2017 Dubai World Cup Carnival study guide
In other words, I’ve got to revisit my weekly wrap-ups to take a fresh look at the principals – and see if my initial takes have held up, or if some revised opinions are needed.
Whether you’ve followed the Dubai action since January 5, or are just beginning World Cup homework, the post-analyses could be helpful to you too, especially since each includes the race replays from the Meydan Racing YouTube channel.
