The 5th race at Meydan on Thursday January 12th 2012 was the 21:00 Etisalat My Data Plan, which was a handicap run over 2410M (approximately 1m4f) on the turf for thoroughbreds.
The winner was the Godolphon owned Naqshabban ridden by Frankie Dettori, who won comfortably from Jedi in second place, with another 3 length gap back to the Goldolphin second string, Emirates Champion in third.
Jedi had led them round for most of this race, but, once challenged by Naqshabban, had no real chance with the winner, who looked to be a cut above this field.
