Perfectly timed to lift spirits, a bet on the 2021 Dubai World Cup is the perfect remedy for the blues. This year sees the richest event in horse racing host a superb field and there’s plenty of excellent wagers available. Right now online sportsbook sites in the UAE like Bet365 give Mystic Guide the nod. Not that it has it in the bag. The bookies also give Jesus Team, Military Law and Salute The Soldier short odds too. So, let’s see who has the best chance at that big prize.
For a while The Pegasus World Cup stole its thunder, offering a bigger prize. However, you can now comfortably bet on the 2021 Dubai World Cup having the biggest purse in horse-racing. It’s a staggering amount. At some $12 million for a 2K race that approximates to around $6,000 a meter. Astonishing. So as you might imagine it’s the goal for many an owner, a trainer, and a horse. This year there are some amazing horses running in this blur-speed blitz, but which is the best?
Well, online betting sites in the UAE like Bet365 seem to think it’s a four way toss up right now. They give the shortest odds on Mystic Guide at around 11/4 only just a nose ahead of its rivals. In a spiritual coincidence of naming, Jesus Team is its nearest competition at 3/1. Some planning to bet on the 2021 Dubai World Cup might say this similarity proves breeding stables are all run by the same sort of people. Naturally, this would be a gross generalization with absolutely no real basis.

Well. Until you look at the next two horses you can back if you bet on the 2021 Dubai World Cup. Both getting 4/1 from online bookies in the UAE Military Law and Salute The Soldier are likewise similar in name. So if the spiritual favorites don’t float your boat you can plump for either of these uniform-related rides. Either one has a shot at winning this dirt-run race and that massive prize with it. Beyond that, the coincidences wear off nearly as fast as the odds lengthen.

The odds on the 2021 Dubai World Cup drift after the top four. Magny Cours gets 8/1 with Hypothetical outside it at 9/1 along with Sleepy Eyes Todd. This leaves Chrystoberyl to bring up the rear of the realistic chances at 10/1. Gronkowski, last year’s winner isn’t a great bet on sports in the UAE this time around. At 25/1 there’s a distinct whiff of optimism about it running again, and the less said about 50/1 Capezzano the better. So, we’ll stick to a look at the viable chances.
Mystic Guide Looks Fresh And Ready To Win
Well between Military Law and Salute The Soldier the difference is glaring. The former slumped to a sixth place, albeit in a longer race, back in February. You might think that a warning sign. Meanwhile a bet on Salute The Soldier at 4/1 looks more tempting. It’s won twice over a mile or so in its last two races. That makes it a great bet on the 2021 Dubai World Cup. Why shouldn’t it continue its winning ways? Well of course it has to get by the likes of Jesus Team and Mystic Guide.

Jesus Team is in from the USA and at 3/1 looks a good bet on the 2021 Dubai World Cup. I say looks because it did get beaten into 2nd place last race out. That’s not good. Still, that was back in January and half a world away. Perhaps the Meydan Racecourse will suit it better. Meanwhile, Mystic Guide comes into this off the back of a win following a break. Fresh and in form it’s the best option for those thinking of taking advantage of UAE gambling laws to bet on the great race.
