Watson Seeks Strong Start in Thoroughbred Contest
After Friday's opening meeting at Jebel Ali, the racing community moves to Sharjah on Saturday with pride of place going to the sole Thoroughbred race on the card, a 2000m handicap.
Doug Watson saddles two of the twelve runners with Diwaan, the choice of Pat Dobbs, looking a more likely winner than Dr Faustus, the mount of Sam Hitchcott.
“They are both in good form at home,” said Watson. “Dr Faustus tends to need his fist run back but this is probably the weakest race he has contested for us.
