Dubai Trainer Satish Seemar has enjoyed a profitable season at Jebel Ali Racecourse this term and he bids to win the track’s final feature race of the season sponsored by Shadwell, with Farrier.
Although it appears to be an open contest Farrier looks to have strong claims having posted an impressive victory at the course where he has done the major part oft of his running this season.
He was runner-up in a Godolphin’s Tha’ir in a strong looking handicap during the Dubai World Cup Carnival on his last start and is taken to win from course speciallist Mutajare from Ali Rashid Al Raihe’s Grandstand Stables.
The six-year-old comes into the race having last contested the final round of the Al Maktoum Challenge (G1) where he finished Dubai World Cup contender Prince Bishop.
On his most recent start at Jebel Ali Mutajare finished a notable second to Intepret, who also lines up on Friday, in the Jebel Ali Stakes
Al Raihe’s Zain Shamardal is also capable of a good run along with Jebel Ali-trained Dormello who is yet to find his best form on the surface.
Rookie trainer Ahmad Bin Harmash has a pair of interesting runners in Topclas and Ennobled Friend and will be hoping to add to his one win at the track this season.
Selvaratnam looks to have leading fancies in the opening two races on the afternoon with Sowaylam in the The Curragh Racecourse – Ireland Handiap and Tesslam in the Abu Dhabi University Handicap.
The veteran trainer has saddled six winners at the track he has overseen since the early 90s and will be looking to end the season on a high note.
Sowaylm is a last outing winner and take advantage of what looks a mediocre field with Shihab and Canary Wharf appearing to be the biggest dangers.
The former has run fairly well in higher rated event while Canary Wharf was fourth behind Ghost Army at the Carnival.
Art Wave looks an interesting option but will be making his fourth consecutive start in the space of two weeks.
1) Sowaylm 1; Shihab 2.
2) Tesslam 1; El Mansour 2.
3) Farrier 1; Mutajare 2.
4) Kanaf 1; Encipher 2.
5) Sullivan Street 1; Year Of Glory 2.
6) Mujaazef 1; Glenleven 2.
Day’s best: Farrier.
