2023 Dubai Gold Cup Betting Odds at Meydan racecourse

Saturday, 25 March 2023

When it comes to betting on the Dubai Gold Cup winner, it’s all about finding a horse who is going to demonstrate the best stamina over two miles on the turf at Meydan Racecourse. This is a relatively new race which has been in operation since 2012, with winners between the age of four and seven having obliged in the past ten years.

Opry could be among the betting favourites when the racing odds become available, with a number of leading trainers deciding whether to submit their horses for a race which commands a sizeable pot. Subjectivist was able to set a course record two years ago and the winner will need to look at posting a time of around 3 minutes and 20 seconds.

2023 Dubai Gold Cup Tips

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.
