Meydan Week 5

Man Utd and Spurs both won their mid-week features, piling on the pressure on Man City who lost to Everton. Clearly the Citizens are missing some of their key players gone to the African Nations Cup and its impact cannot be underestimated. It's game on for these 3 teams.

Thursday sees another competitive night of Meydan racing in the Gulf. This is a meeting where the smaller players can bask in the sunlight as the big guns of Godolphin and Mike de Kock send a rather restricted number of troops for battle. The only race where I can see some certainty is the Listed 1000 Guineas at 12:10 which should go to Gamilati. The daughter of Bernardini will have the benefit of a run last month where she was an impressive going away winner. Word from Al Zarooni is that she has improved since then and so she should be hard to beat. Her main opponent might be her stable-mate Pimpernel whose UK form last year looks solid. This race will definitely go to the Godolphin team as there is no de Kock horse to oppose. I recommend Gamilati as a Win.

Win: Gamilati.
