Vision D'Etat has been given the green light to run in today's Dubai World Cup. The Eric Libaud-trained five-year-old had been a slight doubt for the race after Emirates Racing Authority officials called for the horse to be examined this morning. Vision D'Etat has, however, now been passed fit for the $10 million showpiece at Meydan. Gerard Bush, the chief steward of the Emirates Racing Authority, said: "The Emirates Racing Authority today examined Vision D'Etat, trained by Eric Libaud, who is declared for race eight at Meydan on the 27th of March 2010. "The horse has been passed fit by the veterinary officer and is deemed suitable to race." Vision D'Etat, four times a Group One winner, is among the favourites for today's big race. *PA Sport
