Arrogate in bumper Dubai entry

Arrogate is one of 168 nominations for the Dubai World Cup at Meydan on March 25.

Arrogate: Could be heading for the Dubai World Cup

Winner of the inaugural Pegasus World Cup last month, Arrogate is one of two possibles for trainer Bob Baffert along with last year's third, Hoppertunity.

The legendary American handler has won the World Cup twice with Silver Charm and Captain Steve.

Mubtaahij, Lani and Highland Reel are also in the World Cup mix.

Aidan O'Brien's Highland Reel has also been nominated for the Sheema Classic on Turf, along with stablemate Seventh Heaven and Roger Varian's Postponed.

Limato is the star European name among the entries for the Al Quoz Sprint with Peniaphobia and Lucky Bubbles flying the Hong Kong flag.

Last year's winner Real Steel could bid for a repeat in the Dubai Turf but 2015 hero Solow, who has been off the track since last March, has not even been entered.

Royal Ascot winner Tepin has been nominated but appears unlikely to run as she recently suffered a bout of colic.

"This hurts the chances of us going over there (Dubai), but we're not even going to worry about it," trainer Mark Casse told the Daily Racing Form.

"Everything had to go kind of perfect for us to make Dubai, and it hasn't. Her work schedule got messed up with the weather and her kicking the back of her stall a couple weeks ago, and now this. Regardless, there are plenty of other races for her this year."
