Thursday's Maydan Card.

Anyone who has followed HUR for a while will know just how much we enjoy the racing from Dubai and this card looks a cracker.

2:30 Meydan Sprint Sponsored by District One Greenery.(Group 2, Turf, 5 Furlongs)


Whilst every man and his dog may well be backing Ertijaal, for good reason, I fancy something slightly different. Blue point has been running well of late and comes here with some decent form, but may find this a little sharp. I fancy another in 'blue'. 


A wonderful horse and one that's carried the burden of my coin many a time. Winning more than once at odds greater than 50/1, so don't be put off by the 66/1 price currently available. This will be a burn up. Hasn't been seen on a race course for quite some time and you could argue that a run maybe needed to blow away the cobwebs, but I'd rather take the chance here than let it pass.

Out Do

Would have to see a massive improvement to see this old fella pass the post first. Wasn't disgraced last time out and saw off several decent runners, but was never in it at the business end. 

Sir Maximilian

Had a good season last year and went well in some very respectable races, but isn't anywhere need the standard required to win a race of this level. Finished 3rd last time out, but was well beaten. Also came 5th the race before, behind Out Do.

My Selection: Fityaan

3:40 District One 300 Villas Dash (HC 7 Furlongs on the Dirt)


Interesting horse this one. Very hard to judge for me. Only 2 runs in Dubai and the rest over in the US. You do see this horses pop up and win with bags in hand, but I'm not so sure that this will be one of those days. 

Raven's Corner

This is a horse that I've followed for a while. 2 runs already this year and finished 3rd last time out. Only ran 3 races in 2017 showing form of 211. Stands a great chance here.

The rest of the field have way too many question marks. This looks to be down to the top two in the market.

My Selection: Raven's Corner

Zabeel Mile Sponsored by District One Legacy (Group 2 Turf over a Mile)

Bay of Poets

Comes here off the back of some very impressive runs in France. Unlikely that we will go a whole card without seeing a blue silks winner and this might be the one. 2 runs here latest, which haven't been all together exciting, but this is a class race. 

Noah From Goa

Tidy horse this one. Chased home Championship in this race last year and has to be respected. Wasn't impressive last time out but prior to that shows form of 113323. No question, Noah will be fighting it out in the final furlong.


Hasn't been seen for a while due to injury and you have to believe that the last run was just for fitness. Would need to get back to the form shown a year ago to win this race, to stand any chance, but not a horse you would want to put a line through.

Dream Castle

Another of Godolphin's runners here and one that never quite finds enough. Won on debut but hasn't really shown anything since.

My Selection: Tricky one to call but Noah From Goa, just.

District One Contemporary (HC 1 mile 4 Furlongs on the Turf track)

Really looking forward to this race. Some fantastic looking horses.

Gold Star

What a horse, clearly didn't enjoy the race at York and if forgiven, form reads 31131. Not too shabby. Had the race totally under control last time out and had Walton Street and Eynhallow (Who are also in this race) well held. All things being equal, this shouldn't be an issue.

The rest of the field are going to need Gold Star to have an off day to stand any chance.

My selection: Gold Star

That's about it. If you're having a go, make sure you stick to your staking plan and have fun. We will record the P&L on this at SP prices.
