Ken Nicol: It’s Super Saturday at Meydan this weekend, and Mike de Kock sends out three hopefuls who will be keen to secure their places on World Cup night come March 30

2017 Vodacom July winner Marinaresco has had two prep runs over too sharp a trip, and now lines up in the Group2 Dubai City Of Gold, where the 2410m should be right up his alley.

He is drawn 9 out of 10, but over this trip that isn’t too much of a disadvantage.

Regular partner Bernard Fayd’Herbe rides, and the $300,000 race will be run at 8:20pm SA time.

The Grade 1 Jebel Hatta ($400,000) is over 1800m, and goes off at 9:30pm our time. De Kock has two acceptors.

Here Majestic Mambo is a very interesting runner. Second in the Daily News and fourth in the July during the 2018 KZN season, he only arrived in Dubai in January.
