Arabian Racing Review
Newbury Sunday 3rd August
by Paul Simmons

The Arabian Racing Premier Handicap Stakes 0-90 over 1 Mile 2 Furlongs:
Ejaabi (Prince D’Orient x Segalaoui) has always looked a class act, he won his maiden nicely over this trip before an excellent second to Falak over a mile on Dubai Day; and he gained suitable compensation here when winning under a fine ride from Michael Hills to beat stablemate Marsak but just under two lengths. Ejaabi showed a blinding turn of foot in final half furlong to win and can go on from here for trainer Gill Duffield and owner HH Sheikh Hamdan. Back in second was 7-4 Fav Marsak (Al Sakbe x Margau) who was third to Marsak on Dubai Day and also won his maiden over this trip, Richard Hills was all out on him inside the final furlong but couldn’t reel in the winner. Whilst Alize Safinat (Tidjani x Al Din) ran another excellent race in defeat for the Royal Cavalry of Oman, he was finishing fast and furious in the last furlong and only lost out to Marsak by a neck. Solid yardstick Deolali was a credible fourth.
