Dubai Nursery Handicap (2) 7f

Analyst’s Verdict

Powertrain did well to land a bit of a gamble on nursery debut at Chester last month and remains of interest off 6 lb higher. Milltown Star shaped as if ahead of his opening mark over 1m here last time and the return to 7f will suit, while Ascension arguably has the most potential in the field. running out a convincing winner on her debut.

Godolphin Flying Start Zetland Stakes (Group 3) (1) 1¼m

Analyst’s Verdict

Volkan Star has a 1,000,000 gns price tag to live up to, but with good reason given his pedigree and following a commanding win at Goodwood in August, he can take another step forward (is certainly bred to stay this far). Mythical and Miss Yoda are sure to relish this stiffer test of stamina and head the opposition.

 Dubai Autumn Stakes (Group 3) (1) 1m

Analyst’s Verdict

Military March has been absent following his winning debut on the July Course during the summer, but given his pedigree, 1m and further in time will help his cause, and this well-bred colt is an appealing alternative to Molatham at the prices. Al Suhail appeared to hang fire slightly in the Solario Stakes but clearly isn’t one to write off, yet.

Darley Dewhurst Stakes (Group 1) (1) 7f

Analyst’s Verdict

Impossible to oppose Pinatubo, who is already as short as even money for the 2000 Guineas, and has looked one of the best juveniles in modern times. Wichita had 7 lengths in hand when landing the Tattersall Stakes over C&D and is a clear next best.

 Emirates Cesarewitch Stakes (Heritage Handicap) (2) 2¼m

Analyst’s Verdict

Buildmeupbuttercup looks primed to give Willie Mullins backto-back wins in this prestigious staying handicap after 2 excellent runs over shorter distances since his fine Ascot Stakes second. Fellow Irish raider Mr Everest is also set to deliver a much improved showing here and rates the chief threat while Timoshenko can fare best of the home contingent ahead of stablemate Land of Oz.

 Dubai British EBF Boadicea Stakes (Listed) (1) 6f

Analyst’s Verdict

Most of this field are well established but Farzeen arrives with all her potential intact having raced too freely on her first try in pattern company last time. Prior to that she’d been on a steep upward curve and is capable of getting back on track in what should be a more strongly-run race. Fellow 3-y-os Last Empire and Bravo Sierra are also expected to get back on the up.

Darley Stakes (Group 3) (1) 1m1f

Analyst’s Verdict

Prince Eiji made a highly encouraging comeback when fourth in a listed event at Sandown recently and we’re almost certainly yet to the see the best of this very expensive Dubawi colt, so he and the filly Feliciana de Vega might well improve past the more exposed types such as Matterhorn and Duneflower, who set a reasonable standard.
