Rileyskeepingfaith wins at Meydan

AHMED AJTEBI brought Rileyskeepingfaith (Mahmood Al Zarooni) with a sweetly timed run to record a 14-1 surprise victory in the Zabeel Mile, the Group 2 highlight of the final Dubai Carnival card before World Cup night at Meydan.

However, on Thursday he was racing over a totally new trip, never having tried in excess of 7f, and also had a wide draw to overcome.
