Saeed bin suroor expects excellent result to live up to his name and produce the goods in the dubai sheema classic here at meydan this weekend.

The four-year-old colt has narrowly won his last two races on the turf here in the emirate and is thus bidding for a heady hat-trick on the biggest night in horse racing on saturday.

He will need to overcome some high calibre opposition in the likes of cirrus des aigles and magician in order to do so but his emirati trainer believes he has the scope to improve still further and flourish in the near future.

”excellent result is one of my favourites as he has improved a lot physically this year” bin suroor explained.

”i like him a lot. he’s a big strong horse. i named him excellent result because when he was a yearling i always thought he could be something in the future.

”he was a little bit weak when he was a yearling but—at the end of the season last year—he changed and improved. this year he looks a picture and he’s a beautiful animal. it’s unbelievable and he’s worked really well.

”the sheema classic is a very tough race but he has the class to run well. after this meeting we’ll take him back to england to run in big races.”

Bin suroor also has high hopes for cavalryman and shuruq in the dubai

Gold cup and the godolphin mile respectively

”the horses in my stable have a good chance” bin suroor added. ”cavalryman is doing really well and working very nicely. he’s come back from his last race sound healthy and happy. the horse always runs well when he’s fresh. we gave him a break after the european season and he worked really well two days ago. i’m really happy with him and it’s a case of so far so good. he’s a very strong horse. physically he looks far better than ever before.

”shuruq also has a good chance. she beat the colts in the first race that she ran in the al maktoum challenge. she’s a tough filly especially on the tapeta. she worked really well with her last piece of work so i’m happy with her too.”

Bin suroor has songcraft joining cavalryman in the dubai gold cup fold whereas emirates flyer and paximadia are not as clearly favoured as fellow godolphin trainer charlie appleby’s little john in the uae derby.

Complicate and hunters light are somewhat long shots to land the spoils in dubai golden shaheen and the dubai duty free with the latter race seemingly a more feasible target for tasaday. african story and prince bishop are held in similar regard to tasaday in the dubai world cup fray with preference generally for the irish raider ruler of the world and hong kong duo military attack and akeed mofeed.
