Conditions races are horse races in which the weights carried by the runners are laid down by the conditions attached to the race. Weights are allocated according to the sex of the runners, with female runners carrying less weight than males; the age of the runners, with younger horses receiving weight from older runners to allow for relative maturity, referred to as weight for age; and the quality of the runners, with horses that have won certain values of races giving weight to less successful entrants.
Dabirsim made his debut on 8 June, and won by 10 lengths at La Teste-de-Buch over 1200 metres. The first defeat was down to the jockey (Christophe Soumillon) as he eased the horse at the line and then got beat by a nostril as one of the rival horses (Dragon Pulse) made a strong run down the outside to win on the line. The next loss was also very unlucky as Dabirsim was stuck in traffic and could not get in the clear to make his run.
