Dubai World Cup Offers

The Dubai World Cup

Since 1996, the Dubai World Cup has become increasingly important to horse breeders, trainers, and of course, those of us who like to place a bet or two on our four-hooved friends.

Global racing stars head to the UAE for the Dubai World Cup on March 29 and you’ll find plenty of bookies with free bets on this Group 1 flat race. If you’ve got a favourite runner, then make sure you claim a free bet before betting on this prestigious race!

The Dubai World Cup's flagship race for 2014 carries a purse of $10 million, making it the richest horse race in the world - and the one most riders want to win too!

Held at the Meydan racecourse, horses aged four and upwards are attracted from the Northern Hemisphere, while horses aged three and up are invited to head to the UAE from the Southern Hemisphere. With the cream of the crop running it’s no wonder bookies offer such great free bets and betting odds on the outcome!

Dubai World Cup Nominations

There have been 341 nominations for the 2014 Dubai World Cup, with current favourite Game on Dude, a 6 year old Dark Bay Gelding trained by Bob Baffert. Best odds are currently offered by Coral at 5/1. 

Decent odds are being offered on quite a few Irish potential runners this year. Aiden O’Brien’s Chestnut Colt, Ruler of the World is a favourite, with William Hill offering best odds at 8/1.

Plus, claim the William Hill free bet offer for new customers and you could win £200 if you bet £25 and Ruler of the World succeeds and does win the 2014 Dubai World Cup!

Other strong contenders from the Aiden O'Brien stable include Magician (8/1 odds) and Kingsbarns (12/1 odds). Betfair offers Military Attack, a 5-year-old Bay Gelding trained by J Moore, at odds of 12/1.

Dubai World Cup Contenders

A large number of possible contenders for winning the 2014 Dubai World Cup come from the Godolphin stables, including Certify and Steeler with odds of 33/1 on both.

Godolphin Racing, (owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai) hit the headlines in 2013 after one of the biggest doping scandals in racing history, but that doesn’t mean Godolphin's horses won't be welcome in Dubai: mainly because the Sheikh set the entire race up in the first place!

Ed Dunlop’s Red Cadeaux, who was last year’s runner up, is looking to make a return, while Richard Hannon may field Olympic Glory. US Breeder’s Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man is also looking to enter the Dubai World Cup and could be worth a bet offer or two.

Online bookies betting odds will no doubt change as race day approaches and again when the final list of runners is announced for the 2014 Dubai World Cup.

With great early odds, attractive betting offers and strong bookie offers, make sure you claim your free bet early in what’s set to be another thrilling day for horse racing fans the World over.
