A good day for our Free Members across the board yesterday with Will Kedjanyi (pictured above with Nicky Henderson) the star performer tipping 25/1 (SP 14/1) and 9/2 winners at Meydan, a 9/1 winner at Newbury plus 4 places for each way tips.

Dubai Turf Sponsored By DP World (Group 1) (3.40)
A well up to standard Group 1 and deeply contested. The choice between Zarak and Ribchester is a hard one but the trip and a local prep give the favorite the vote. Brilliantly bred (Dubawi-Zarkava), he endured a slightly frustrating three year old career but it’s worth remembering that he was second twice to Almanzor in the Prix-Du Jockey Club and then the d’Ornano at Deauville and he had the trip against him in the Moulin and was given plenty to do in the Dollar. His reappearance win in the Dubai Millennium suggested he’d had a good winter and this nine-furlong trip will be perfect for him. Ribchester had a phenomenal campaign last year but he did need his first run last year in the Prix Dejbel last year. Mutakaayef missed his intended prep for this which is a worry for all that he’s got a big form chance; Decorated Knight was impressive in the Jebel Hatta but it was a poor renewal so one is counting on more improvement there. Deauville could get the better of Mondialiste (the two were separated by half a length in the Arlington Million) over this shorter trip and the pair have to be considered here. Cougar Mountain has come up short at Group 1 level and Long Island sound was behind Deauville when the two last met at Belmont so more is needed. The Japanese have a fine record here and it is interesting to note that Vivlos, a winner of the Sukha Sho at Kyoto last October, used the same prep race that Just A Way (2014) and Real Steel (2016) used as a springboard here and it is unlikely that Joao Moriera will be giving her as much to do as Hiroyucki Uchida did in the Nakyama Kinen. The form of that success needs to be improved on a tad but she looks woefully overpriced. Heshem beat Zarak in what was a good classic season for him and his decent prep run should see him perfectly set up for this, so each/way support would be no surprise.
Advice: 1 pt win Zarak (5/2 general), 1 pt each/way Vivlos (25/1 general)
