Meydan Betting Preview PT 2

Polar River only has the single race under her belt but looks to be getting a lot of credit from the bookmakers here with a solid second place price of around 5/2. That’s signifcant when you figure that she comes into the race just behind a contender with Group level victories. 

It was a massive thirteen length victoty on the debut at Meydan and many will be expecting her to kick on once again here and at least give Promising Run a bit of competition. She is up second time and could be set to improve off that last contest at Meydan. 

Next up we’ve got the UAE 2000 Guineas Trial with Steady Pace now considered to be the bookmakers choice for the big victory. The Godolphin trainee hasn’t won since scoring at Ascot in a maiden contest last year but the punters seem to be confident in his ability to get the job done here on his debut at Meydan racecourse. 

He has been on the shelf since mid-September when he finished a solid third to Shalaa in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes. Now with Shalaa out of his way many might expect him to kick on and produce some solid effort here. You will find him trading right now at a 5/4 margin. Rouleau is another Godolphin entry here who actually finished behind Steady Pace in the Middle Park - only able to muster up a fifth place finish. Prior to that he took a Group 3 contest at Kempton in the Sirenia Stakes. He’s priced at 5/2 and worth keeping your eye on. 

The Dubawi Stakes is the next up contest and we have some very interesting contenders in this one as several very formful contenders come into the mix in this crucial listed race. Sheikh Hamdan’s Muarrab looms as the significant favourite here with four victories on the bounce in his last few - three of which came up the hill at Jebel Ali. 

He was able to open his Meydan account for the season last time out in mid-December when he scored by a five length margin over a pretty tricky field of 9. He hasn’t finished outside of the top three in his last 12 races and that belies the confidence that you’re seeing expressed in him by the bookmakers.
