort a scare here last time too, should go very close again.)


5.25 – Zaman (11/10) (Jockey: W Buick – Trainer: C Appleby)

(Did well in Britain last year. Trainer won this a couple of years back with Comicas and this one should be making a bold bid here.)


6.05 – Earnshaw (14/1) (E/W) (Jockey: M Barzalona – Trainer: S Ghadayer)

(Hasn’t won in a while but has lots of decent form to his name. Needs to get going a bit quicker but a fair chance to get into the frame here in my opinion.)


NAP: Hit The Bid – 4.15

NB: Muarrab – 3.40
