The horses have now been in Dubai for over 10 days now and look to have settled in really well. The weather has been at a consistent temperature, with cool mornings allowing for the perfect conditions for exercising. With five horses currently out there and one more on his way at the end of the week, we have some lovely chances in what is a very competitive Carnival.
The first of those runners will come on Thursday where KHAFOO SHEMEMI and GEORGE WILLIAM take their places. The race is on the turf and over a mile. The declarations will be out tomorrow and the wait will be on what draw they get. ‘I have been extremely happy with how they have settled into Dubai life and I feel they are both there to run their races. They had a nice bit of work last Saturday and both went well and so I am hopeful of a solid run.’
The other four which include, TUPI, TANGLED, OH THIS IS US and ACROSS THE STARS will all line up in the coming weeks. ‘Tupi and Oh This Is Us will head down the handicap route and hopefully they can both go better than last year. Tangled being the only three year old has races in mind such as the Meydan Classic, with a couple of other runs on the way there. They all look great and I am hopeful they can all run well.’
The team have been running well at home and it is only a matter of time before they get a winner on the board for 2018.
