Meydan Thursday Preview - 12/02/20

15:05 - Princess Bride

Meydan has been a happy hunting ground for us and our tips this season with some huge priced winners and we are looking to do the same this week.

In the first contest of the day we fancy the Saeed bin Suroor trained Princess Bride to take the Meydan Trophy with Harry Bentley a superb jockey booking.

This three year old filly has decent form on her turf starts over in Britain placing twice in some nice races and now coming back to grass after a poor dirt run makes her one to watch.

15:40 - Bochart

The first contest subsequently on the dirt is the six furlong Tabloid Handicap and we are siding with the seven year old Bochart.

This gelding put in a career best performance last time out when scoring over course and distance and he recorded a very fast time that day that has to be respected.

Although this looks to be tougher he showed plenty of experience and ability when seeing out the race and he should go well again.

16:15 - Magic Lily

The first big contest of the day at Meydan is the Group Two Balanchine over one mile one furlong and Charlie Appleby's chance Magic Lily looks the one to beat.

The five year old has had a tough career with injury problems but does have some nice form lines that she finally fulfilled last time out on her first start at Meydan.

She landed the Group Two Cape Verde over a mile seeing off some talented runners including second favourite Nisreen and now getting an extra furlong she should be even better.

16:50 - Torosay

The Reach five furlong handicap sees some very speedy horses head to post and the Doug O'Neill trained Torosay won't be far away.

The booking of William Buick is a very shrewd one and if the four year old can back up what he was doing before the turn of the year he has to be in the mix,

In November on his debut he won very nicely showing clear ability but also scope to improve, since then he has finished second twice in decent company but now back to a stiff five furlongs it should bring the best out of him.

17:25 - Matterhorn

The Group Three Firebreak Stakes over a mile sees some very familiar faces from the British flat scene take to the dirt and Matterhorn formerly with Mark Johnston looks to have a big chance.

The five year old was a superb runner in the UK, especially on the all weather winning six of his first seven races whilst surfing the sand.

He was tried on turf and although still talented did not look the same horse and now back on a surface he will enjoy and having his first run for his new trainer he looks very interesting.

18:00 - Jalmoud

The final runner of the afternoon comes in the Friday Handicap and Jalmoud for Charlie Appleby is dropping back massively in class and needs to find his confidence.

Last season he landed a Listed contest in France whilst also placing in the Group One Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp which is unbelievable form.

However, since then he has been very below par in, granted, tough events but now dropping back into handicap company he should be a class above if getting back to his old form.
