Dubai team confirmed

03 January 2018

DAVID Simcock has outlined the Trillium Place team for the 2018 Dubai World Cup Carnival, which starts next Thursday January 11.

The stable has always campaigned horses at the high-profile carnival, which runs until the glittering Dubai World Cup card on Saturday, March 31.

David said: “Majeed, Polybius and Singyoursong will all run within the first two to three weeks.

“Majeed is due to be our first runner next Thursday. Polybius will run in a six-furlong race the week after.

“Singyoursong will be aimed at the Balanchine and the Cape Verdi. If she can get some place ‘black type’ that would be fantastic.

“I’m not saying they will win but all three horses will be competitive.”

As in previous years, there will be a second wave of horses that will ship from Trillium Place to Dubai.

Desert Encounter and Sheikhzayedroad are likely to add to the team at Meydan, while David says Lightning Spear is ‘a possibility’ for later on at the Carnival.
