2015 Dubai Racing Comprehensive: Accepted, expected, or possible Carnival runners

So who is competing at the 2015 Carnival? Exactly? We always wait and see what comes in the entry box before you absolutely know someone is going to appear. Many are invited, but not all take-up their spot in the UAE. The lifetime form for each of these horses is currently available on the Emirates Racing Authority website. Enter a name in the search function and have at it.

What you will not see in the lists below are horses trained by Saeed bin Suroor or Charlie Appleby. As has been the case for years, horses racing under the Godolphin banner typically do not appear on the ERA site until they are in the initial entries for a race. Much conjecture in the UAE, however, suggests that the overall number of Godolphin horses in Dubai for this season are down from previous Carnivals. Time will tell.

We have divided the list of runners into two categories. Immediately below are the horses technically eligible for Carnival races based on their available ratings by the Emirates Racing Authority as of January 2, 2015. The vast majority of Carnival races require horses to be rated 95 or higher. An exception, however, are races for 3-year-olds. Below this initial list is a secondary listing of horses reportedly accepted for the Carnival by the Dubai Racing Club, but are not yet in country, or with a public handicap rating.

Also, take note that the condition book published by the ERA suggests that there will be one non-Carnival-eligible handicap on some nights, typically for horses rated between 80 and 94. Horses with that eligibility are not noted here.

Below, you will find the list of Carnival-accepted horses who do not have a rating from the Emirates Racing Authority as of January 2, 2015. These horses were accepted on the basis of some interest offered by their trainer or potential trainer. A few of them have raced in the UAE in the past, but their form since then is not updated, and as such, appear on this list instead of the one above. Some of the horses listed are even with other trainers as of this publishing, and others have acknowledged they are not going. That said, we still expect to see plenty of these horses in the UAE at some point this year.
