Meydan Betting Preview for January 26 Part 2


We're stretching out in distance for the 4:40 which is reserved for 95-105 rated contenders. Jedi catches the eye and he came relatively close last time out on his first effort in nearly ten months. He was two lengths back in a field of 12 when sent off at 25/1 and he looks to have improved since last year. Dr Faustus hasn't won in a while but the gelded son of Sadler's Wells will be able to capitalize on a number of these runners not being as deep into their season as he is.

Belgian Bill is a son of Exceed and Excel who also finished second on his recent debut at Meydan. Look for him to deploy his usual stalking trip and demonstrate a bit more acumen on the run-in.


The 2012 Al Rashidiya Stakes is a Grade 2 contest with Previs serving as the outright favourite and is sure to attract a hefty betting volume. Musir is in cracking form right now and opened up his account two weeks ago when besting a field of twelve in the first round of the Al Maktoum Challenge. Mike De Kock does well turning out contenders quickly so expect a tough rival for Presvis who might be a bit leg-weary after travelling and is also not being pointed at this one and is merely using it for a prep. City Style deserves respect as does Rajsaman who is not taking a step down in class at all.

The final contest of the day is the 5:50 at Meydan and Fallen Idol is emerging as popular in the early wagering for this one. Unraced since Goodwood in September, he's been looking sharp for Godolphin and they'll be likely getting near the early pace unless it proves to be a bit too hot for Frankie Dettori's liking.

Rostrum is trading just behind at a 7/2 margin and the five-year-old son of Shamardal will be looking to build on his fourth place finish from last time out.

Bank of Burden ships in from Norway and will certainly be presenting a different type of challenge in this one. They wouldn't have brought him all this way for nothing so he may be worth a cheeky bet at a very reasonable 10/1.
