The end of the Dubai carnival is fast approaching and Boylesports has installed the Godolphin owned Cavalryman as the 3/1 favourite to land the Dubai Gold Cup.
Willie Mullins will be hoping that his transatlantic stable star Simenon can reverse the form having finished fifth to Cavalryman last time out at Meydan. Simenon is installed at 5/1 and Boylesports can already report support for the seven year old son of Marju.
Another Irish contender is Ernest Hemingway who was last seen finishing sixth to Voleuse De Coeurs in the Irish St Leger and the Aidan O’Brien five year old has been installed at 6/1 to get back to winning ways.
Mick Halford has already had a tremendous few weeks at the Meydan track and he will be hoping that Certerach (16/1) can run another big race having finished third to Cavalryman last time out.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “We introduced Simenon at 5/1 on Tuesday evening and we have already seen support for the Willie Mullins trained horse and judging by the demand in the past few hours we may just have to shorten the 5/1.”
He added “Cavalryman was very impressive last time out when recording a five and a half length win and our traders have kept him on our side as he is sure to improve even more.”
