Follow the link above to get what could be running on Saturday March 29th 2014 at the world`s richest race day the Dubai World Cup.

The Dubai World Cup likely field has 10 Group/Grade 1 winners named and this could be a super tight race with superb performers from around the world, to name a few like The Fugue, Akeed Mofeed, Red Cadeaux, Ruler of The World and Belshazzer must wet a racing fans lips easily.

The Dubai Sheema Classic hosts a good field at this time with nine Group/Grade 1 winners and this includes Gentildonna, Magician, Cirrus Des Aigles, Dunaden and Twilight Eclipse. A supporting race it may be but the Dubai Sheema Classic has always had superb winners like last years Sir Nicholas Abbey, Cirrus Des Aigles returns again to try and win this race for a second time after being successful in 2012.

The Dubai Duty Free has a smaller field but is packed with talent with Dank, Just A Way, Logotype and Vercingetorix the Group/Grade 1 winners. Mshawish and Trade Storm along with Tasaday are proven runners already at Meydan and it should be a cracking race, Blazing Speed from Hong Kong and Tokei Halo from Japan really spice up this smaller field.

The Dubai Golden Shaheen will be fast run race with last years victor Reynaldothewizard and 2012 winner Krypton Factor in the field, they have plenty of opposition with Russian Soul, United Color and Zee Bros performing well over course and distance this season.

The other sprint should be won by last years victor Shea Shea, but the Al Quoz sprint has Sole Power, Joy And Fun, Medicean Man, Ahtoug and Beat Baby also there and they will all press the Mike De Kock favourite for sure.

Calvalryman is looking to retain his crown in the Dubai Gold Cup and is bang in form to do so, however Joshua Tree and Seismos are both Group/Grade 1 winners and lead a bumper likely field including Penglai Pavilion and Ernest Hemingway.

Aiden O`Brien has targeted the UAE Derby a race he has won for the past two years with four likely runners, they are Giovanni Boldini, Michelmas, Oklahoma City and Sir John Hawkins. Long John for Charlie Appleby looks a good chance for Godolphin and a interesting Group 1 Argentina winner is in the field for Doug Watson a UAE trainer.

Soft Falling Rain in the Godolphin Mile will be trying to win this race two years running but has challengers like Variety Club and Shuruq to get passed this year. This could be the best Godolphin Mile I have seen on paper and if all stand their ground it will be a cracking race, Flotilla from France is another Group 1 winner to make the field super.

Look out for the likely Dubai Kahayala Classic field in the near future.
