Ihtimal in line for Guineas after Dubai rehearsal
Thursday 06 February 2014
Godolphin's Ihtimal entered the 1,000 Guineas reckoning with victory in the UAE equivalent at Meydan.
The winning trainer Saeed bin Suroor said: "She's tiny but she has a real turn of foot. We have some nice fillies here and in England but she's the best one. I think she will have one more run here [possibly UAE Oaks], then the target is the English Guineas."
Bin Suroor also won the night's other feature, as Kieren Fallon caught his rivals napping on Prince Bishop in round two of the Al-Maktoum Challenge.
At Doncaster, the former smart Flat racer First Mohican made a winning hurdling debut for Alan King, who said: "For a novice first time out that was as good a round of jumping as you could get."
