Best Saudi Cup Bet - Maximum Security


The horse that was first past the post in the Kentucky Derby gets the chance to atone for that demotion here in Saudi Arabia.

Maximum Security is the short priced favourite and looks the class animal of the field.

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 as our Saudi Cup NAP.

2020 Saudi Cup Value Bet - Mucho Gusto


The winner of the 2020 Pegasus World Cup, Mucho Gusto gets an automatic invite into the Saudi Cup after delivering a powerful win in a strongly contested race.

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.
