Jamie Spencer will ride the Aidan O’Brien-trained Cape Blanco in Saturday’s Dubai World Cup at Meydan.
The former stable jockey to Ballydoyle and Coolmore will be partnering the Galileo colt, two times a Group One winner, for the first time.
O’Brien said: “Jamie will ride Cape Blanco and our Dubai horses will leave on Monday.”
Spencer has been linked with a return to the Irish powerhouse following the departure of Johnny Murtagh last November.
However, O’Brien played down the speculation at the Curragh on Sunday by stating he would continue to use “the best available” jockeys at each individual meeting.
