Ali Rashid Al Raihe put the UAE racing scene on notice after four consecutive wins to close the first night of racing at Meydan on Thursday. Il Grande Maurizio (first picture) got the party started for the local training champion, followed by Carnival winner Alazeyab, then Rochdale, before well-favoured Zain Shamardal (second picture, below) capped the night. Royston Ffrench piloted three of the four Al Raihe winners while Richie Mullen caught the early double for Satish Seemar. Racing resumes at Meydan on Friday, November 25. DubaiRaceNight.com tipped two winners on the card, with Skycruiser and Alazeyab on top. Racing continues Sunday with a six-race fixture at Abu Dhabi. A preview will be posted later.
