One of the feature contests at Meydan on Thursday is the Group Two Al Rashidiya in which six of the nine runners are trained by either Saeed bin Suroor or Charlie Appleby.
Blair House, who was campaigned in Australia most recently, and Dream Castle, look the pick of the blue army, while David Simcock runs Arod.
Appleby told www.Godolphin.com: “Blair House put up a couple of decent performances out in Australia and has had a little break since.
“He is a course and distance winner and any reproduction of that form will obviously make him very competitive. He is fresh and well.”
Of Dream Castle, Bin Suroor added: “Dream Castle won well in the Singspiel Stakes and came out of the race in very good order.
“This is a step up to a Group Two race, but I have been pleased with his work and I am looking for another good run.”
The other Group Two on the card, the Al Fahidi Fort, sees Marinaresco, a star in South Africa, make his debut for Mike de Kock.
Chris Waller of Winx fame runs Comin’ Through, with George Scott’s Another Batt, David O’Meara’s Intisaab and the Appleby-trained D’Bai others to to note.
