Dubai World Cup Betting 2021

Last Updated 3 days ago | Commercial content | 18+

The current paucity of racing in many parts of the world due to coronavirus, the 2020 Dubai World Cup is cancelled and will not go ahead at Meydan on Saturday, March 28th, even behind closed doors.

While the racecourse atmosphere may be lacking, the decision not to go ahead means racing fans have to wait until 2021 for the opportunity to see some of the best dirt horses in the world locking horns over 10 furlongs (2000m) in pursuit of a share of $12,000,000 prize money.

Go to Tacitus
Form:: This grey son of Tapit is trained by William Mott in the US. Third in last year's Kentucky Derby then second in the Belmont Stakes, he stayed on to be fifth in the Saudi Cup and may be better suited by the extra furlong here.

Form:: Japanese raider who suffered his first defeat when seventh in the Saudi Cup last time on his first run for three months. He stayed on late that day so may be better with that outing under his belt.

Go to Sir Winston
Form:: Beat Tacitus to land the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes in US last June over 12 furlongs so stamina should be no issue. Very smart performer on his day. Trained in the US by Canadian Mark Casse.

Go to Math Wizard
Form:: Trained in the US by Saffie Joseph Jnr. Won last season's Grade 1 Pennsylvania Derby before finishing a respectable fifth in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Classic. Will be better for recent seasonal return but has a bit to find on known form.

Form:: Third of the Japanese quartet likely to run in this event. Winner of five of his 8 starts in Japan at a high level but taking on international competition for the first time and is hard to assess.

Dubai World Cup 2021 Betting Tips

Since its inception in 1996 when the Dubai World Cup immediately established itself as a major international contest due to the victory of the great US-trained Cigar, the race has been won by a host of star performers. In 1997 Sir Michael Stoute became the only British trainer to win when his tremendous colt Singspiel landed the spoils, while the brilliant Godolphin-owned Dubai Millenium romped to an extraordinary success in 2000 under Frankie Dettori.

Trained by Saeed bin Suroor, (who with a remarkable total of nine wins stands head and shoulders above his rivals as the winning-most trainer in the history of the race), Dubai Millennium was the first of eight winners of the race for the sponsors, who have also taken the last two renewals with Thunder Snow, the only horse to win the race twice.

Dubai World Cup Previous Winners

The international reputation of the Dubai World Cup was enhanced when the Argentinian-bred monster of a horse Invasor stormed to victory in 2007. US superstar Curlin triumphed in 2008 under Robby Albarado for Steve Asmussen, and the next decade began with Brazil’s Gloria de Campeao, prepared in France by Pascal Bary, landing another famous success for South America.

When Japan’s star horse Victoire Pisa added his name to the winning roster in 2011, the Dubai World Cup could safely claim to truly live up to its name.
