Military Law draws gate 10 for $20 million Saudi Cup
Military Law comes into the race on the back of his triumph in Round 1 of the Group 2 Al Maktoum Challenge
Emirati trainer Musabbeh Al Mheiri reckoned it was not too bad a draw after his charge Military Law drew a wide gate for the $20 million Saudi Cup, which will be held on Saturday night.
The post position draw was held in Riyadh late on Wednesday night and Military Law, the six-year-old from Dubawi, will break from stall 10 in the 1800 metres at the King Abdulaziz Racecourse.
"Not too bad,” Al Mheiri said about the draw.
“In three, four or five would be good, but 10 is not bad. He can’t go too fast anyway (early). When you have luck, God gives it to you,” the Emirati added.
Military Law comes into the race on the back of his triumph in Round 1 of the Group 2 Al Maktoum Challenge during the Dubai World Cup Carnival at Meydan.
He goes up against the likes of American contenders Knicks Go, winner of the Group 1 Pegasus World Cup and the Group 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile, as well as Charlatan, winner of the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes.
Knicks Go has drawn gate 5, while Charlatan, trained by Bob Baffert, will break from stall 9.
