As we nudge nearer to World Cup night, we will be blogging on a Thursday our thoughts on the days racing over in the UAE….
With the inclement weather in the UK & many meetings being postponed, it gives us a welcome break….
4.50 Meydan Classic Trial
Last Sunset finished runner-up to Soft Whisper here last month, the form of which has been well and truly boosted after the demolition job of that one in the 1000 Guineas last week. A return to turf should hold no fears as this daughter of Teofilo seems versatile. She hasn’t been missed in the betting, but I’m expecting a big run this evening.
5.25 Dubai Sprint Listed Handicap
Final Song never really threatened back off a break in the group 2 Al Fahidi Fort last time out, but I’ve been wanting this one to return to sprint trips since last season. Connections wanted to persevere with 7/8f after a fair 4th in the 1000 Guineas last June, despite not consistently running to that level again. I get my wish today, so I can’t leave her unbacked. Frankie Dettori gets the leg up and she seems a very good each-way price at the time of writing.
4.15 Firebreak Stakes (Dirt) – Group 3 – 4yo Plus – 1m…
Trancaferro – Alcorano x Anita Querida 4yo Horse.
The Uruguayan horse was last seen winning over 1m 2f in the Clasico Gran Premio De Honor (Dirt) in Uruguay by 2 & 1/2 lengths on October 16th 2020. Had 2 other runs in 2020, finishing runner up on both starts over 1m 3f & 1m 4f. The youngest runner in the field…..
4.50 Classic Trial Condition Stakes – 3yo Only – 7f….
Last Sunset x Dufay 3yo Filly.
Has run 3 times over 7f, twice back in England at Kempton(AW) in 7f Class 5 Novice Stakes, winning once & finishing 2nd under a penalty in the summer.
Made season return in the UAE 1,000 Guineas Trial on the dirt over 7f on January 7th, finishing a 2 & 1/2 length runner up to Soft Whisper, who won the UAE 1,000 Guineas by 8 lengths on January 28th….
That is everything for you today folks… We will see you at the weekend & what a big weekend it is (Weather permitting)….
All the Best – The Arseonlineracing Team
