15 ISSUE 750 - THURSDAY 20 JANUARY 2022 Sovereign Prince Pevensey Bay Sed Maarib RB Rich Lyke Me Secret Ambition Kafoo Summer Is Tomorrow Mutaraffa Salute The Soldier Dubai World Cup Carnival horses our very own Duane Fonseca will watch closely next time PEVENSEY BAY: - superb turn of foot to win from second last after rounding everyone in front of her in the straight. Flourishing on her first ever run in Group company and with her legend of a partner expected to ride again next time, things will only get better. RB RICH LYKE ME: - peerless in two starts so far suggesting we might have seen the winner of this year’s Dubai Kahayla Classic already. None here right now seem capable of turning the tables on Fawzi Nass’ grey. SED MAARIB: - fell tad short. Might have had a little too much to do with little ground left and too much traffic to negotiate. Things could have been different if either factor would have swung even marginally in his favour. SECRET AMBITION: - old but not done and not a bad run on his seasonal bow. A better draw perhaps would have helped shut out eventual winner, who had a massive advantage racing in close second along the rail. Has to improve for run. PESSEMONA: - may have had more of say in Cape Verdi had she enjoyed clear run. This should tee her up nicely for Balanchine over an extra furlong next month and her trainer won that race in 2014. MUTARAFFA: - showed he’s still improving in taking closing sprint on seasonal return. He ran well in a Group 3 last term and can be a force back in Pattern company.
