England: Dabyah's proven form on course may be key in Dubai Duty Free Stakes

Alternate title: 
England: Dabyah's proven form on course may be key

Local experience may help Dabyah win the first stakes of her career in Saturday’s Group 3 Dubai Duty Free Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Newbury Racecourse in England.

The $76,800 Dubai Duty Free at seven furlongs on turf is a key prep for the Group 1 English 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 7, a race in which Dabyah was listed as a 12-1 shot with British bookmakers as of Thursday.

Magic Legend may have advantage in Nam Long Shan 'Cap

Hong Kong Jockey Club
Magic Legend has won all three of his starts at Sha Tin this year.

Magic Legend, unbeaten in three starts this year, is rising in prominence on the Hong Kong circuit.

Strathmore, who was group stakes-placed in Hong Kong in 2016, and Racing Supernova, the winner of a rich handicap in December, seem headed in the opposite direction.

The three Australian-bred geldings meet for the first time in Monday’s $225,152 Nam Long Shan Handicap at six furlongs on turf at Sha Tin Racecourse, part of a 10-race post-Easter program.

Fan Dii Na risks perfect record against males in Satsuki Sho

The Oka Sho, Japan’s version of the 1000 Guineas for 3-year-old fillies, was contested last weekend at Hanshin, and Fan Dii Na wasn’t part of it. No, this is a filly of such promise that her connections will instead try her Sunday at Nakayama in the Group 1 Satsuki Sho, the Japanese 2000 Guineas.

Fan Dii Na faces males for the first time but has gained enough of a following that she’s the solid favorite to become the first female winner of the race since 1948.
