Dubai World Cup: Storm Mayor in focus
by Geir Stabell / Globeform
Printer-friendly version

A winner of 6 of his 12 lifetime starts in South America, Storm Mayor is a strong contender in a Dubai World Cup (G1) field that is small but oh so select.



This son of Bernstein last ran in December, when winning the Carlos Pellegrini (G1) for the second time at San Isidro in Argentina. He goes well fresh, and he is a true champion.


STORM MAYOR (Bernstein) Globeform 125+


Racing over 1 ½ miles, he beat Shuaily by ¾ length in the Pellegrini, while conceding 4lbs, and had Mr. Fun back in third. The last named had been third also when Storm Mayor won his previous race, the Don Alfredo Lalo (G1) over the same course and distance in November. Storm Mayor was impressive that day, beating Flag’s Boy by 2 lengths.

His lifetime best form, however, was produced three starts back, as Storm Mayor ran out a deeply impressive 8-length winner of the De Honor (G1) over 12.5 furlongs at Palermo in October. He simply crushed Club Royal that day, with Inminente third. Club Royal went on to win a Grade 3 next time out – with Inminente second, and Inminente is a horse who took a Grade 2 in June (by 3 lengths) and a Grade 2 in July (by a length). Inminente’s form also ties in with Flag’s Boy – who was second to Storm Mayor in the Alfredo Lalo. Flags’ Boy had previously won the 25 de Mayo (G1) in May and the Progreso (G3) in Agutst – both times with Inminente in second place.

These formlines are solid, solid, solid... and Storm Mayor must have a good chance of finishing in the top three. He has not run for awhile but he goes well fresh – something that was nicely demonstrated when he outclassed his eight rivals in the De Honor, coming off a seix-month layoff. In fact, that performance indicates that he is at his very best after a break.

His one problem is the distance. While Premium Tap would prefer a shorter trip, Storm Mayor would have a better chance over a longer trip. He is essentially a stayer and he wants a strong pace. In this race, he may not get that.
