It's a bit of a blustery morning in Dubai, with the skies looking overcast – although fortunately it looks like there won't be any rain during today's Dubai World Cup.

Last year saw perfect hat weather - sunny and breezy - with temperatures peaking at about 35°C at noon, and the rest of the day ranging from 29°C-33°C.

That was a pleasant change from the year before, when an unfortunate downpour of torrential rain soaked the crowds.

Today, apart from the wind, forecasters say it's set to be a mix of sun and clouds.

Expect highs of 34°C at lunchtime, while in the evening the temperatures will drop down to approximately 30°C.

The Dubai World Cup was set up by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and owner of Goldophin and Darley Stud – a massive player in the world’s leading horse racing and breeding operations.

The first race was held at the now defunct Nad Al Sheba Racecourse in 1996 when it was won by the legendary US star Cigar, ridden by Jerry Bailey.

The jockey holds the title for the most wins in the race, as he went on to win it three more times. The race has been held at Meydan since 2006.
