Horse Racing betting tips: 10/1 hope can Master Meydan

It's Dubai World Cup night at Meydan and Robbie Wilders from the Racing Post selects three horses to back. 

1.50 Meydan

Cairo @ 11/8
1pt win 

3.10 Meydan

Master Of The Seas @ 10/1
1pt each-way

4.00 Meydan 

Mostahdaf @ 6/1
1pt each-way 

Cairo can follow in Mendelssohn footsteps

Aidan O'Brien has won the UAE Derby (1.50) with some quality horses in recent seasons and CAIRO can add his name to the impressive roll of honour. 

O'Brien landed this in 2012, 2013 and 2018 and it looks significant that Cairo is being campaigned on the dirt. 

My selection shares similarities with O'Brien's 2018 winner Mendelssohn as both landed the Listed Patton Stakes at Dundalk in March before running here, and Cairo ran out an impressive winner of that, never looking in any danger of losing under Ryan Moore. 

Cairo achieved a similar level of form as Mendelssohn as a juvenile and presumably, if this goes to plan, he will be campaigned worldwide in the top dirt races abroad just as his former stablemate was. 

A son of Quality Road, he should be fine on the surface and progress for an extra furlong and a half. 

Seas can master Turf rivals 

The John and Thady Gosden-trained Lord North is out for a hat-trick in the Dubai Turf (3.10) and looked as good as ever with a dominant Winter Derby success four weeks ago to warm up for this. 

The Gosdens will undoubtedly have left something to work on with this in mind, but Lord North is seven now and might be vulnerable to one of the younger brigade coming through. 

MASTER OF THE SEAS cannot be described as young given he is five, but he remains quite unexposed and this will be just his fourth run since his Classic campaign. He is the recommended each-way bet for Charlie Appleby. 

Master Of The Seas clearly likes it at Meydan and shaped best in the Jebel Hatta over this course and distance in January, being shuffled back to an unpromising position from his draw in stall 2 in a race that the first two home dominated. 

This is a better contest, but Master Of The Seas did well in the circumstances to finish a half-length third and he holds Real World, who is shorter in the betting, on that run. 

Mostahdaf primed for career-best in Sheema 

Hopefully, the Sheema Classic (4.00) can go the way of the Brits once more as I like MOSTAHDAF for the Gosdens as an each-way selection to lower the colours of Japanese-trained short-priced 5/6 favourite Equinox. 

The son of Frankel has always promised plenty but appears to have turned a corner this year and his recent runaway success from Dubai Future in Riyadh was right out of the top drawer. 

He looks well worth this step up in class and considering he was trading at around 9-2 for the Sheema after winning that, he is beginning to look real value at a couple of points bigger now. 

Mostahdaf has recorded Racing Post Ratings of 122 on two of his last three starts - the exception was the soft-ground Arc which wouldn't have suited - and another furlong and a half here can only enhance his prospects.
