Dubawi Gold expected to prevail in bet365 Mile (Group 2)
Dubawi Gold is expected to prevail in the bet365 Mile (Group 2) at Sandown in England on Friday, April 27, 2012. The winner of the class-1 event will be awarded a cash prize of £45,368.
A total of six runners have been attracted towards the race, which is scheduled to start at 14:20 GMT. Their names are as follows: Dubawi Gold, Questioning, Famous Name, Penitent, Libranno and Cochabamba.
The going will be heavy in the 1 mile 14 yard race. One of the favourites for today, Side Glance, has been ruled out of action because of an injury. He had a golden opportunity of winning, as his record was extremely good compared to his opponents.
The five-year-old gelding has participated in 17 races until now, winning six of them and finishing runner up on a couple of occasions.
In the absence of Side Glance, the bookies have given the best odds to Dubawi Gold, as he also has a decent record in the sport. His recent form has not been good, thus the punters might not risk a lot of money in his favour.
The four-year-old colt has taken part in 18 races so far, winning five of them. In addition to that, he has also secured the runner up spot on three occasions, which shows that he is a fierce competitor.
However, the Richard Hannon’s trainee has been unable to deliver solid results over the past few races. He finished 10th in his most recent run, which shows that he struggling for rhythm at the moment.
Dubawi Gold will be partnered by J. Murtagh, who is a decent runner and has managed to win quite a few races at a good strike rate.
On the other hand, Famous Name will also be the one to watch out for in the race, as he is carrying terrific momentum right now. He has won 15 races out of 30 attempts and also has seven runners up positions to his name. Moreover, he has secured the third
spot on four times, which shows his potential to fight for top positions.
The seven-year-old horse ended up on top of the table in his previous race, thus the bettors are likely to risk some money in his favour today.
