MIKE de Kock is in Mauritius to check on his 2019 Dubai raiding party en-route to the UAE. There are five, Yulong Prince (Surcharge), Royal Crusade, Yakeen, Hermoso Mundo and Majestic Mambo.
Mike reported: “This is the latest my runners have ever travelled to Dubai, they will only arrive in the second week of January and we won’t be rushing them. We have done some good work with them in Mauritius, but we’ll only be looking to step them out on Super Saturday in March, at best. There will be other later options like the races in Hong Kong.”
Former Champion two-year-old Mustaaqeem will be travelling with the Dubai party to Newmarket, UK, and on to the USA to continue his career.
