(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) An interesting Abu Dhabi card on Sunday is highlighted by the Group 3 Al Ruwais, a 1,000m dash for the Purebred Arabians in which the Majed Al Jahouri-trained Thakif is seeking a third consecutive victory



That feat has been achieved before, by the legendary Big Easy, trained by Satish Seemar for Shaikh Rashid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum



As in the previous two years, Harry Bentley rides Thakif and said: "He has a lot of natural speed and clearly relishes the Abu Dhabi 1,000m. We have a better draw than last year and you have to be hopeful that he can make it three years in a row.



He is owned by Shaikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, as is stable companion Rakha, the horse who chased him home 12 months ago and will bid to turn the tables with the assistance of Silvestre De Sousa



It would be no surprise if the two stable companions and old rivals were to dominate again



The card also features the 1,600m Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club Gold Cup, won last year by AF Sanadek for trainer Eric Lemartinel and owner Khalid Khalifa Al Nabooda



Lemartinel saddles HK Alawiya this year, with his French compatriot, Gerald Avranche in the saddle but Al Nabooda's AF Al Hazer appeals as a more likely winner. Trained by Ibrahim Al Hadhrami, he is the mount of Royston Ffrench who was in treble form at Al Ain's inaugural meeting on Friday



Molahen El Alhan, representing the powerful duo of Champion Trainer, Ernst Oertel and Champion Jockey, Tadhg O'Shea, could be the main danger
