Message: What an awesome program they have put on, 7 of the 8 races are worth a $1m or more and those seven carry Group status with 4 Gr1 races on the card culminating with the Dubai World Cup worth $10m. This carnival has attracted the best from all over the world.
I think California Flag looks good in the Al Quoz Sprint, his effort in HK was superb after being hammered for the lead.
Previs in the Duty Free, the longer straight suits his racing style and he's a last start winner here too.
Looking forward to seeing the American Presious Passion in the Sheema Classic, he's a real tearaway leader in the Vo Rogue style. He's coming off a solid last start win.

Message: BV looks like a very good filly to me- if they race her overseas it will be interesting. The Arc would be the target if I had her- the track will suit and weight allowance- she has plenty of scope for improvement and bottom line is she should have won her first task overseas.

Message: Forget Presvis ever went around, blocked for runs all the way down the straight.
BV, definitely a good thing beaten and Precious Passion folded unusually easy for him.
California Flag tried hard, he seemed to get a little lost during the race and drifted around a bit.
You're right about the ride on Rocketman Rex, he should have won the race had he been ridden to his usual pattern. Why ease up on him midrace when he's a front runner, it wasnt like they were going flat out early either.
The new Tapeta surface seemed to race really well and those who race on dirt and turf seemed to handle the track surface as well as each other. Perhaps the surface should be looked at here as another option. From the viewing of the Dubai races, you can bet with confidence with this surface.

it was declared as 2 pound on track by Terry Spargo and I was told it was actually 2.5 in reality- but I can not be 100% sure, you may be right. Think they have a very good horse there though- this could be one little Japanes filly to give pink some fun over the next 6-7 months.

Message: Presvis has shocking luck- not sure if he would have won though as he was too far back, would have had to run some amazing sectionals.
There was a whisper on track that BV would be aimed at the Arc- looks a very good horse to me. The Japanese I spoke with rate her very highly. I alo think this Aussie bred Munsir looks very exciting- Michael De Kock stated that he was the best 3yo he had campaigned in Dubai (he has won the derby 5 times).
Have you seen the scuffle in the Jockeys room? Willie Supple lashed out at Christophe Soumillion. Soumillion nearly put Willie on the deck in the Derby and Willie was not a happy chap when they got back to the room.
Wonderful talent is Soumillion, but not a popular boy amongst his peers.

DRM is the best filly in Europe. First girl home in the Arc and has shown her class around the world- she may not be STS, but how many are? she is a star in her own right and Beuna Vista looks like she could be to.......make no mistake, BV should have won the race- but what a great performance by DRM first up

Message: Well both Rocket Man and Buena Vista finished 2nd and both unlucky- speaking through my kick but why Fadd let the US horse come across get first run on him, ease back, get checked and lose like he did I will never know.
Buena Vista- well, checked at the 800, held up momentarily in the straight but the worst bit- Pelier declares 2.5 pounds over and carries 55kg- not excusable in a G1 race when not pre notified- poor effort.
Fortunately Munsir (the aussie Bred Khap) winning the derby meant it wasnt to bad a day.
Anyway, it has been a cracking meeting- the racing has been very good and the entertainment is just something else, noty to mention the facility itself. Hope you managed to find a winner.

It is truly an amazing facility- Ive traveled the world and there is nothing like it. Dont be fooled- there is plenty of drinking on course and you only need to go on line (free wi fi) to place a bet.
I cannot stress enough how strong the tip for Rocket Man has become. I had dinner tonight with two professional punters and two people from the Singpaore Turf Club, and they all convinced me that the horse was near on unbeatable. Now, old foruminites I would like to think know I dont tell porkies (regardless of what they may think of me..lol)- one of these punters has had $40,000 on straight. On top of this I have recieved a negative report re: Gayego from someone I rate as a astute judge. As I said before, do what you want with the info.
Buena Vista is the next biggest tip- the Japanese are adamant that it is better than Red Desire and as good as Vodka.
