Talented sand galloper Pak Lok Angel made a welcome return to form with an upset win in Friday night’s Class 1 Handicap over 1350 metres at Taipa in Macau.
A rails hugging ride by Brazilian rider Leo Salles saw Pak Lok Angel give his rivals the slip around the bend for home when he darted though on the inside of the race favorite and leader River Bobo (Ruan Maia) and powered away from his rivals to win easily.
It has taken nearly 12 months for last year’s SJM Macau Derby winner Turquoise Power to make it back to the winners circle, but the five year did it all in good style when he bounced back to form with a strong win over 1800m at Taipa last Saturday.
Given a lovely ride by Andrew Calder, Turquoise Power charged home late between runners to beat Lucky Winston (Martin Wepner), with Grand Double Win (Charles Perkins) running on well for third.
Not a bad way for a trainer to get his first winner.
Chad Summers was winless in four starts since taking out his license last month, yet the 32-year-old brought his best horse to Meydan and the four-year-old Mind Your Biscuits (USA) came through by storming down the centre of the track to dominate the Dubai Golden Shaheen sponsored by Gulf News. There were three lengths back to Comicas (USA) and it was a short head back to Morawij (GB), who stayed on gamely for third.
Trainer John Gosden and jockey William Buick again teamed up to superb effect in the Longines Dubai Sheema Classic as Godolphin’s Jack Hobbs (GB) stormed back to his brilliant best.
Seven years have elapsed since Buick launched his association with Gosden by landing the race on Dar Re Mi, and the now Godolphin-retained rider was sporting his famous blue silks as he strode clear for a two-and-a-quarter-length victory.
Jockey Joao Moreira left Meydan spellbound by his magic touch as he conjured a dashing late run from the Japanese filly Vivlos (JPN) to capture the Dubai Turf sponsored by DP World.
Quietly ridden for most of the race by the brilliant Brazilian, Vivlos cut down the French-trained Heshem (IRE), who looked likely to pull off a shock result at the 200m, inside the final strides of US$6 million showpiece to win by half a length. An identical margin behind finished Ribchester (IRE) in third having raced prominently throughout.
