It's another stunning evening of racing in store in Dubai and my main fancy on the card is the upwardly mobile STAR SAFARI (3.40 Meydan).

The five-year-old has been incredibly fragile, having managed just four starts in his career.

But he has bundles of ability, as he showed when winning impressively over C&D last year.

He did incredibly well to overhaul a cannily-ridden front runner having been held up off the pace, and he still looks fairly treated off his revised mark.

He arrives off the back of another lay-off, but he clearly goes well fresh, he's well drawn and there should be loads of pace for William Buick to aim at.

In the finale, take a chance on CHANCE (5.25 Meydan).

The Simon and Ed Crisford-trained five-year-old progressed nicely in the UK last season, ending the campaign with a cosy win at Newmarket.

He'd narrowly been touched off by the smart Ouzo in a big handicap at York prior to that, so he brings some of the best handicap form to the table.

Granted, he takes on some classy opposition tonight in the form of Escobar and Key Victory.

But he's a horse with plenty of upside for the year ahead and, like the first selection, he is a hold-up performer who should have loads of pace to attack from his good draw.
