Bentley, Limato look for glorious ride

Harry Bentley has been the star turn in Qatar over the last couple of seasons and the youthful Englishman is looking to Limato (IRE) to provide him with a first Dubai World Cup night winner in the Al Quoz Sprint sponsored by Azizi Developments.

Bentley has four times being crowned champion jockey in Doha but has drawn a blank in seven previous mounts under the dazzling Meydan lights.

But all that could change thanks the Henry Candy-trained Limato, who provided the jockey with a first-ever Group 1 success in the 1200m July Cup — staged over the same trip as Saturday’s race — at Newmarket last summer.

“This is my fifth time riding on Dubai World Cup night and it is brilliant to be going there with such a good ride,” said Bentley. “He would be the best horse I have ridden at this meeting.

“I have had a good time in Qatar and am leading the jockeys’ championship so I am pleased about that and have had five winners here in Dubai.

“I have been going to Qatar the last four years now and have been Champion Jockey every year and last year was my best season with 105 winners. I have had a really good time over there and things are still going well.”

Limato has won six of his 12 starts with the July Cup being the highlight, but he also landed the Group One Prix de la Foret on Arc weekend in Paris and signed off the campaign with a sixth-placed finish in the Breeders’ Cup Mile in California.

“We learned a lot about the horse going to America as he had never been away but he took it brilliantly and he was a real pro. He has settled into the routine well here and is a good traveller,” Bentley continued.

“After here the obvious target is the Diamond Jubilee and 1200m at Ascot will suit him well and there is a good but of time between now and then for him to recover.”

Limato is one of the leading chances in the Al Quoz and Bentley is wary of local challenge Ertijaal (IRE), a horse who finished second to Australian star Buffering in the race last year.

“I think the track will suit him great and the race looks plenty competitive,” said Bentley. “Ertijaal looks an obvious contender and there should be plenty of pace and it should suit him.

“It looks a strong field but we have beaten Jungle Cat (IRE) in the July Cup and have a few angles covered but the main disadvantage is that we haven’t had a run and many others have.

“He ran last October in the Breeders’ Cup so hasn’t had a run for five months, but Mr Candy is happy with him and he seems in good spirits.”

With several jockeys’ champions on his mantelpiece along with the July Cup, the Al Quoz trophy would surely, and rightly, take pride of place for the UAE-loving Bentley.

The Right Man For Al Quoz Sprint Job

Going 1200m on the turf straight of Meydan, the Al Quoz Sprint sponsored by Azizi Developments had the potential to deliver an exciting finish.

On Saturday afternoon it outdid itself when French-trained The Right Man (GB) held on by a diminishing nose over American invader Long On Value (USA) in a thrilling finish in a swift 1.09.59.

Ridden by Francois-Xavier Bertras in the colours of Pegase Bloodstock, the son of Lope de Vega won for the ninth time in 17 starts, and at the top level for the first time. Previously he was a Group 3 victor in France last November.

It was another length and a quarter back to the Bill Mott-trained runner-up, with Ertijaal (IRE) in third. Multiple European Group 1 winner Limato (IRE) and highly regarded Hong Kong gelding Amazing Kids (NZ) failed to factor.

The Right Man prepped for the Al Quoz with a course and distance try in the Nad Al Sheba Turf Sprint earlier in the month, finishing third behind Jungle Cat (IRE), who finished a nose behind Ertijaal in fourth.

“I was always confident,” Bertrand said. “I knew in the prep race that the horse was not 100 per cent fit and would come on from that. I got a good position (behind Ertijaal) and my horse was very brave right to the end. You live your life for moments like this.”

Guillemin added through a translator: “I was very emotional because it was an honour to be invited. To have such a finish and win it is absolutely amazing. We’re very proud of the horse. When he finished third here, we were very happy with that result and even happier that he’s won here tonight.

UAE developer Azizi buys more land plots in Meydan

UAE-based Azizi Developments has announced the purchase of six additional plots within Meydan, an integrated city and destination in Dubai for business, sports and lifestyle.
The additional plots will be added to the 180 Meydan plots acquired by Azizi Developments last month, which will lead to a city within the master development, the company said, without giving a value for the purchase.

The six additional plots will feature low-rise residential and retail projects near Meydan One Mall, it added.
Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, said: “The combination of Meydan’s strategic location and our comfort with the master developer has led Azizi Developments to expand our original investment.

“Our increased commitment to this development is a statement of its immense potential for growth and aligns with the company’s vision, transforming Meydan into a recreational, residential and hospitality destination.”
He added: “Last month, we acquired 180 plots from Meydan and the additional six plots in the same area, show our growing confidence in this city. A multitude of acquisitions across Dubai will be announced soon.”

Meydan was originally launched in August 2015 by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The development will also feature Dubai One Tower, which will be the world’s tallest residential tower at a height of 711 metres.
