Ruler Of The World has a chance to make up for a narrow defeat at Ascot late last year, with the 4-year-old colt installed as favorite to win Saturday's $10 million Dubai World Cup, the world's richest horse race.InHowever, the Irish-bred son of Galileo was made 4-1 favorite for the 19th running of the 2,000 meter Dubai World Cup despite returning from a five-month layoff and the fact that it will be his first run on a synthetic tapeta surface. Sixteen runners, including nine Group 1 winners, from eight countries will compete for the prized golden trophy in front of an expected crowd of 60,000 in what connections see as an open contest.However, no American horses are participating this year despite Animal Kingdom's success in 2013 . More race mileage may give an edge to Hong Kong-trained runners such as Irish-bred Military Attack, who won the Hong Kong Gold Cup by three lengths in a blazing finish last month for the second year in a row.
