2023 UAE Derby Betting Odds at Meydan racecourse

Saturday, 25 March 2023

The 2023 UAE Derby betting odds are starting to take shape and we’re excited to see the final runners and riders who are lining up at Meydan for this Dubai World Cup race. Cairo was the recent winner of the Patton Stakes at Dundalk and Aidan O’Brien will have high hopes that his charge can score over this relatively long distance.

Goraiko comes next in the betting and there are plenty of other chances in the race including Worcester, Dura Erede and Tall Boy. Many customers will be looking to get the best each-way betting value and it will be interesting to see how the odds change in the lead up to the race.

2023 UAE Derby Tips

Cairo is one of the shortest-priced favourites when it comes to the Dubai World Cup racecard, with many punters wanting to back the Aidan O’Brien-trained charge who has previously impressed in many of his runs to date. The three-year-old looks highly progressive and it’s little surprise to see the horse trading as favourite to win the UAE Derby.

It was a facile win at Dundalk last time out although a more eye-catching performance came in the Killavullan Stakes at Leopardstown over seven furlongs when the horse obliged as the 5/2 favourite and the connections will now hope that the horse can travel safely over to the United Arab Emirates before lining up in this encounter.

Goraiko is a Japanese raider with plenty of ability and it’s clear that the bookies are respecting a three-year-old who should be able to put on a good show in Meydan. We haven’t seen the horse run a huge amount, although there was a victory in a maiden race at Chukyo and there was also a win in the JBC Nishai Yusun.
