2020 Saudi Cup Best Bet - Maximum Security


The horse that was first past the post in the Kentucky Derby is Maximum Security, who looks set to walk into the Saudi Cup as the short priced favourite.

There's very little you can say that hasn't already been said about this horse. He's got a sensational winning record, can win in different conditions and knows what it takes to deliver on the biggest race days.

We're backing Maximum Security to take out the first ever running of the Saudi Cup.


2020 Saudi Cup Value Bet - Mucho Gusto


The winner of this year's Pegasus World Cup, Mucho Gusto gets an automatic invite into the Saudi Cup.

The horse was brilliant in that win, camping just off the speed before launching a bid for the lead on the final turn before scooting away to record a comfortable win. 

Can Mucho Gusto replicate a similar run? If so he rates well as our Saudi Cup value bet.
