Nad Al Sheba: Local stars Big City Man, trained by Jerry Barton, and Diabolical, running the all blue Godolphin flag, are going to face tough competition from abroad in the Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) on Saturday.
A straight dash, so often dominated by North Americans, has this year lured California’s fastest filly Indian Blessing to Dubai, alongside fellow Grade Grade One winner Black Seventeen, French champion Marchand d’Or and the talented Irish speedster Lucky Quality.
