Who To Follow In Meydan On Saturday

Horse To Follow - Equilateral

The first Group One of the evening is the Al Quoz Sprint over six furlongs and Equilateral for Charles Hills, looks to be one of the most progressive horses in the field this year.

The six year old has been consistent most of the time, with the geldings best run of last season coming behind stablemate Battaash in the Group One King's Stands Stakes when a close second at Royal Ascot.

Since then the horse was struggling in similar company, but gave another solid run on his final start of the season at Newbury when third in a Group Three.

He seems to favour running in Meydan giving his best efforts of late here, landing a handicap in January on his first run this season, which he also won last term.

Off the back of that run last year he headed into the Group Two Meydan Sprint, which he did the same this season and having finished a good second last year, he went on to win it this term.

He is now two from two on good ground over five furlongs at Meydan and although stepping up a furlong he is a seriously quick horse that is on a upward curve.

Trainer To Follow - John Gosden

John Gosden is one of the most well known trainers in flat racing history and on Saturday he looks to be really getting himself ready for a new season ahead, releasing some big guns at Meydan.

On Saturday the British handler has some huge chances in the big races, none bigger than Mishriff in the Group One Dubai Sheema Classic.

The four year old heads into the event off the back of landing the richest race in world in the Saudi Cup and although being drawn in the car park he has a huge chance.

Another big chance for Gosden on the day is his Royal Ascot Prince Of Wales's Winner Lord North, who is looking for more black type glory in the Dubai Turf.

Gosden heads into the meeting in fine form having had three winners from his last 15 runners which sees him pose a 20% strike rate.

Jockey To Follow - Ryan Moore

Finally, the jockey we believe will have an exceptional time of things on Saturday is Ryan Moore who has a nice book of chances across the day.

In the first race of the day he sits on the 10/1 chance Roman Rosso who is dropping back into a Group One after finishing third in a Group One and could go well.

Another nice chance across the day comes in the Dubai Gold Cup with Spanish Mission for Andrew Balding, with this horses last run being a perfect prep race for the Group Two event.

Moore has been flying on the all weather back in England and over the last two weeks has had seven winners from 12 rides which sees him head into the meeting with a 58.33% strike rate.
