2024 Dubai Gold Cup Betting Odds at Meydan racecourse

Saturday, 30 March 2024

The bookies make the Dubai Gold Cup a wide open betting heat and that’s great news for each-way backers who are looking to land some of the value. Tower Of London is trading as the current favourite and the Aidan O’Brien-trained runner was able to win in a strong field of fourteen horses at Riyadh in February.

Perhaps this is the horse to back this time around, with Trawlerman also contending to be favourite and Siskany is another runner who has been priced up as one of the market leaders. The 3,200 metre course means that it’s a tough test of stamina and we can’t rule out Eldar Eldarov who is also set to line up here.

2024 Dubai Gold Cup Tips

The Dubai Gold Cup is set to be an exciting spectacle this year and there’s plenty of talk over whether Tower Of London can land a victory. His latest effort was a victory in Riyadh where the horse was able to fend off a tough field to claim the spoils. Sent off as the 7/4 favourite in the Longines Red Sea Turf Handicap, there was a victory by a head.

That came after a previous run at The Curragh where the Aidan O’Brien-trained charge finished ninth in a field of thirty horses, with the 15/8 favourite unable to make the right impression in the Irish Cesarewich. The runner also put up a decent showing to finish fourth out of eight horses in the St Leger Stakes.

However, this race takes some winning and perhaps Trawlerman can land a fourth consecutive victory for John & Thady Gosden. The horse has scored successes in England thanks to running well at Salisbury, Newmarket and Ascot, with the bookmakers having shortened this runner’s odds for the Dubai Gold Cup.

The latest success was by a neck in the British Champions Long Distance Cup where Frankie Dettori was able to give the horse a tremendous spin. It was an unexpected success to beat Kyprios by the tightest of margins and this came after a facile success at Newmarket. Siskany is the other horse that has to be respected at the prices.

Opry looks to have the credentials to run a big race when it comes to the Dubai Gold Cup, with the horse having finished third last time out. Trained by George Papaprodromou, there is going to be plenty of respect from the bookmakers when it comes to a runner who was able to finish third in the San Marcos Stakes over one mile and two furlongs on firm ground.

Frankie Dettori gave the horse a tremendous spin on that occasion and there had been an enormous break since his previous run, with injury preventing the runner from featuring for nearly two years. The $1 million Dubai Gold Cup is a clear target and there have been earnings of around $70,000 since being claimed.

Subjectivist could be set for a dramatic return to the track after a disappointing performance at Riyadh following an absence of nearly two years. The horse won the Ascot Gold Cup on 17 June although the horse badly flattered to deceive when finishing second last in the Longines Red Sea Handicap over one mile and seven furlongs.
