UPDATE! Dubai World Cup: everything you need to know as Mystic Guide shows the way for Godolphin


UAE: Putative final fields have been released for the Dubai World Cup card behind closed doors at Meydan on Saturday March 27 with a cast of 14 G1 winners involved across the nine races (including one race for Purebred Arabians).

The 25th Dubai World Cup raceday is set to feature a total of 117 horses from 11 countries chasing a total of $26.5m split between six G1 and three G2 contests.

Mystic Guide, one of the Godolphin runners in the Dubai World Cup alongside Magny Cours and Gifts Of Gold, heads the market for a $12m event also featuring US-trained trio Jesus’ Team, Sleepy Eyes Todd and Title Ready plus Japan’s Chuwa Wizard.

However, the highlight looks to be the $5m Dubai Sheema Classic, in which Saudi Cup hero Mishriff reverts to turf against top-class Japanese racemares Chrono Genesis and Loves Only You, US turf champ Channel Maker and Hong Kong Vase hero Mogul.
