1400m – Dirt


Tour To Paris

French-trained, he closed down last year with a narrow Listed win over 1100m at Maisons-Laffitte. He looked to handle the Meydan dirt surface with a respectable fifth in a G3 here in January.


Al Sahem

A new strategy for Al Sahem whose previous career has been over much further (his last start was over 3200m) and on turf. Has been off the track for a long while and appears hard to fancy.


All Out Blitz

Had some decent form at around this trip in the USA. His Meydan debut was just fair, racing close to the speed before fading in a 1200m handicap here last month.


Midnight Sands

A strong-travelling horse who has now scored four straight wins at Meydan, latterly when reeling in a smart front-runner in a good Carnival handicap (1600m) in January. A rising rating is unlikely to prevent another big run.


Behavioral Bias

Mostly well held since moving from the USA to the UAE though some of those races have been in strong company. He made a threatening forward move out wide in a 1200m handicap here two starts back, fading late on. A tricky ride, but not short of ability.



Has winning form on sand over shorter and further than this in the past but has been very soundly beaten in two handicaps since moving to Meydan.


Ocean Fury

Has won on Santa Anita’s turf surface and was also on the grass for his Meydan debut last month, prominent until fading in that 1600m handicap. Now switching to the dirt but his pedigree doesn’t shout that it will be an advantage.


Master Blaster

This Scandanavian-trained contender didn’t seem fancied on his Meydan debut for a 2000m handicap here last month but wasn’t disgraced. Drops sharply in trip for this next attempt.
