Nocturnal Affair to go one better !

Nocturnal Affair should go well at Meydan on Friday at 12.45 over 5f on the turf track. He was second last time here behind Addictive Dream beaten half a length and this strong traveller looks set to go one better off the same mark, the winner having gone in again off a 5lb higher mark here. Humidor and Internationaldebut can follow him home.
Below is the selections extract from the blogs Master List (see link to page opposite)

NOCTURNAL AFFAIR (SAF) This ex South African gelding joined David Marnane in Ireland on his return back from Dubai and he returned to the track in August 2011 and in doing so recorded 2 wins from his 4 starts winning The Portland handicap in the process off a mark of 101 and looking better than a handicapper. He was then 5th of 20 and a total of 17 lengths behind the improving Sirius Prospect at York over 6f on going described as Good. Finally he ran at Dundalk on the All Weather winning the Listed 5f Moyglare Stakes by ½ a length from Breathless Kiss in a time of 57.70. A horse not lacking in pace he remains on a mark of 105 and he should be capable of further improvement in 2012.
