Betting Tip: 4.45pm Meydan – Arrogate at 2/5 (1.40) with William Hill

Juddmonte Farms’ superstar Arrogate is set for history in Saturday’s $10 million Dubai World Cup at Meydan, where he stands to become not just a world champion racehorse but North America’s all-time highest earning horse too.

William Hill bookmakers make Bob Baffert’s four-year-old phenomenon a 2/5 favourite to win the race and while it is a short price, this horse is very much the standout performer in the line up.

In last year’s World Cup, California Chrome achieved that distinction – and set the about 1 1/4-mile track record of 2:01.83.

When Arrogate beat the great champion California Chrome in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, the baton appeared to be passed to racing’s newest superstar, a powerful son of Unbridled Song who wears Khalid Abdullah’s famous green, white and pink silks.

Superiority over “Chromie” was confirmed in the $12 million Pegasus World Cup on January 28th of this year, where Arrogate absolutely hosed up in track-record time, with California Chrome finishing a tame ninth for his final career race.

Now Arrogate brings his six-race winning streak into the Dubai World Cup at Meydan, in a race which he will be very very difficult to beat.

If he performs up to expectations the $6 million winner’s cheque would boost his bankroll to a North American record $17,084,600, well surpassing California Chrome’s total of $14,752,650.

Gun Runner is a winner of his last two starts and has seemingly strong each way claims under regular jockey Florent Geroux. He’s about 10/1, while Mike De Kock’s Mubtaahij is around 15/2 with William Hill and also has lots of solid form.

But this is likely to be the Arrogate show and whether he is in an acca or you’re brave enough to bet on the nose, he appears to be a very solid favourite.

Dubai World Cup night will be shown live on Attheraces and Racing UK and is one of the most exciting and high class racecards anywhere in the world and for fans of flat racing is very much on the “unmissable” list!
