Musir will line-up in round three of the Maktoum Challenge at Meydan Racecourse tomorrow night after Bold Silvano, the Dubai World Cup favourite, was found to have a bruised foot.

Mike de Kock, the South African trainer, was keen to keep both of his Dubai World Cup prospects apart on Meydan’s lucrative Super Thursday card but the injury has forced his hand.

Bold Silvano gained strong favouritism for the world’s richest horse race when sauntering to a stunning success in round two of the Maktoum Challenge on February 3.
