Saudi Cup Preview (Sat 26th Feb 2022)

The USD$20m Saudi Cup, the highlight of the weekend, is a global Group 1 flat race held over 1800m and is the richest race in the world.

Won in 2021 by HRH Prince Abdul Rahman Al Faisal’s global superstar, Mishriff, now one of the most famous horses in the world, The Saudi Cup is beamed into more than 350million homes worldwide.

It is shown in every corner of the globe from the USA and Europe to China, South America and Southeast Asia. For the 2022 Saudi Cup the Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia is throwing open the gates and inviting spectators to join us at King Abdulaziz Racecourse in Riyadh to witness firsthand the third running of this spectacular horse race. Extra interest will be provided locally by the return of the globetrotting Mishriff, who will attempt to defend his Saudi Cup crown.

As well as The Saudi Cup, the raceday also features five highly regarded Group 3 races on both dirt and turf .

 WEIGHT ADJUSTED FORM RATINGS :

MISHRIFF (122) MANDALOUN (121) MIDNIGHT BOURBON (118)

20 Million dollars up for grabs in Saudi Cup with 14 runners going to post .Last years winner Mishriff has been put in srtong favourite ,though has to overcome tricky outside draw in stall 14 ,however has ran well on both starts on dirt here at Riyadh ,including from wide draws .Has to be respected, though odds around 5-2 look short enough in such competitive race.
 
The American four-year-old colt MANDALOUN has some useful form on dirt winning 6 out 8.Finished close second in Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs last season behind Medina Spirit (subsequently awarded race ) that was top class dirt form with two grade one winners Hot Rod Charlie & Elusive Spirit just behind .Made winning reappearance in his prep race last month beating Midnight Bourbon cosily in grade 3 race at Fair Grounds.Should go well from nice draw in stall 6 .VALUE GUIDE PRICE 4-1 or ABOVE.

Of the others the consistent front runner Midnight Bourbon should be in the mix ,though has bit to find with Mandaloun on previous form .Looks well drawn for front runner in stall 3 .Could take some catching if getting an easy lead.
