An extremely competitive card for super Saturday at Meydan tomorrow with extensive amounts of prize money up for grabs. With that money comes big fields containing plenty of value!
MEYDAN SPRINT SPONSORED BY ARABIAN ADVENTURES(Group 3) (Turf) (3yo+) 1.45pm
ZEE BROS @20/1 This american raider traveled well for his Meydan debut over 6f finishing 2 and a half lengths behind Medician Man . ZEE BROS will appreciate this drop back to 5f as he appeared to tire late on over 6f the last day after hitting the front just over 1 furlong out. The jockey booking of Frankie Dettori catches the eye and the switch to the straight turf track will pose no problem. Granted he faces some well seasoned sprinters here in Sole Power and Shea Shea but he has the advantage of race fitness which can make all the difference in these short distance sprint races.
MAHAB AL SHIMAAL SPONSORED BY EMIRATES SKYWARDS(Group 3) (Tapeta) (3yo+) 2.25pm
BALMONT MAST @14/1 Was behind the likes of Russian Soul & Jamesie over C&D last time out . He was ridden by William Buick and settled in rear.His rivals stole a few lengths on him around the bend and he seemed to hang slighty off the turn. When the field reached the straight Balmont Mast under hands and heels weaved his was through several runners and switched to the inside doing so. He was constantly closing on the eventual winner Russian Soul but there was alot of promise with that run . Ryan Moore is on board today and odds of 14/1 are without a doubt too good to resist . Big player.
BURJ NAHAAR SPONSORED BY EMIRATES HOLIDAYS (Group 3) (Tapeta) (3yo+) 3.00pm
EASTERN RULES @16/1 each way 1,2,3,4. Before tipping him for his last win I suspected him to be potential group class. He steps up to a Group 3 contest here after two Course wins in Valuable handicaps. I still think he is improving and he should hold his own in a field such as this.He is drawn in 9 which is a slight negative but I can see him coming off a fast pace to pick his rivals off late in the straight.He has a great chance here and can earn his connections another valuable prize.
Good luck if you get involved. Thanks for reading ITJ.
