2023 Dubai Golden Shaheen Betting Odds at Meydan racecourse

Saturday, 25 March 2023

Switzerland was the impressive winner of the Dubai Golden Shaheen last year and the Bhupat Sheemar-trained runner obliged at the age of eight twelve months ago, with this being the oldest ever winner of this high-profile encounter. The reigning champion could break his own record when returning to the Meydan track this time around.

However, the best Meydan horse racing betting sites have three favourites trading at a similar price. It’s hard to crab the form of Gunite and the American raider has been shortening for this big race, while Lemon Pop also has the sort of credentials to run well over the distance of six furlongs on the dirt track.

2023 Dubai Golden Shaheen Tips

We are really excited for what promises to be an entertaining tussle in the Dubai Golden Shaheen, with this being a six furlong dash and there are three horses all jostling for position at the top of the betting market. Gunite is the horse that could be the one to beat, with the runner finishing second on his last outing when runner-up to Elite Power at Riyadh.

The horse was visually impressive despite losing out in the Riyadh Dirt Sprint, with over three lengths splitting the front two, with trainer Steven Asmussen hoping that his charge go one better when it comes to the big occasion, with the horse previously claiming a victory in the King Cotton Stakes at Oaklawn Park.

Switzerland was the winner of this race twelve months ago and there could be another victory in the Dubai Golden Shaheen considering that there have been consecutive wins coming into this encounter. The Seemar-trained charge was able to secure a victory in the Dubawi Stakes over six furlongs in fast conditions and obliging at 11/4.

However, a shout needs to be given for Lemon Pop, with the Godolphin horse coming over from Japan with fairly solid credentials. All the horse’s form has come at Tokyo Racecourse, with the runner winning the February Stakes on 19 February and that Grade One success means that the racing betting sites are affording the runner plenty of respect.
