Dubai World Cup for Snow Fairy?

Snow Fairy is set to bid for more top honours over a mile and a quarter next year following her breathtaking victory in the Hong Kong Cup.


The Dubai World Cup at Meydan in March and the Queen Elizabeth II Cup back in Hong Kong in May are the among the main options in the early part of next season for trainer Ed Dunlop and owner Cristina Patino.


"We can now obviously think of 10-furlong races at the highest level. I need to discuss with Mrs Patino what we are going to do. The filly is going to come back on Wednesday and have a bit of a holiday," Dunlop told At the Races.

This filly is really on a row. I think after winning the G1 Hong Kong Cup on Sunday at Sha Tin, this filly has eclipsed what Midday accomplished in Europe this season. Winner of the Epsom Oaks. Then dominated the Irish Oaks. A fantastic effort at 1-3/4 against the boys to finish 4th in the St Leger. Then Snow Fairy went to Japan. Where she put on one of the most dominating 12 furlongs turf displays I've seen in 2010. She annihilated the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup field at Kyoto. Skipped the Japan Cup, to ship to Hong Kong. Where she defeated a group of some of the world's best 10+ furlong turf horses to win the Hong Kong Cup. Snow Fairy's only raced once on synthetics. A win in a 6 furlong maiden-auction stakes at Lingfield as a 2yr.old. But if she can adapt to the Tapeta surface at Meydan? She'll be incredibly tough to beat in this year's Dubai World Cup. IMO.
