The Anglo race over 7 furlongs was won in fine style by La Perruche (L’Estragon x Iron Bird) under owner/trainer/rider Philip Rondel, she quickened up nicely in the final furlong and held off the fast finishing Hardtoback (Norton Challenger x Harem VII), with Ardente Sauvage (Feu Ardent x L’Eau Sauvage) another short head back in third.

The Market Rasen Banded Stakes (Band C) over 7 Furlongs:
1. Kifah
Mr. T Collier
2. Doraman Mr. S Walker
3. Arhia Mr. S Holdsworth

Distances: 6, 2 5 ran Time: 01:55:50

Winner owned and trained by Mr. J R Collier. Bred by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Kifah (Passem Lotois x WF Wiktoria) has often looked a little short on ability but not speed and under the capable hands of trainer John Collier’s nephew Tdaji Collier she found an extra gear and made short work of this weak field to win by a comfortable six lengths and it seems the penny has finally dropped. Doraman (Monitor x Darania) didn’t have a chance with the winner and seemed tapped for toe but kept on easily for second ahead of Arhia (Khairouan x Avril De Syrah) who was another 2 lengths back in third.

The easibed Maiden Stakes over 1 Mile:
1. Khawater
Mr. P Collington
2. Shatha Mr. S Walker
3. Dhabi Mr. S Holdsworth

Distances: 2 ½, 5 7 ran Time: 02:04:50

Winner owned by HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Trained by Mrs. G Duffield. Bred by Shadwell Estate Company Ltd.

Khawater (Tidjani x Synaps) confirmed the promise she showed on her debut and scored in an authorative fashion showing a smart turn of foot to land this mile made comfortably. Shahta (Passem Lotois x Seyvilla Wikeyna) was another 2 ½ lengths back in second and may appreciate a step up in trip and her trun isn’t far away, whilst Dhabi (Dormane x Diraia) ran an eye catching race and was making ground in the closing stages to finish third.

The Jebel Ali Racing Club Banded Stakes (Series Qualifier) Bands A, B & C over 7 Furlongs:
1. Benny The Dip
Mr. T Collier
2. Jana Mr. S Holdsworth
3. Barnshill Warrior Mr. M Wall

Distances: head, ½ 14 ran Time: 01:50:20

Winner owned by Mr & Mrs J Morris. Trained by Mr. J Morris. Bred by Mrs. G Duffield.

Tdaji Collier scored his first double when piloting Benny The Dip (Bengali D’Albret x Duiker) to victory in the 7 furlong event. The horses all finished in a group and it was nip and tuck all the way to line with the principles Jana, Barnshill Warrior and Benny The Dip all out to win. In the end Collier drove Benny The Dip lead in the shadow of the post to score by a length from the admirably consistent Jana (Normativ x Joli) who was a shade unlucky. Barnshill Warrior (Madryn Warrior x Just A Legend) was another half length back in third and is going the write way.

The easibed Classified Stakes 0-90 over 7 Furlongs:
1. Najayeb
Mr. P Collington
2. CS Kabira Mr. H Haynes
3. Pavots Dreamboy Mr. S Walker

Distances: neck, 3 ½ 10 ran Time: 01:48:30

Winner owned by HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Trained by Mrs. G Duffield. Bred by Shadwell Estate Company Ltd.

Najayeb (Djebbel x Juans Karita Ku) enhanced her already tall reputation with an emphatic win in the 0-90 Classified race over 7 furlongs, always handy she showed admirable battling qualities in the final furlong to repel CS Kabira (Djebbel x Ciarosa) by a head at the line. The latter seems to have found her form after a good win at Stratford and is on the upgrade. Pavots Dreamboy (Pavot Al Maury x Autumn Dream) was another 5 lengths back in third and was clear of the rest.

The RHT Handicap Stakes 0-75 over 2 Miles:
1. CS Wraith
Mr. P Deymonaz
2. Anganate Safinat Mr. P Collington
3. WA Savannah Sunrise Mr. R Woollard

Distances: ¾, 6 8 ran Time: 04:17:10

Winner owned by The Clarendon Racing Club. Trained by Mr. A J Brunton. Bred by Mr. M Brunton.
CS Wraith (Djebbel x Waywood Ghost) lost her maiden tag with a good battling victory over Anganate Safinat in the 2 mile handicap proving she has inherited her mothers stamina. Always travelling well she dug deep in the final furlong to outstay the relentless challenge of Anganate Safinat (Manganate x Astree) and held on by a head, she can continue to progress from here. WA Savannah Sunrise (Dantist x Sasparilla Sunrise) ran her usual game race but seems to struggle over trips in excess of 14 furlongs.

The Yellow Belly Handicap over 1 Mile:
1. Malik D’Or
Mr. S Walker
2. Aljard Mr. P Collington
3. Deolali Mr. A Newey

Distances: 4, ½ 4 ran Time: 02:02:10

Winner owned by MAUFU Syndicate. Trained by Mr. W Smith. Bred by Mme M Lopez & M J M De Fajole.

The impeccably bred Malik D’Or (Dormane x Malika Fontenay) got his head in front for the MAUFU Syndicate after being highly tried in Group 1 events including the Derby and the Dubai Stakes, but dropped in grade he did nothing wrong and quickened smartly away from his rivals to win this 1 mile open handicap by an easy 6 lengths from group 2 winner Aljard (Vert Olive x Ester Du Paon). The latter had every chance but couldn’t go with the winner when the pace was increased and had to fight hard to hold onto second ahead of Deolali (Khairouan x Operetta) who was an impressive half a length back in third.
