JEBEL Ali on Friday week staged the first full card of thoroughbred racing of the new UAE season, and all seven races on dirt carried either the Shadwell or Derrinstown name. The feature was a seven-furlong handicap which attracted a field of four, and was won easily by the Sea The Stars four-year-old Mystery Land with Pat Cosgrave in the saddle.

Trained by Helal Al Alawi for Bandar Muwisan Al Otaibi, the Godolphin-bred was maintaining his unbeaten record having won a maiden on his only other start over this course and distance at the final meeting of last season. Mystery Land is the only horse to have raced for the owner to date. Sold as a yearling to Rabbah Bloodstock for 100,000gns, he was purchased for €2,000 at the ERA Sale in September 2019.
