Angus McNae’s Dubai tips: Godolphin can paint Al Rashidiya blue

  • Sport

The Dubai World Cup Carnival has been sensational so far. I would venture to say the best ever and it is only going to get better and better as we move towards World Cup night on March 31.

The Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park on Saturday produced a tremendous performance from Gun Runner, but bar a massive U-turn from connections he will not be in Dubai for the World Cup, having retired to stallion duties.



Two others could be though. Sharp Azteca will surely drop in trip and contest the Godolphin Mile, while West Coast, who was third behind Gun Runner in the Breeders’ Cup Classic and second in Florida, could also make the trip and is the 3-1 favourite with British bookmakers. Exciting times ahead.

For now though it is Week Four of the Carnival and I have five selections for you.

This Godolphin representative was a successful tip for us when he won the Singspiel Stakes on the opening night of the Carnival three weeks ago and I take him to win again.

The Singspiel brought out the best in him in that he was able to compete on decent ground over 10 furlongs, which is the ideal scenario for him.

He gets the same conditions again and as such will be tough to beat. The Group One Dubai Turf is his ultimate target and this is a stepping-stone in lesser company that he should take in his stride. He is a class act and the 11-10 with Paddy Power is fine.

This sprinter ran really well last week when just touched off by Dutch Masterpiece over 5f and he can go one better over this 6f, a distance that suits him a lot better.

He is in tremendous form at the moment, not just evidenced by his previous run, but by his effort behind Ertijaal on the first week of the Carnival.



In that race he did best of those towards the stands side, winning his group comprehensively. That was a big effort and now in a weaker race over his best trip he can make all the running and win for trainer Fawzi Naas. Be quick because Betfairand Paddy Power go 5-1 and he is as short as 7-2.
