Banoffe trained by Hughie Morrison and ridden by Kieren Fallon is introduced to the Dubai World Cup Carnival in what looks to be a difficult event, she has run in the Epsom Oaks and also the Nassau Stakes both Group 1`s without much success but ran well at Kempton on the all weather in listed event in November. Should she repeat that form she could be challenging some of the big names in this race.

Daddy Long Legs the ex Aiden O`Brien having his first outing for Mike De Kock will be very popular and Godolphin have two very interesting runners with Charlie Appleby`s Zip Top having her first run for over two years, the yards form is immense and it will be no surprise to see Zip Top powering to the front. However Saeed bin Suroor`s Windhoek has more recent form finishing twice in second place and he could be the danger.
