Mimi Kakushi lands the hat trick and takes out the UAE Oaks, and her second classic of the season after a mammoth stretch battle with US raider Ami Please.

A small field of seven runners for the UAE Oaks and we had a hot favorite in MIMI KAKUSHI who was sent off at 11/10 to win her second classic of the season.

As the gates opened, Mikael Barzalona wanted to get to the front on the favorite, but Ami Please was having none of it and as they came out of the clubhouse turn, it was the American raider who got to the pace and settled well as they headed down the back-stretch.

The first quarter was quick as they jostled for early position but from then on it was a steady gallop.

Barzalona had taken the favorite back and was content to track the leader in the two lane while Asawer made three across the track just a length off the lead.

Awasef tracked in fourth while Priyanka was a further two lengths back in fifth, while Solaire and Habooba bought up the rear.

As they came into the home stretch it was still Ami Please marginally ahead and as they set down for the drive to the wire, the top two in the betting soon widened clear of the pack.

They went head to head, with Ami Please not giving an inch to Mimi Kakushi on her outside, but as they drove towards the final sixteenth, the favorite forged a length clear to win.

Asawer held well for third spot with Priyanka in fourth but these were nearly 4 lengths adrift of the front pair who were too classy for their rivals.
