2021 Dubai World Cup Betting
The historic 25th Dubai World Cup will take place on Saturday, March 27 this year and the field figures to be ultra-competitive.
There’s money to be had betting the 2021 Dubai World Cup, but which contender offers the best bang-for-the-buck while also having a realistic chance of finishing in the money?
2021 Dubai World Cup Odds
As of this writing, Benbatl is the favorite to win the 2021 Dubai World Cup at 3/1 odds, followed closely by Monomoy Girl at 4/1. Swiss Skydive is 7/1, followed by Matterhorn at 9/1 and Mucho Gusto at 12/1. Tacitus and Chrysoberyl are both 14/1, respectively.
From there, Gronkowski is 16/1, Capezzano is 20/1 and both North America and Muntazah are 33/1, respectively. Gronkowski was named after American football tight end Rob Gronkowski, who recently won the Super Bowl in his first year with the Tampa Bay Bucs. The former Patriot is a minority owner of Gronkowski, who finished as the runner-up in the 2019 Dubai World Cup as a four-year-old.
2021 Dubai World Cup Predications & Best Bets
If anyone in this field is going to pull off the upset, my money is on Tacitus. Even casual horse racing bettors will remember the name, as Tacitus finished third in the 2019 Kentucky Derby and second in the Belmont Stakes that same year. He also won the G2 Wood Memorial in 2019, as well as the Tampa Bay Derby that same year. Most recently, Tacitus won the G2 Suburban Handicap in 2020, then finished second in the Grade 1 Woodward back in September. Tacitus has the experience to upset the field on March 27.
Swiss Skydiver (7/1)
If you’re going with one of the favorites, Swiss Skydiver offers perhaps the best combination of value and ability to win. Granted, Swiss Skydiver did finish seventh in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff in November, but that was his lowest finish in his last 10 races. Before that dud, Swiss Skydiver won five races (including three in a row), finished as the runner-up twice and third at the Rachel Alexandra in February of last year. One of those victories came in the 2020 Preakness Stakes and another game in the Grade 1 Alabama.
Hey, why not right? It might just be the year of the “Gronk” after Rob won yet another Super Bowl in early February, this time as a member of the Buccaneers. Gronkowski – the horse – also finished second in the 2018 Belmont Stakes and as previously mentioned, finished as the runner-up in the 2019 Dubai World Cup. His most recent outing did not go well, as he finished 10th in the Saudi Cup in February of last year, but Gronkowski has proved more than capable of finishing somewhere in the money. He might not win on March 27, but he’s a good bet to finish somewhere near the top of the leaderboard.
