Published: 27 March 2013
TWO of trainer Mike de Kock’s 13 runners at Dubai World Cup this Saturday have been priced up favourite in their respective races.
Soft Falling Rain, winner of all six races, is 7-2 favourite for the $1-million Godolphin Mile with London bookmakers William Hill, in spite of having drawn at No 13 in the ballot for starting gate positions on Monday.
De Kock’s other runners in the Godolphin Mile, Master of Hounds and Rerouted, are at 9-1 and 10-1 respectively.
Shea Shea, winner of last year’s Computaform Sprint and champion sprinter in South Africa last season, is dominating the early betting on the $1-million Al Quoz Sprint over 1000m on turf.

“He must have a serious chance, but this is a stronger race,” said De Kock.
