Thursday 27th February Zabeel Mile Group Two Bet !!
(Trade Storm can land back to back wins in G2 Zabeel Mile)
5.00 MEYDAN ZABEEL MILE GROUP TWO TURF:
Eight runners declared for feature race at Meydan the group two £150,000 Zabeel Mile on the turf at Meydan.This looks decent little group two contest with the three main contenders : Mushreq ,Trade Storm & Mshawish
MUSHREQ : Been in good form at this years carnival, winning 9 furlong listed race at Meydan in January beating Gabrial in good style .Also finished close second behind stablemate Mujaarib in group two Al Rashidiya last time in fast time .Looks sure go well under similar conditions.
TRADE STORM : Good record at Meydan last season winning twice ,including winning this race last year beating the useful Mike De kock trained Musir in good style .However probably ran his best race finishing fourth in Group one Dubai Duty Free at Meydan . Will need to bounce back after poor run last time at Meydan .
MSHAWISH : Had some fair form last season ,including finishing decent fourth in G1 St James Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot behind Dawn Approach .Finished good second behind Anearobia in G2 Al Fahidi on first start this season at Meydan .
VERDICT :Mushreq has solid form in this grade and has obvious claims after just getting touched off last time in G2 at Meydan .However on official ratings has very little in hand and there looks better value elsewhere .
Last years winner TRADE STORM rates as the each-way value here ,can be forgiven for poor run last time at Meydan .Not given hard race after meeting trouble in running and normally improves a lot for first run of the season .Had some excellent form last season at Meydan,including finishing ahead of Mushreq in G1 Dubai Duty Free.Odds around 4-1 look fair each-way value.
Of the others Mshawish can't be ruled out after finishing promising second last time at Meydan in group two company .Should come on for that run ,though top price 3-1 doesn't look great value for horse yet to win in group company .
