Royal Delta heads the market for the Dubai World Cup
William Hill have installed the superstar, dual Breeders' Cup winner, Royal Delta as the early 9/2 favourite for the Dubai World Cup.
The hugely talented Orfevre is next in the market at 5/1, with the lightly raced Animal Kingdom third best at 7/1.
William Hill spokesman, Richard Thomas, said, "With the 2013 Dubai Racing Carnival getting underway tomorrow at Meydan, we felt this was the right time to release our opening show on the richest race in the world. Royal Delta showed what a great mare she was at Santa Anita in November, when she made almost all the running to claim a second Breeders' Cup title. Orfevre would be a massively interesting runner if making the trip to Meydan. He has masses of speed and natural ability, but is clearly a character too. Animal Kingdom showed brilliant speed to run second to Wise Dan at Santa Anita, and could run in Dubai before a possible trip to Royal Ascot."
