Adjudi Mitsuo, Japan's challenger for the US$6,000,000 Dubai World Cup (Gr.I), sponsored by Emirates Airline, went through his final piece of work prior to Saturday's race.
Adjudi Mitsuo, a four-year-old son of Adjudicating, worked over 1,000 metres under the Nad Al Sheba lights in the early horse of Tuesday morning. Partnered by work rider Yuta Sato, the Masayuki Kawashima-trained colt was clocked at 49.41s for the final 800 metres and quickened to cover the final 200 metres in 23.35s.
After the work Kawashima said, “He looks and is working even better than he did before the JBC Classic (Gr.I) (in which he finished second to Admire Don) and the Tokyo Daishoten (Gr.I) (which he won by three lengths on his last outing in December.”
Adjudi Mitsuo, who will be ridden by Hiroyuki Uchida, will be Japan's twelfth runner in the Dubai World Cup, their best result came in 2002 with the runner-up To The Victory.
