Cross Counter became the first British-trained horse in history to win the Flemington showpiece last November and despite having been off the track since, he was the 7-4 favourite for his Dubai debut in the hands of William Buick. The Dubai-based stable were quietly confident Thunder Snow could enter the record books by successfully defending his crown.

Christophe Soumillon was the jockey leading them to a second win in as many years on horse Thunder Snow.

"I'd like to take him to America and go to the likes of New York, Saratoga, Santa Anita", Godolphin's longest serving trainer said.

"And thanks to Thunder Snow because without him I would not be able to do these kind of things".

The ceremony was attended by HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, Wife of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Khalifa Saeed Sulaiman, Chairman of Dubai Protocol and Hospitality Department, Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman and CEO of Meydan Group, Sheikhs, owners and trainers.

On Saturday, the race will take place for the 24th time.

He went on to finish third in the Cup, three lengths adrift of victor Cross Counter. Today I had to fight hard as when I came to the turn, the two horses in front were going better than me.

"Thunder Snow ran big races in (the US) past year as well and it is brilliant to win the Dubai World Cup again".

"This is also a great result for Sheikh Mohammed, for Godolphin, and horse racing worldwide - to see a attractive horse, who is famous throughout the world, win the Dubai World Cup again".
