Dubai World Cup Night Preview Part 2

The richest race night in the world is nearly upon us and here is the 2nd part of our big night preview

We at BetCirca relgiously follow Meydan with a few to finding value on the big night, and we’ve already tipped up Planteur at 25-1 and Hunter’s light at 5-1 for the big race, Trade Storm at 11/2 in the Dubai Duty Free, and Gentildonna in the Dubai Sheema Classic. in this article we’ll focus on the Golden Shaheen and Al Quoz

Mental – Golden Shaheen 4/1 Paddy Power Win
Trinniberg – Golden Shaheen 10-1 Paddy Power EW
Tamaathul – Golden Shaheen 33-1 Coral EW

This is a tough race. Mental is a group 1 winner down in Australia. When reading into the group 1 he won, only one horse has come out and won from that race, the better fancied horses have been ultimately disappointing.

That being said, Mental came to Meydan and won a group 3 as his prep race in decent enough fashion. Is that good enough form to win this race? Quite possibly, but there are dangers to the favourite.

Trinniberg won the Breeders Cup Sprint in a bit of a boil over (20-1). This horse has never raced outside of america, and there is a distinct lack of horses who come straight over from the US and win first time up. Little Mike came over (Winner of Breeders Cup Turf) and was really well beaten on UAE debut. So that is a concern. That being said, he could potentially be anything here, having been placed in 7 out of 10 group races throughout its career.

Tamaathul is a bit of a dark horse, he broke the 6 furlong course record earlier in the year, but then put in some really poor runs after that. I took him out of my notebook, but i’ve put him in tentatively as a small each way shout. He was well beaten by Mental (6th) and then beaten into 7th behind Kavanagh (who finished 2nd to Mental on his UAE debut). So he has a bit to find, but he does come from the back and if they go off too quick, he could well come flying down the outside to grab a place.

Mental is the selection, but Trinniberg could be superb value at 10-1 if he travels ok.

Eagle Regiment – Al Quoz 5-1 Paddy Power Win
Ganas – Al Quoz 100-1 Coral EW

Shea Shea is the most likely winner. Let me make that clear now. He came over to Meydan with a reputation as a multiple group 1 winner in South Africa. His debut wasn’t flashy, coming 7th, but the next race he all but hosed up in a listed race beating Sole Power. The reason he isn’t the selection is the price, 6/4 is too skinny and i’m happy to take him on.

Eagle Regiment is a multiple grade one winner in Hong Kong. 3 wins from 4 starts. There is the obvious question of whether he’ll travel ok, but if he does, he rates as the biggest danger to the favourite at a fairly juicy 5-1.

Ganas will be my token each-way selection. This horse is a complete nutter. He’ll go off at a scroahing pace and will more than likely get tired. His front running antics bagged him 3 races at Meydan earlier in the season before his 4 timer bid was ended by Reynaldothewizard. He’s been well beaten in two group 2 races since then, but this is a bet that if you get lucky and he shoots off at a break-neck pace, then he COULD cling on for 3rd, he’s 20-1 to place currently (each-way part of the 100-1) – which is a fair price, it’s a big ask, but if you want £5 each-way on something, you could get lucky with Ganas
