Also, group 3 led by the 2020 Bahrain International Trophy winner, Fawzi-Nass’s Simsir, is leading the list of returning DWCC stars, alongside Prince Of Arran (Placed thrice in the Melbourne Cup, 2018-19-20), Certain Lad (G3 Sky Bet And Symphony Group Strensall Stakes winner, York, 2020, 6th in Bahrain International Trophy), Equilateral (Group 1 placed in King’s Stand Stakes at Ascot, 2020), Doug Watson’s –Midnight Sands (2 wins in DWCC 2020, back under Watson’s tutelage after a stint in America) and Suzanne Berneklint’s Plata O Plomo. Including others like Australian Group 3 winner Halvorsen, and Berkshire Rocco who was placed second in the Group St Leger Stakes earlier this year.

Races will be conducted with the consideration of UAE’s rules and regulations with regards to the pandemic, following strict safety measures such as social distancing, full sanitization ad thermal screening of attendees.
