The Royal Cavalry of Oman Series Final Premier Handicap 0-100 over 1 Mile:
A slightly surprising result as smart handicapper and former Dubai Day winner Shuhood galloped his rivals into submission with a superb display in this mile event/ Alize Safinat set a decent pace from the start and was all out the winner in the final furlong but Shuhood (Bengali D’Albret x Shunah) was coming with a dazzling run under a superb ride from Sam Hitchcott and just got up at the line by a head for trainer Beverley Paterson. Commenting afterwards Paterson said “He’s very talented but I wasn’t sure if he would stay a mile but he’s done it well today”. Alize Safinat (Tidjani x Al Din) was once again brave in defeat, he was head to head with the winner all the way to the line but just lost out. Whilst Noble Athlete (Dorwan Du Cayrou x Noble Dame) ran a great race back in third, always handy he came with a good run inside the final furlong and was gaining with every stride at the line and lost out by half a length in the end; but was clear of Deolali in fourth.
