Big race favourite California Chrome has drifted after being handed a wide draw in Saturdays Dubai World Cup at Meydan. The American-trained five-year-old has been aimed at the worlds richest race since finishing second to Prince Bishop 12 months ago.On that occasion, Art Shermans pride and joy was drawn out in nine and he has fared even worse this time around and will have to break from box 11 of the 12 runners having been the penultimate horse drawn. Sherman said: The outside draw is good if youve got the horse and I hope we have. There wasnt too much I could do about the draw.Hes got tactical speed so Im not going to worry about it.Bookmakers Sky Bet eased the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner to 15/8 from 13/8 as a result.The second favourite, Frosted, is a compatriot but runs in the blue silks of Godolphin and William Buick will have to negotiate a passage from stall nine aboard Kiaran McLaughlins 9/4 second favourite.We were hoping to be outside of the speed, McLaughlin said. Special Fighter is speed as is California Chrome (who later drew post 11).We didnt want to go all the way outside. Theres a long run into the first turn which should help us secure position.European interest is represented by Andre Fabres Vadamos who has been drawn in seven.Stable representative Alexandre Olive said: Were very happy with the draw. We wanted to be in the middle.I think hell be alright on the dirt as he was second to Solow on the sand at Chantilly so there shouldnt be a problem.Sky Bets Racing PR Manager Michael Shinners said: California Chrome has been a warm favourite for the Dubai World Cup for some time but his wide draw makes life that bit more difficult for him.Art Sherman has been exuding confidence but were happy to ease California Chrome to 15/8 and were betting best odds guaranteed and a quarter odds on each-way terms for all races on Dubai World Cup night.

Im hopeful it will give us a good position. He doesnt show a lot of speed out the gates so I didnt want to be on the inside and bang in the centre seemed a good place to be, said Watson.Gun Pit - The first horse picked and trainer Caspar Fownes selected stall 3. He drew the inside when he ran second on Super Saturday. We were the first name called out today and were delighted to put him in barrier three. He will be handy, said Fownes.Were looking forward to Saturday night. I can think he can run a very respectable race from three.Hokko Tarumae - The third horse picked out. Trainer Katsuichi Nishura chose stall 8 and said: Were glad to come back here. Number eight is a lucky number. From that post we can break to see what the other horses are doing and position ourselves accordingly.Hoppertunity - The ninth horse out. Dana Barnes, assistant to Bob Baffert, picked stall 10 and said: That was really our only choice - one or ten and so we had to pick outside.Keen Ice - The 10th horse out. Jerry Crawford of owners Donegal Racing picked stall 1.He said: The thing that made it (choosing the rail) attractive was that it was that or the 11 or the 12. We have speed drawn to our immediate inside in the two-hole (Mshawish), so we should have room to manoeuvre and navigate from there. We are going to be first time blinkers so I think that will make him a little keener, excuse the expression.Mshawish - Came out second, and Al Shaqab Racings US manager Bradley Weisbord selected stall 2.Trainer Todd Pletcher said: The track is good on the inside and with our horses experience we know he doesnt mind being inside. We talked to Frankie earlier and his choices were - in order - two, three, four, five, six and one so why not go with his first choice? Hopefully well be in a good stalking position - that would be ideal.Mubtaahij - The seventh horse out. Trainer Mike De Kocks son Matthew selected stall 4.He said: We didnt want to be one but wanted to be on the inside as there has tended to be inside bias through the season. The horse is peaking at the right time and should give a good account of himself.Special Fighter - The sixth horse out and trainer Musabah Al Muhairi picked stall 5.Hes surprised everybody because he has done so well this season. I hope he will do a good job in the big race, said Muhairi.I would have liked to be drawn six because thats where he was when he won the Maktoum Challenge but that had gone so Im very happy with draw five.Teletext - The last horse picked. The owners racing manager Saad bin Mishrif was left with stall 12.I had no choice. I was last to draw so had to take number 12. Had I had a choice I would have gone for six in the middle, said bin Mishrif.

Second-seeded Simona Halep and fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska also advanced on the first day of play at the years fourth Grand Slam, as did former world No. 1 and U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki. There wasnt much drama in the womens draw Monday, as only one seeded player was beaten, although Sharapova was down a break early to start the night session at Ashe Stadium against fellow Russian Maria Kirilenko. The 2006 U.S. Open champ trailed 2-4 in the opening set, then ripped off 10 straight games to complete the 6-4, 6-0 triumph. Sharapova, seeded fifth this year, missed the 2013 U.S. Open with a shoulder injury and hasnt been to the final at Flushing Meadows since capturing the title eight years ago. "I was happy I was able to step it up and play well," said Sharapova, who improved to 17-0 in night matches at the U.S. Open. Sharapova won the French Open this spring for her fifth career Grand Slam title and suffered a fourth-round exit at Wimbledon. She was a third-round loser at the Rogers Cup and fell to Ana Ivanovic in the semifinals at Cincinnati in her two U.S. Open tune-up events. Williams rallied for a 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 win over 43-year-old Japanese veteran Kimiko Date-Krumm. The 34-year-old American claimed two of her seven Grand Slam titles at the U.S. Open, winning it all in 2000 and 2001 while also finishing as the runner-up in 1997 and 2002. She has, however, lost in the second round in each of her last three trips to Flushing Meadows. "Not the ideal start, but shes a tricky player," said Williams. "I think she started coming up with some really good shots off my serve. She just goes for runs, and I give her a lot of credit for winning the first set and really making it extremely challenging." Halep, the French Open runner-up, came from behind to beat 20-year-old NCAA champion Danielle Rose Collins of the United States, 6-7 (2-7), 6-1, 6-2. The Romanian has never advanced past the fourth round at the U.S. Open. "Theres a lot of pressure on me.dddddddddddd Everyone is telling me that I have chances to win," said Halep, who will next play Slovakias Jana Cepelova. Radwanska, the former Wimbledon runner-up from Poland, pasted helpless Canadian Sharon Fichman, 6-1, 6-0, in a mere 47 minutes. Shell next face Chinas Peng Shuai. The 10th-seeded Wozniacki had her hands full on Monday and held a 6-1, 3-6, 2-0 advantage against Magdalena Rybarikova when the Slovak had to call it quits because of a right thigh injury. "Its unfortunate that she had to retire," said Wozniacki, the 2009 U.S. Open runner-up. "It wouldve been a good finish, especially for the crowd." Meanwhile, sixth-seeded German left-hander Angelique Kerber snuck past Russian Ksenia Pervak, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5, and ninth-seeded former top-ranked star Jelena Jankovic subdued fellow Serb Bojana Jovanovski, 6-2, 6-3. Jankovic was a U.S. Open runner-up back in 2008. In other action involving seeds, No. 13 Sara Errani of Italy claimed a 6-1, 7-5 triumph over Belgian Kirsten Flipkens; No. 14 Czech Lucie Safarova handled Hungarian Timea Babos, 6-4, 7-5; No. 18 German Andrea Petkovic got past Tunisian Ons Jabeur, 7-6 (9-7), 1-6, 6-3; No. 21 American Sloane Stephens grounded German Annika Beck, 6-0, 6-3; No. 22 Alize Cornet leveled fellow Frenchwoman Amandine Hesse, 6-1, 6-2; No. 26 Sabine Lisicki of German beat Canadian qualifier Francoise Abanda, 6-3, 7-5; No. 28 Roberta Vinci of Italy dismantled Argentine Paula Ormaechea, 6-3, 6-3; and No. 31 Japanese Kurumi Nara drilled Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak, 6-2, 6-1. Only Spains Garbine Muguruza was a beaten seed on Monday. Croatian qualifier Mirjana Lucic-Baroni pulled off the minor upset with a 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) win. Several other women reached the second round, including Puerto Ricos Monica Puig, Israeli Shahar Peer, Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova and Slovakian veteran Daniela Hantuchova. Five-time titlist Serena Williams is the two-time reigning champion, having beaten former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in the last two finals.
