FRANKIE DETTORI will partner Ladbrokes St Leger winner Mastery in Saturday's Dubai World Cup at Meydan. He will wear the silks of Sheikh Mohammed's son Sheikh Hamdan, with Ahmed Ajtebi in the Godolphin blue on Allybar.

Twice Over (Henry Cecil/Tom Queally), Crowded House (Brian Meehan/John Velazquez) and Gitano Hernando (Marco Botti/Kieren Fallon) provide a strong British challenge as theybid to become only the second European-trained winner of the race following Singspiel's success in 1997.
Mike de Kock has yet to win the race and has both Lizard's Desire (Kevin Shea) and Mr Brock (Ryan Moore) in the field, and, whileJapan have also failed to score a victory, Red Desire, who would be the first filly/ mare to triumph, did win the Maktoum Challenge III on Super Thursday.
France have Gloria De Campeao, runner-up last year, and Vision D'Etat, while Gio Ponti is probably best of the Americans in the 1m2f Tapeta contest.
Spanish Moon (Sir Michael Stoute/Moore), Youmzain (Mick Channon/Kieren Fallon), Dar Re Mi (John Gosden/William Buick) and Jukebox Jury (Mark Johnston/Royston Ffrench) provide a strong British quartet in the Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic over 1m4f on turf.
Last year's winner Eastern Anthem (Ajtebi) is one of four Bin Suroor contenders with Dettori on Cavalryman, third in last year's Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
Presvis (Luca Cumani/ Christophe Lemaire) looks certain to start favourite in the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free as he bids to go one better than last year. Confront (Stoute/ Moore) is the other British hopeful in a race where Hong Kong superstar GoodBa Ba takes his chance.
Finjaan (Marcus Tregoning/Richard Hills), Judd Street (Eve Johnson Houghton/Fallon), Sir Gerry (John Best/Moore) and War Artist (James Eustace/Olivier Peslier) all contest the Group 3 Al Quoz Sprint. The race has been added to the card this year to utilise the new 6f straight turf track.
