Variety Club wins the Goldolphin Mile!
15 Variety Club / 9 Flotilla / 5 Soft Falling Rain / 10 Shuruq
1st-Soft Falling Rain 2nd-Shuruq 3rd-Variety Club 4th-Eastern Rules/Forjatt?
The prospect of seeing the two South African stars, Soft Falling Rain & Variety Club, knock heads in the G2 Godolphin Mile on Saturday is very appealing to me. Soft Falling Rain didn't run particularly well in his carnival debut in the G3 Mahab Al Shimal, but I really don't think he's best suited by racing at 1200 meters anyway, and I would expect Soft Falling Rain to strip much fitter for that run in the Godolphin Mile on world cup night. If she's not already over the top having ran in 3 pretty tough races at the carnival, the Godolphin filly Shuruq could potentially be a big player in this race also, IMO. Her only loss at this year's carnival to date came on turf when beaten by stablemate Certify in the G2 Cape Verdi, but she's been dynamite on tapeta having won the G2 Al Maktoum Challenge Rd. 1 and beating Variety Club last time out in the G3 Burj Nahaar. Should be a very interesting race if the horses that are capable of performing at a very high level in the field actually do so, IMO.

  • paul.nathan.946 · I'm not a soft falling rain fan myself i'm sure my old posts would back that up lol. i agree its an open race its just a shame that the tapeta can take lengths of top turf horses and you end up with some average horses taking out decent prized races and when they hit the turf in europe they struggle grades below the tapeta form i suppose that's what makes the carnival what it is should be interesting all round · 150 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @paul.nathan.946, you're absolutely spot on there. Often horses who run well on tapeta to Meydan are disappointing at best back turf in Europe, though Soft Falling Rain did run well in the G2 Hungerford Stakes & G2 Nayef Joel Stakes last season in Great Britain. I don't know if he would've been good enough to win the G1 QE II Stakes at Ascot regardless of what the ground was like, but there's no doubt to me he was far below his best in that race because he struggled to handle the soft going that day at Ascot, IMO. · 150 days ago
