Mukhadram leaves for Meydan on Saturday as he aims to lift the Dubai World Cup for William Haggas.

The Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned five-year-old will run in the 10-furlong Tapeta showpiece having shown top-class form throughout last season.

He was agonisingly beaten by Al Kazeem in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot and was behind that same rival in the Coral-Eclipse.

Having won a Group Two at York he could finish only fifth to Farhh in the Champion Stakes on ground softer than ideal in October having suffered a setback.

"Mukhadram is in great form," said Haggas. "He flies out tomorrow and I hope he remains in the same form in which he'll get on the plane. We take travelling for granted nowadays, but it is still a major operation.

"We've had horses get travel sick going to Ireland, so going all that way is still a risk.

"He's done all his serious work now and will probably just have a stretch on Thursday. I'm really looking forward to it."
