MIKE de Kock has won Meydan’s Gr3 Singspiel Stakes over 1800m three times with Mahbooba (2012), Mushreq (2014) and Light The Lights (2017), and he saddles Majestic Mambo in the 2020 renewal at the Dubai track on Thursday.
With the field including the likes of Winx’s one-time Cox Plate challenger Benbatl (Rated a true 125), Majestic Mambo (108), will be up against it and is an unlikely winner, though in a six-horse field he has an obvious Quartet chance being a talented sort himself.
Mike said: “Majestic Mambo is doing well and looking a lot better than last year. He’s had a good summer off and in Dane O’Neill we have a good rider, but all we’ll be looking for is improvement from this run.”
The Singspiel Stakes is Race 4 on a top quality eight-race Dubai Carnival card.
