Coming off a very creditable third at the opening meeting of the season three weeks ago, Au Coeur makes a return to Jebel Ali on Friday, where he will be tackling a new trip.
Having raced solely over 1m or further for Touch Gold, he now tries the straight track for the first time as he takes his chance in the opening handicap over 7f.
We were keen to try something new with him and this looked a good opportunity for us to do just that. It looks a competitive field and certainly doesn’t lack in numbers, though he’s come out of his last run well and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t go close once more. Richie Mullen again takes the rides and we wish all involved the very best of luck.
