Timeform Dubai SmartPlays: Royal Crusade holds strong claims

Timeform pick out the three best bets at Meydan on Friday.

“…could well have more to offer as a sprinter…”

#4 Kiwano – 15:45 Meydan

Kiwano made an impressive start when scoring at Kempton in the autumn and the form has a solid look to it, so a chance is taken on him to find enough improvement to maintain his unbeaten record as he steps up in grade. Mr Professor’s Pontefract success when last seen is the best piece of form on show, so he’s considered a danger along with Sovereign Prince.

SBK6/1

EXC6.2

Trainer: David Simcock
Jockey: Callum Shepherd
Age: 3
Weight: 9st 0lbs
OR:

#10 Wedding Dance – 16:55 Meydan

Charlie Appleby has bagged the last three runnings of the Group 2 Cape Verdi, and his lightly-raced Wedding Dance looks the way to go given she arrives very much on an upward curve and will also benefit from the return to 1m. C&D scorer Soft Whisper rates the chief threat back at her optimum trip, with recent Jebel Ali winner Down On Da Bayou not taken lightly either.

SBK10/3

EXC4.6

Trainer: Charlie Appleby
Jockey: William Buick
Age: 4
Weight: 9st 0lbs
OR:

#5 Royal Crusade – 17:30 Meydan

An open end to proceedings on the first Carnival card, though Royal Crusade could well have more to offer as a sprinter, and he is taken to make a winning return in this listed sprint contest. Simon Crisford’s Roulston Scar is also a big player, while Stone of Destiny doesn’t do a lot early but seems sure to be keeping on at the death.

SBK4/1

EXC5.6

Trainer: Charlie Appleby
Jockey: William Buick
Age: 5
Weight: 9st 3lbs
