Meydan Preview - 2019 Dubai World Cup Night, Godolphin Mile

 Mar 29 2019


Muntazah will rightfully go off a warm favourite here after his 10 length demolition job on Super Saturday when he had three of these in behind including last years winner Heavy Metal, and he looks one of the more solid bets on the card.

Doug Watson has managed to get a really good tune out of the horse recently, so much so that it was suggested that the 6 year old would be a live contender for the World Cup if they went down that route. However, Watson said afterwards that he wasn’t sure if he would run out a strong 2000m but thought he had the Godolphin Mile at his mercy, needless to say the trainer is understandably bullish about his chances.

The selection likes to go from the front and even though the dirt course has played fairer this year, those who like to run along on the front still look to have an advantage, albeit it not what we saw last year.

Last years winner Heavy Metal will be trying to become just the second horse after Firebreak (2003 and 2004) to win this race twice, and he did bubble the start last time which ruined his chances as he’s another who likes to go from the front. However he was in behind the selection the start prior when he had the softer run, thus its difficult to see how he turns the form around here.
