Hawk’s Saturday Selections – Super Saturday in Melbourne and Dubai

March 9, 2013

Today is a huge day of racing across the world.

It is Super Saturday in Melbourne, the biggest day of the autumn in Victoria featuring the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) and the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m). From here, the autumn in Victoria begins to wind down, although there is still one more Group 1 race down south this autumn – the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) on March 22.

In Sydney, the action is just beginning to heat up with the first Group 1 of the year in New South Wales, the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), to be run today.

Across the Tasman, the Group 1 New Zealand Stakes (2000m) is set to shed a light on the Sydney autumn with a number of runners headed for our shores. However, the most intriguing runner is Cox Plate winner Ocean Park, who is having his final hitout before heading to Dubai. He was a lacklustre fourth on debut, and an improved performance would be needed ahead of his Dubai Duty Free tilt. There is also the Group 1 Diamond Stakes (1200m), where promising filly Ruud Awakening is on trial for the Golden Slipper.

Speaking of Dubai, tonight sees their Super Saturday, the primary lead up meeting to Dubai World Cup night in three weeks time featuring the Group 1 Al Maktoum Challenge (2000m) on the all weather track, as well as the Group 1 Jebel Hatta (1800m) on turf. There are also races like the Group 2 Dubai City of Gold (2400m), which has been won by Melbourne Cup runners Give The Slip, Greys Inn and Campanologist before their trips down under.

I am looking forward to getting to Meydan again this year, and will be watching tonight closely. After watching the Dubai season for a number of weeks, I am having a go at tipping tonight’s card. However, if you want a complete rundown of tonight’s meeting, I suggest heading to Dubai Race Night (www.dubairacenight.com). Pat Cummings is the most knowledgeable independent form analyst assessing Dubai, and you’ll want his thoughts if you are watching tonight’s meeting.

Good luck if you’re having a punt today!

DUBAI

Race 1 – GROUP 1 AL MAKTOUM CHALLENGE FOR PUREBRED ARABIANS, ROUND 3 (2000m) – Tapeta

This is the main lead up to the first race of Dubai World Cup night, the Group 1 Dubai Kahayla Classic (2000m).

To be honest, I know nothing about purebred Arabian form, so I have applied the same principles to purebred Arabian form that I would to thoroughbred form. Hopefully it provides good results!

I remember my top two selections, SERAPHIN DU PAON and NIESHAN, from last year. From memory, I tipped VERSAC PY – my third selection tonight – to beat Nieshan with Seraphin du Paon third. Here’s hoping Versac Py doesn’t cause me to recite the punter’s lament tonight.

SERAPHIN DU PAON has to navigate a wide gate, but I remember his strong second to TM Fred Texas in last year’s Kahayla Classic. He flew late (as much as purebred Arabians can fly). Looking at his form, his three starts this campaign have been in Abu Dhabi. He won two starts back, before an alright fifth to NASEEM last start. Getting back onto the Tapeta track should suit, and he’ll be off the speed, so a bad gate shouldn’t matter too much. I think he’ll have the last shot at them.

NIESHAN looms as the danger. Has drawn perfectly in gate 4, he only just missed last start and he can easily go one better here with a cosy run.

VERSAC PY finished 8th to Naseem last start, but wasn’t too bad once he got back onto the Tapeta. I think that will give him his opportunity here.

And NASEEM is obviously a chance, although I think he’s a better horse on turf than on the Tapeta.

It’d be the race I have the least confidence in on the card.

14 – SERAPHIN DU PAON
4 – NIESHAN
8 – VERSAC PY
5 – NASEEM

Race 2 – LISTED AL BASTAKIYA (1900m) – Tapeta

This is the main lead up for the Group 2 UAE Derby (1900m).

SNOWBOARDER intrigues me. By Raven’s Pass out of a Distorted Humor mare, the trip should suit perfectly and he’s been very strong at the end of a mile suggesting this trip should suit. With a solid tempo expected, he should be the one hitting the line strongly at the end of the 1900m. Expect him to be flying late.

Back in the winter and early spring, Zahee was running at Caulfield, Kilmore and Mornington. He was then transferred from Mick Price to Mike de Kock. He’s had two starts in Dubai, hitting the line strongly both times behind the very impressive Soft Falling Rain. By Dylan Thomas out of an Encosta de Lago mare, he’ll relish this trip and he’ll be a very good chance if he can reproduce his last two runs.

SECRET NUMBER, like the top selection, is also by Raven’s Pass. He’s had one start for a win in a Kempton maiden, when he was slow to begin and ridden out to score by a neck, so it is fascinating that Godolphin have decided to step him out here for his second career appearance. I’d be keeping a close eye on him heading to the UAE Derby.

Next best is ELLEVAL, who has had two starts here and should relish getting onto the all weather track.

4 – SNOWBOARDER
2 – ZAHEE
11 – SECRET NUMBER
10 – ELLEVAL

Race 3 – LISTED MEYDAN SPRINT (1000m) – Turf

This is the main lead up for the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint (1000m)

While doing the form, I kept coming back to SOLE POWER. I saw him in the flesh twice last year, at the Dubai World Cup meeting (when second to Ortensia) as well as at Royal Ascot (when third to Little Bridge). I think 1000m down the straight suits him perfectly, and I’d suggest there’s nothing of the calibre of Ortensia, Bated Breath, Little Bridge or Wizz Kid here. He flashed home to finish second to Invincible Ash in this race last year, and I’d be thinking he can finish one better this year.

MEDICEAN MAN, for the expat Aussie Jeremy Gask, has run very well at his two starts over this course and distance. He won at his Meydan debut, before finishing third to Dux Scholar three weeks later. Did finish well behind DANDY BOY at Royal Ascot, but prepared to forgive him for that. Well suited here with fitness on his side.

SECRET ASSET is another one I saw on a couple of occasions in the flesh last year – I saw him on Dubai World Cup night, in Singapore for the Krisflyer Sprint, and at Royal Ascot. His best performance was in Singapore in what was a below par Krisflyer, while he was beaten a long way by Little Bridge in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes (5f). I know he can pull one right out of the hat, and he didn’t show his best last year. I think second up here could be suitable, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a big turnaround in form.

Next best is RUSSIAN SOUL, who has been consistent without winning at recent starts.

6 – SOLE POWER
2 – MEDICEAN MAN
7 – SECRET ASSET
8 – RUSSIAN SOUL

Race 4 – GROUP 3 MAHAB AL SHIMAAL (1200m) – Tapeta

This is the primary lead up for the Group 1 Golden Shaheen (1200m), although Australian export Mental isn’t entered – and he’s a likely favourite.

It’s taken me almost a year to realise that KRYPTON FACTOR is simply a Tapeta horse. He was poor in his two turf runs, although he was only a length and three quarters behind Black Caviar at Royal Ascot – so not too bad. His form on the Tapeta, though, is far superior to his turf form. He won this race last year before blitzing a class field, including Singapore’s Rocket Man and our own Sepoy, in the Golden Shaheen. I expect him to win this race again, although I’m not sure how he’ll go in the Golden Shaheen this year.

The only one that can beat him for mine is Godolphin’s TIME PRISONER. He was very good last start beating Dux Scholar. He’s steppnig back in distance from 1400m, but I don’t think that’s a major concern. More concerning for mine is the fact that he’s getting onto the Tapeta for the first time. Still, I think he can be a force on the strength of his recent form.

BALMONT MAST was good behind Mental, improving after a good second to Reynaldothewizard at his previous start. I’m still not convinced, though, that he’s up to Krypton Factor. Time will tell.

Next best is HITCHENS, who was second in this race last year. He’s been below par this campaign, but any glimpse of his previous form would see him competitive here.

But for me, the race starts and ends with Krypton Factor.

2 – KRYPTON FACTOR
6 – TIME PRISONER
10 – BALMONT MAST
4 – HITCHENS

Race 5 – GROUP 2 DUBAI CITY OF GOLD (2410m) – Turf

This is the main lead up for the Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic (2400m), with the option also of heading to the Group 3 Dubai Gold Cup (3200m).

It is a race which has produced Melbourne Cup runners before, with Give The Slip (2001), Greys Inn (2005) and Campanologist (2010) winning this before tackling the world’s richest handicap later that year.

Interestingly, two Melbourne Cup runners make their return here. JAKKALBERRY has had one run since his third to Green Moon, finishing a well beaten 11th in the Japan Cup, while CAVALRYMAN is having his first run since finishing a luckless 12th in the Melbourne Cup.

However, the one that captivates me here is the former Coolmore galloper AWAIT THE DAWN. He seemed injury prone while with Aidan O’Brien, only seen occasionally. However, some of his performances were outstanding, the highlight being a victory at Royal Ascot in the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes (1m 4f – a2400m) in 2011. He had three more runs for O’Brien, the last when a long, long last in last year’s Dubai Duty Free. Now racing for Mike de Kock, he’s had two starts this campaign. He started with a lacklustre ninth in the Group 2 Al Maktoum Challenge – Round 2 (1900m) on the Tapeta before a good victory last time out in a 2000m turf handicap in which he was giving his rivals a fair amount of weight. Up to what I believe is his best trip, the 2400m, I think he’ll be hard to beat. He’ll be well suited in the small field in that he’ll race where he’s comfortable and should have the turn of foot to capitalise.

I do rate JAKKALBERRY. He did run third over this course and distance behind two class acts in Cirrus des Aigles and St Nicholas Abbey in last year’s Sheema classic, in addition to his third in the Melbourne Cup. His only win in the last year came in the American St Leger (1m 6f – a2800m), not a strong race by any standards and hardly good enough to win here. However, on his placed performances, he must rate as some sort of a chance.

MASTERSTROKE was third in the Group 1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (2400m), and even though it was a substandard Arc, he still rates highly in this field. Two starts back, he beat Geelong Cup winner Gatewood in a Group 2 at Deauville, with Prairie Star last in that same race. This is his first trip outside of France, so it will be interesting to see how he will have acclimatised in Dubai. However, I tend to think he will be primed for Dubai World Cup night and this is just a stepping stone. Some chance.

Another to rate a mention is LAAJOOJ. He races best with his runs well spaced – he’s won his last two, one at Newmarket in August off a five month break, and one in January here at Meydan off another five month break. It’s only been seven weeks since his last run, but he should be fresh enough to be competitive. Last year, he ran 10th in this race after running good seconds to Mahbooba and Songcraft, so he should be competitive here.

Next best CAVALRYMAN.

2 – AWAIT THE DAWN
6 – JAKKALBERRY
5 – MASTERSTROKE
8 – LAAJOOJ

Race 6 – GROUP 3 BURJ NAHAAR (1600m) – Tapeta

This is the main preliminary for the Group 2 Godolphin Mile (1600m), although some of these (like DULLAHAN) are likely to head to the Group 1 Dubai World Cup (2000m) instead.

Even though I can’t tip him on top, most of the interest in this race for mine revolves around DULLAHAN. I was a huge fan of his last year, when I backed him in the Kentucky Derby. He ran boldly, although he couldn’t catch I’ll Have Another and Bodemeister. He’s being talked up as a live chance in the Dubai World Cup, so I’d like to see him run well here. However, based on what I’ve seen on him in the United States, I can’t help but think this will be too short for him. We shall see, though.

I had to put AFRICAN STORY on top. He hasn’t run since last year’s Group 1 Champions Mile (1600m) in Hong Kong when he was sixth to Xtension, however he won this race last year before winning the Godolphin Mile. First up off such a break is somewhat of a concern, but given his stats in Dubai, at the distance and on the all weather track, I believe he can win this race again.

The danger is MOONWALK IN PARIS, who resumed in a similar race with a dominant win over Fulbright. He has good stats on the all weather surface, too, and with the run under his belt may have the better of African Story. I still believe African Story to be the better horse, though, hence why I have him on top.

I have DULLAHAN third, although I have no doubt he’s the classiest horse in the race, while I think RED JAZZ can run a race fresh. He ran two thirds here in similar races last year.

5 – AFRICAN STORY
4 – MOONWALK IN PARIS
2 – DULLAHAN
13 – RED JAZZ

Race 7 – GROUP 1 AL MAKTOUM CHALLENGE ROUND 3 (2000m) – Tapeta

This is the primary form race for the Group 1 Dubai World Cup (2000m), the feature of the carnival in three weeks time.

After changing my selections a number of times, I put the Japanese galloper TRAILBLAZER on top. This galloper was set to become the first Japanese horse to come to Australia for the Melbourne Cup following the outbreak of equine influenza, with his trip booked in 2010. However, it was soon discovered he wasn’t qualified, so he didn’t make the trip. Since then, he has run fourth in the 2011 Japan Cup, sixth in the 2011 Hong Kong Vase and fourth to LITTLE MIKE in the 2012 Breeders Cup Turf (when he covered a lot of ground).

So why do I have him on top? I’ve always believed he’d be better suited to an all weather surface, and he gets his opportunity here. He may want further than the 2000m, but I think he’ll be primed for this fresh and I’m expecting him to run a bold race heading to the feature in three weeks – a race won by the Japanese in 2011 with Victoire Pisa.

LITTLE MIKE has to rank as the main danger. He won the Arlington Million and the Breeders Cup Turf last year. He has a great cruising speed which allows him to break the hearts of his rivals. If he gets out and rolling here, especially from the inside, he may prove too hard to catch. But then again, who knows how he’ll adapt to the all weather surface. It is one of the big queries surrounding this race.

HUNTER’S LIGHT looks to be Godolphin’s main hope, following his dominant win four weeks ago. He is a very honest galloper who always gives his all, and if that’s good enough here, you’d think he’d be some sort of chance in the feature in the coming weeks. If he can run up to his demolition job last start, he’s a definite chance.

And last year’s Dubai World Cup hero MONTEROSSO must rate a mention, although he is a horse who definitely improves with racing under his belt. He’s another one you’d expect would be primed for a defence of his title in three weeks time.

TREASURE BEACH also creates interest at his first outing for Mike de Kock.

3 – TRAILBLAZER
1 – LITTLE MIKE
4 – HUNTER’S LIGHT
5 – MONTEROSSO

Race 8 – GROUP 1 JEBEL HATTA (1800m) – Turf

This very competitive Group 1 provides the local form line for the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free (1800m).

I was disappointed she was beaten last start, but I hope to see South Africa’s star mare IGUGU back in the winner’s circle this time out. The Australian-bred mare has been South Africa’s best horse in recent times, winning some of their best races comfortably. Unfortunately, due to an outbreak of African Horse Sickness (AHS) in South Africa, it has taken much longer to see the mare on the world stage than was originally anticipated.

She finally stepped out two weeks ago when she was beaten by SAJJHAA. However, first up in more than a year, it was a credible performance, especially given her incredible sectionals. She may need one more to be at her peak ahead of the Dubai Duty Free, but if she is anywhere near her best, she’ll be winning this.

Perhaps MASTER OF HOUNDS can make it a quinella for Mike de Kock. He looked likely to come to Melbourne for the Cox Plate last August, but at the last minute, he ended up in Turkey instead – a good decision, given he won that race. At two subsequent starts last year he looked below his best, but he returned with an alright second to Mushreq. He’ll be improved for the run and his stats on the turf track here in Meydan are good – he won this race last year to break a long drought! Expect a better performance up to the 1800m.

CITY STYLE ran third to Cityscape in last year’s Dubai Duty Free. He’s had one run back for a second to THE APACHE, who he meets here again, but I think he’ll be improved for the run and I expect him to go close, while Igugu’s conqueror SAJJHAA is the next best.

Here’s hoping we see Igugu at her peak!

5 – IGUGU
2 – MASTER OF HOUNDS
4 – CITY STYLE
3 – SAJJHAA

Race 6 – GROUP 1 NEWMARKET HANDICAP (1200m)

One of my favourite races of the year is the Newmarket Handicap, especially when a full field of 24 runners is assembled. This year, with only 13 runners to contest the race, it does feel slightly disappointing, although it is still a great race.

When it comes to the Newmarket Handicap, I like to follow the form out of the Lightning Stakes. Take away the winner Black Caviar, and the biggest run by far in the Lightning was MOMENT OF CHANGE. He gets in well at the weights and

If there’s one at odds that can beat him, it is SPIRIT OF BOOM. His run in the Oakleigh Plate was outstanding, he looks well weighted and he should be in the firing line.

Right on the limit, BETTER THAN READY looks to get in very well. He’s been backed heavily – if you’d told me before his last start in Brisbane he’d start under $5 in the Newmarket, I’d have said you were crazy. But that’s the scenario today! My mate Alex Donnelly told me the night the first markets on the Newmarket opened, Better Than Ready was the one to back at $81. Good call by him, so it looks! Now if only he can find his ticket at the $81…

And you can’t discount ORTENSIA at all. She was woeful in the Oakleigh Plate, but her record on straight tracks is very good – she won her Group 1 races overseas on straight tracks. She’s some sort of a chance.

The most interesting part of the race today will be to see if BARAKEY, LUCKYGRAY or FONTELINA can break the 96 year hoodoo for fresh runners in the Newmarket.

2 – MOMENT OF CHANGE
6 – SPIRIT OF BOOM
13 – BETTER THAN READY
3 – ORTENSIA

Race 7 – GROUP 1 AUSTRALIAN CUP (2000m)

Not a vintage Australian Cup, not even close, but an intriguing one for sure. I definitely think a few of these have the potential to progress further and I think we’ll be seeing a few of these back here in six months time, in a race like the Turnbull Stakes.

For mine, MR MOET looks the top pick. His two runs in Melbourne have been nothing short of sensational. He should get a bit more pace here, as well as more time to wind up. If he can produce that incredible finishing burst here, he will be finishing over the top of these. Big chance.

SUPER COOL, one of two three year olds, is the main danger. Comparing Super Cool and Fiveandahalfstar, I think Super Cool has more class and also is better suited over 2000m than Fiveandahalfstar. The question remains, though, will the three year old form stack up here? I can’t see any reason why not, and hope to see them run well.

There is no doubt in my mind that GREEN MOON is the classiest horse in the race, but methinks they already have one eye on the spring. Now that he’s won a Melbourne Cup, perhaps they are willing to have him primed for the autumn, but I still think the spring will be at the top of their agenda. They won’t want to jeopardise that. He could definitely win, but he won’t lose any admirers if he doesn’t win. We won’t see him again after today until the end of August or the start of September, so enjoy seeing him while you can!

And as I say every time he races, GLASS HARMONIUM is the perfect example of a horse who should be backed in the run, if at all. If he jumps with them, he’s a huge chance. If not, he’s 100-1 after they’ve gone half a furlong. Which Glass Harmonium will turn up? I’m not sure.

Other chances are FIVEANDAHALFSTAR and FORETELLER.

Race 6 – GROUP 1 CHIPPING NORTON STAKES (1600m)

Probably the best Group 1 race of the day comes in the Chipping Norton Stakes. Even with the scratching of Laser Hawk and Tougher Than Ever, there are still 7 Group 1 winners, a Geelong Cup winner, a Lexus Stakes winner, an Apollo Stakes winner, a Villiers Stakes winner and the very much in-form HAVANA REY. I’ll get back to him shortly.

For me, this is a race in two. I’ve got SHOOT OUT just in front of MANIGHAR, but it could have gone either way.

SHOOT OUT won this race last year, and first up in the spring, he won the George Main Stakes. He’s a versatile customer, he can race wherever he is comfortable, and he flies fresh. This is a suitable starting point, wherever he ends up heading in the autumn.

MANIGHAR is no slouch, though. He dominated the weight for age ranks last autumn, and he looked set to reproduce that in the spring after his enormous second to Southern Speed in the Makybe Diva Stakes. However, he was disappointing in the Underwood Stakes and he subsequently missed the rest of the spring through injury. If he performs to his best, he could blow this field away.

I’d rate SILENT ACHIEVER a chance if she’d drawn more favourably. However, from barrier 1, I can see her getting cluttered up – it is not a kind barrier at Warwick Farm for a horse who likes to race off the speed. She was very good first up, but the only way I can see her figuring is if she goes back through the field, manages to get off the fence, circles them and is presented with her opportunity on the home turn. Otherwise, she’ll probably have the flashing light on her looking to the Ranvet Stakes.

And I think HAVANA REY must rate a mention. He is stepping up in grade, big time, but he is flying and he loves this track and distance. As long as the “lawnmower effect” doesn’t come into play, he may be too fit for them.

Next best is KING MUFHASA, while GLENCADAM GOLD could potentially turn it around after his wet track failure first up.

Race 9 – GROUP 1 NEW ZEALAND STAKES (2000m)

A very nice race, with a couple of these likely to head for races like the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Despite his disappointing performance at Otaki, I have to put OCEAN PARK on top. Second up last preparation, he defeated Voila Ici, December Draw, Manighar, Southern Speed and the like in the Underwood Stakes at Caulfield. It was arguably the most impressive win of his campaign. He should strip fitter here, and if that’s the case, he’ll just win. You’d want to see him leave New Zealand on a winning note ahead of a Dubai campaign, really.

NASHVILLE must rate as the danger. They didn’t go all that hard in the Haunui Farm Classic, but he still came from last and beat them. Who knows how good he might be? Still doubt he could possibly be as good as Ocean Park, but you never know!

VEYRON has won a stack of New Zealand Group 1s, 10 in total, and is set to be tried over here in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m). I’ve never been a huge fan of the horse, and I don’t think he’s up to Ocean Park on exposed form. Once again, if Ocean Park is at his best, they are all racing for second.

And I’ve never been convinced BETTER THAN EVER is a 2000m horse, but under New Zealand conditions, who knows. Still, probably not up to the top three.

1 – OCEAN PARK
4 – NASHVILLE
2 – VEYRON
3 – BETTER THAN EVER
