The Travemunde Maiden Stakes – 1 Mile ½ Furlong:
1. Udjedai Des Agatchols
Mr. P Collington
2. Penny Black Mr. S Harrison
3. Jasoora Mr. S Walker

Distances: ½, 1 ½ 13 ran

Winner owned by HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Trained by Mrs G Duffield. Bred by E.A.R.L. Mezagri.

The opening maiden over 1 mile and ½ furlong was a muddling affair with most of the field being left at the start. However, Gill Duffield’s Derby entry Udjedai Des Agatchols (Dormane x Udjella) won nicely in the end but was made to pull out all the stops by Jackie Hutchings recruit Penny Black (Chndaka x Pevunja (Vympel)) who was only beaten half a length and looks useful. Jasoora (Passem Lotois x Emeraude Du Cayrou) stayed on for third and is going the right way.

The Offshore Handicap Stakes (0-75) 5 Furlongs:
1. Za’eemah
Mr. S Walker
2. Lubaba Mr. P Collington
3. Fayre Abi Mr. P J Murphy

Distances: 4, 1 ½, 7 ran

Winner owned by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Trained by Mr. W Smith. Bred by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Saeed.

Za’eemah (Passem Lotois x PS Crystal Sage) won the 0-75 handicap over five furlongs and sprinted clear of her rivals by an easy five lengths to make it from two and looks firmly on the upgrade. Lubaba (Nuits St Georges x Arytmia) made a pleasing seasonal debut in second but couldn’t live the winner but remains well handicapped, whilst Fayre Abi (Abitibi x Fayrelands Gold) was one and half lengths back in third and looked tapped for toe in the straight.

The Lake Traunsee Handicap Stakes (Open) 5 Furlongs:
1. CS Patriarch
Mr. D Turner
2. Shahngali Mr. P Deymonaz
3. Baraka Sharlap Mr. S Walker

Distances: 3, 3 4 ran

Winner owned and bred by Mr. M Brunton. Trained Mr. A J Brunton.

CS Patriarch (Makzan x Pokrovka (Desant)) is another who looks to be improving. Last seasons leading Pure bred made use of his light weight to outsprint Group 3 winner Shahngali (Bengali D’Albret x Affecshahn (Derbist)) over the five furlong trip, he made all and came home an easy one and a half lengths clear in the end. Baraka Sharlap (ZT Shahkar x Al Tamah) was the same distance behind in third and seemed to find this trip a touch on the sharp side.

The Jebel Ali Racing Club Banded Stakes (Series Qualifier) 1 Mile ½ Furlong:
1. SA Bibi
Mr. G C Farr
2. Kateland Mr. P J Murphy
3. Notid Mr. F J Offord

Distances: ¾, 2 13 ran

Winner owned by Mrs. J K Farr. Trained by Mr. G C Farr. Bred by Miss W Parkin.

SA Bibi (Abitibi x Florich) gained revenge on Kateland who defeated him at Fontwell last week by winning the Jebel Ali Qualifier with three quarters of a length to spare, in doing so trainer / jockey Gordon Farr rode out his claim. Kateland (Vert Olive x Fayrelands Gold) made all but was stalked throughout by SA Bibi who got his head in front in the final furlong. Notid (Tidjani x Sherrie Noreen) continues to run consistently and stayed on for third for in the in form David Paton yard.

The Fujairah Banded Stakes (Band C) 5 Furlongs:
1. Maximillion
Mr. H Haynes
2. Aqtal Mr. F J Offord
3. Dakota Willow Mr. M Wall

Distances: neck, 3 8 ran

Winner owned and trained by Mrs. G Haynes. Bred by Mrs. V Bunting.

Genny Haynes hasn’t had a runner for over year Arab racing but she made it a winning return when Maximillion (Crusader x Marsinique) out galloped his rivals in the five furlong Band C race giving jockey Harry Haynes his first winner racing. Aqtal (Crusader x Azz El Kheil) was sent off favourite and looked to have the race at his mercy but Maximillion battled on well to score at the line by a neck. Dakota Willow (Estamera x CR Bint Natalie) ran another sound race and was four lengths back in third.

The Stresa Handicap Stakes (0-90) 1 Mile 4 Furlongs:
1. A Mans Man
Mr. S Walker
2. Deolali Mr. A Newey
3. CS Clarion Mr. P Collington

Distances: short head, 3 10 ran

Winner owned and bred by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Trained by Mr. W Smith.

A Man’s Man (Dormane x Amira D’Albret) won the one mile four furlong event under a strong ride from Champion jockey Simon Walker, however he was made to work hard as Deolali (Khairouan x Operetta) was snapping at his heels all the way to the line. Deolali was held up this time and seemed to stay the trip and was narrowly beaten a short head on the line. CS Clarion (Chndaka x Cikada) came back to form and stayed on for third.

The Tvedestrand Graduation Stakes (Anglo & PBA) 1 Mile ½ Furlong:
1. Oakvalley Rialto
Mr. P Collington
2. Hardtoback Mr. R G Woollard
3. Chiloe Mr. P D Rondel

Distances: 9, 1 ½ 4 ran

Winner owned and trained by Mr. W Hill. Bred by Mrs M – L Lees.

Oakvalley Rialto (Band On The Run x Rialtesse) made short work of her rivals in the final race over one mile and half a furlong coming home eight lengths clear under a confident ride from Phil Collington. Hardtoback (Norton Challenger x Harem VII) was always chasing in second but ran well enough, as did Chiloe (Saratogan x Belle D’un Soir) who was another length back in third.
