Formful night through six races in Dubai

Throught the first six  races of the 2011 Dubai World Cup (G1) program, the results have been fairly formful.  Two more still to come and lots more coverage in the coming days on DubaiRaceNight.com.

Below, JJ The Jet Plane comes back a winner in the Al Quoz Sprint (G2)


  1. The Dubai World Cup was run at a pathetic doddle. When Victoire Pisa has to swing out 5 wide and go to the front just to inject some pace? Something’s wrong in paradise. This year’s DWC just severs to remind me how much I truly miss the conventional dirt of Nad Al Sheba. As for the Sheema Classic, I thought it was the best race on the card. I went away from that race having realized a few thing’s. #1-How truly weak the form lines for this year’s Breeders Cup Turf really were. The top finishers of the B.C. Turf, Dangerous Midge and Champs Pegasus, well I’m not entirely sure either has crossed the wire yet? LOL. #2-Rewilding really is as good as advertised, and I believe him to be the very best 12+f horse in Godolphin’s stable. Better than Campanologist, Holberg, Cavalryman, or Cutlass Bay. #3-I’ve known for sometime that Laaheb is an extremely talented colt. He’s been really brilliant at listed to G3 level in the UK. This race more than confirms to me that Laaheb is indeed a genuine G1-G2 level horse, and need’s to be raced as such from here on in. Today was his first career start in G1 company, and you can’t really throw a horse in much deeper than the Sheema Classic first time out. Rewilding, Redwood, Calvados Blues, and Laaheb all looked very competitive in the Sheema Classic. Calvados Blues walks away from Meydan having had a terrific overall 2011 carnival. These races at Meydan should really do wonders for Calvados Blues’s confidence when he returns to Europe to race. (All content entirely my opinion!!)

  2. Really enjoyed the carnival this year!! Great from start to finish with some really great horses competing every night. Thought Victoire Pisa was given a very good tactical ride to win the DWC. Given the race was run with little to no pace. The Sheema Classic and Duty Free were both extremely competitive races. A long overdue, and much deserved win for Presvis finally in the Duty Free, and great run’s from Rewilding, Redwood, Calvados Blues, and Laaheb all in the Sheema Classic. Also, two of the world’s best sprinters coming to the fore with Rocket Man and J J The Jet Plane. And an awesome UAE Derby with a great finish between Khawlah and Master of Hounds!!
