In Dubai, triple Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler Dubawi (Dubai Millennium-Zomaradah, by Deploy) added a group victory when 5YO entire Hunter's Light (Dubawi–Portmanteau, by Barathea) scored a 2.75-lengths victory (and led home a stable trifecta) for Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor in the US$400,000 Gr1 Al Maktoum Challenge (2000m) for 3YOs+, over 4YO gelding Kassiano (Soldier Hollow-Kastila, by Sternkonig) & 6YO entire Prince Bishop (Dubawi-North East Bay, by Prospect Bay). Hunter's Light took his record to 9 wins (also including last month's Gr2 Al Maktoum Challenge at Meydan & Gr3 Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock) & 4 placings (including the Gr2 Prix Dollar at Longchamp, Gr3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown & Gr3 Gordon Stakes at Goodwood) from 17 starts.
