Equilateral has opened up his options with an impressive win in the Dubai Dash Listed Handicap at Meydan in his first start as a gelding.

The Charlie Hills-trained five-year-old has not quite lived up to the expectations of connections in his career to date, but that looks to change for the better.

Caspian Prince led for the first half of the race before Waady took over, with the Khalid Abdullah-owned Equilateral waiting in the wings to strike.

When James Doyle pressed the button, Equilateral put the race to bed in a matter of strides and crossed the line two lengths to the good of Waady.

“Ever since he’s touched down in Dubai, he’s taken everything pretty well,” Hills said.

“He’s trained lovely. Obviously we had him gelded, although he’s never been a handful at all.

“We know he’s always been good fresh and we’ll freshen him up for the Group Two Meydan Sprint.

“If we can win that, then we’ll definitely try him at the (Al Quoz Sprint) over six furlongs (on World Cup night).”

Australian Hey Doc, who runs in Friday’s Australia Stakes at the Valley, is also on a path to the The Al Quoz Sprint in March.

Doyle completed a double on Glorious Journey, who led home a one-two-three for trainer Charlie Appleby in the Al Fahdi Fort.

The five-year-old was always travelling strongly and asserted in the closing stages to beat stablemates Mythical Magic and Mubtasim in the Group Two race over seven furlongs (1400m).
