Bosra will miss Dubai World Cup

Henry Cecil is to resist running Bosra Sham in the $4m Dubai World Cup to concentrate her campaign on Europe this season. The filly's emphatic defeat of Halling in last year's Champion Stakes earned her a higher rating than any other European or North American performer over the World Cup distance in the International Classifications. But even without her, the mile and a quarter dirt-track contest is still guaranteed top-class representation with the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner, Helissio, already acclimatising in Dubai.

British hopes are expected to be carried by Bijou D'Inde, also already in Dubai, as well as Singspiel and Even Top.
