Dubai World Cup Betting Preview & Tips
5.50pm Meydan (Sat) – Talismanic at 9/1 (10.00) with William Hill
With some poor racing in the UK this Easter weekend, many punters will be having a dabble at Meydan with some Dubai World Cup betting action instead. There is some really big prize-money on offer for some of the best flat horses in the world.
So, all eyes will be on the desert on Saturday afternoon as Meydan races hosts another great renewal of the Dubai World Cup festival. The live Dubai horse racing action is being shown on both the free to air ATR (At The Races) racing channel on Sky 415 and also on the subscription channel RacingUK.
Created through the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Dubai World Cup provides a truly global stage upon which the best horses in the world come to compete every year.
The US$30m race day is held at Meydan Racecourse on the last Saturday in March and the showpiece in undoubtedly the US$10m Dubai World Cup, won in 2017 by Arrogate.
Bob Baffert’s even money favourite for the race, West Coast was given a less-than-favourable draw for Saturday’s big race. The four-year-old colt was drawn on the outside in stall 9 out of 10 at the official post-position ceremony on Wednesday.
Second in the Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream, Baffert’s runner will need all the help he can get from his pilot Javier Castellano to negotiate his way past all his rivals drawn on the inside of him.
Our Dubai World Cup Betting Tip
TALISMANIC (nap) presents a great opportunity for trainer Andre Fabre to finally add his name to the Dubai World Cup roll of honour list.
The Frenchman runs Talismanic, the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf winner and based upon jockey bookings and cap colours he appears to be the first choice of the two Godolphin runners in the race.
Thunder Snow, trained by Saeed bin Suroor, is their other runner in the 10-horse field.
Talismanic was runner up to the Aidan O’Brien-trained Highland Reel in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase back in December, then was given a prep race at Chantilly earlier this month where he beat stablemate Cloth Of Stars.
Talismanic tackles Meydan’s dirt track for the first time but connections are confident he will convert to this surface well.
