Barbecue Eddie picked up where he left off before Christmas with victory in Round One of the Al Maktoum Challenge at Meydan.
The Group Two contest was the feature event on the opening evening of the Dubai World Cup Carnival and Barbecue Eddie proved the star turn under Dane O'Neill.
A winner at the track in November and December, the eight-year-old sat on the heels of the pacesetters before starting to make his move at the top of the straight. Out Of Bounds proved very game and kept finding for pressure but O'Neill got an excellent tune out the Doug Watson-trained victor and they were clearly on top at the line.
Rutland Boy and the well-regarded Fulbright dead-heated for third.
Godolphin may have been out of luck in the feature event but the team already had two wins in the bag from earlier on the card.
Silvestre De Sousa partnered both winners, kicking off with Royal Emperor in the Longines Prima Luna Handicap. He led home a one-two-three for trainer Saeed bin Suroor, with Kassiano second and Start Right in third.
De Sousa and Bin Suroor then combined with Sharestan who ran out a cosy four-length winner of the Al Rashidiya Trial. The five-year-old was making his Godolphin debut having won the Irish Lincolnshire and two Listed events for John Oxx last term.
Irish trainer Ger Lyons was quick off the mark as Lily's Angel struck gold in the Longines Saint Imier Handicap, while Paul Hanagan partnered Fityann to victory in the Longines Dolce Vita Handicap for retained owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum.
Le Drakkar swooped late and fast down the outside to claim the closing Longines Master Collection Moon Phase under Tadhg O'Shea.
