Favourite Arrogate will start from barrier nine of 14 in the Dubai World Cup at Meydan.

The Bob Baffert-trained four-year-old was the highest-rated horse in the world last year and is equal with Australian champion Winx in 2017. Winx was the the 2016 world's best on turf.

Arrogate is odds-on to win the US$10 million race on Saturday (early Sunday morning New Zealand time).

His stablemate Hoppertunity will start from gate 12 while the Mike de Kock-trained Mubtaahij, runner-up to California Chrome last year, will have to come from widest alley.

Baffert told Bloodhorse.com Arrogate had settled in well and his preparation had gone smoothly.
