2.40pm DUBAL EXCELLENCE TROPHY (Handicap) (Turf) (3yo+ 100-110)
ATHOUG .Looked immense before scoring on his dubai debut .Very well presented and he acted on his looks by winning a 5f sprint a tad cosily. It took a few strides for the message to drop with this runner but on the line he was very much in control and full of running. It ill take a very smart animal or a poor performance from him to see anything else winning.
