Best bets for the horseracing at Meydan Friday 5th January 2024 – The Dubai Carnival

Triple G Towers has been stricken with the flu bug going around since New Years Day and is effectively in quarantine right now. Three bets were planned for today and I as one of the minions have been tasked with brining you the bets. 

Best bets for the horseracing at Meydan

William Buick rides four on the afternoon and two should be backed; both for his boss Charlie Appleby. In the 1m2f Zabeel Handicap on the Turf track at 1.30 Local Dynasty is the one to be on. He has dropped to a mark below 100 and there is nothing here of the quality he was facing at Ascot last summer. In the 1m2f Handicap on the Dirt track at 3.15 winner over eight-furlongs last month Nevershow Weakness is fancied stepping-up in trip. This will require more than that maiden victory but a mark of 83 could be lenient. At 3.50 is is the 7f Jumeirah Guineas Trial on the Turf track. Legend Of Time won a Novice at Haydock before finishing fifth in the G.3 7f Tattersalls Stakes at HQ in the summer. The colt surely has more to offer and though stall 14 doesn't help should be able to get across and Buick may try and make this a test as this one will surely get further later this season. 

As Girdy would say, Be Lucky!
