Meydan Super Saturday Preview. (10/03/2018)

Saturday 10th March 2018


It’s Super Saturday over at Meydan the meeting that’s seen as the last big build up before World Cup Day itself. There’s a whole host of top drawer flat action in store with several Group races on the card. Here are my fancies….

12.00 – Masar (4/6) (Jockey: W Buick – Trainer: C Appleby)

(Smart performer on the turf and has ran well in big contests all around the world last term. Not dirt bred and connections have options for big engagements which gives the impression he’s been working well on this surface.)


12.35 – Comicas (6/4) (Jockey: W Buick – Trainer: C Appleby)

(Winner of a carnival handicap and often turns out around here. Finished a big priced second in the Shaheen last year a Group 1 contest. Looks sure to give a bold showing again here.)


1.10 – Ertijaal (4/5) (Jockey: J Crowley – Trainer: A Al Rayhi)

(Outstanding performer over here and one of the fastest horses in the world. Won’t be straight forward here but should go very close again.)


1.45 – Kimbear (9/2) (Jockey: P J Dobbs – Trainer: D Watson)

(Has been slightly disappointing when being beaten at short odds the last two times following impressive debut win. However a lot better drawn than the odds on fav Heavy Metal here and that might just be a big factor.)



2.20 – Benbatl (6/4) (Jockey: O Murphy – Trainer: S bin Suroor)

(Wide draw isn’t ideal but is the form and class horse in the race. His class should see him through here and another big showing looks imminent.)


2.55 – Furia Cruzada (16/1) (E/W) (Jockey: A Fresu – Trainer: E Charpy)

(Was third in this last year and has a handy draw today. Close second in a Group 2 contest the last day and might sneak into the frame at a big price.)


3.30 – Promising Run (11/4) (Jockey: P Cosgrave – Trainer: S bin Suroor)

(Classy performer and was only beaten a length by Gold Town when conceding a lot of weight. Widest draw to contend with here but a class act that’s likely to give another big run.)


NAP: Masar – 12.00

NB: Promising Run – 3.30
