33/1 Oooooh So Close….

So close to a superb winner at Meydan in Dubai following on from some superb winners at the Carnival there..

This is what we advised our members….

3.40 Meydan:

Dubai Horizon is interesting stepping up in trip having run with a lot of promise over 1m4f on his first run of the carnival behind Universal Order, before finding the step back in trip unsuitable. He has a big pull at the weights from the David Simcock runner on his first try at a trip this far. Mekong makes his debut for Jamie Osbourne having been with Sir Michael Stoute and is a proven classy stayer. He’s perhaps better on slightly softer ground, although the turf at Meydan it reported to have “a cushion” and might also be better over 2 miles, but the stable do really well with their runners here and he does have a pull at the weights with De Ex Bee on Sandown running from last season, when not beaten far. Dubhe was impressive when winning a handicap over 2 miles here last year, but has disappointed on his only run since in Australia and was also better for a reappearance run, so this might just be a prep run for next time. Universal Order was very impressive on his Dubai debut, winning with a fair amount to spare. He was lightly raced in the UK prior to that, so has a certain amount of untapped potential. The step up in trip looks fine, although he has been raised considerably in the handicap. Zamaam is running well but is unlikely to take a step forward at the age of 10, whilst Secret Advisor comes back from a long break and needs to return to his form of a couple of years ago to win this. As with race one, we’re left with the class act of the field in Dee Ex Bee who is a model of consistency at the highest level. He’d prefer slightly further and will probably need to make this a stamina test, he could prove to be simply better than these, even giving away lumps of weight, but his fitness is taken on trust for his new stable.

Conclusion:
De Ex Bee is very much the most likely winner, whilst following a really encouraging reappearance and a big weight pull with Universal Order, Dubai Horizon is the one that appeals of the others. Again just 7 runners which doesn’t help each way punters, but at 33/1 we’ll take a chance the step up in trip will suit for a top 2 finish and perhaps a big price shock.
