Taamol looks good to shine in Jebel Ali

The National - News - - SPORT FOOTBALL -

Jebel Ali is host­ing the soli­tary race meet­ing this week­end as the coun­try pre­pares to cel­e­brate the UAE’s 48th Na­tional Day. Fri­day’s high­light of the seven-race thor­ough­bred card is a cou­ple of hand­i­caps for horses rated 75-95, the fourth race over the 1,200m and the sixth over the 1,600m trip. Sure to go well in the first of the two hand­i­caps is Taamol, one of five en­tries in the silks of Sheikh Ham­dan bin Rashid, and the choice of the owner’s re­tained jockey Dane O’Neill. The Ali Rashid Al Raihe-trained five-yearold Hel­met geld­ing was a short head sec­ond to Night Cas­tle over the course and dis­tance four weeks ago and can im­prove for that run. The field in­cludes Doug Wat­son’s My Catch, third in the 1,000m Listed Jebel Ali Sprint on his only visit to this course.
