Timeform pick out their three best bets from Meydan on Thursday...

"...with this trip expected to suit, he will take some stopping..."

Timeform on Art Du Val

Heavy Metal - 15:40 Meydan

Heavy Metal was well held on his return over C&D 5 weeks ago, but that was his first start for 10 months and he was unable to take up his customary front-rank position having broken averagely from the stalls. He is narrowly selected to bounce back in a race he landed 12 months ago. Kimbear and Secret Ambition can also get in the shake-up.

Art Du Val - Meydan 16:15

Having created a very favourable impression on debut at Sandown, Art Du Val didn't do a lot wrong when runner-up in listed company at Deauville in October, and with this trip expected to suit, he will take some stopping. Victory Command stood up well to a robust 2-y-o campaign and will find this test far more suitable than the race he contested on dirt recently.

Mountain Hunter - Meydan 18:00

Mountain Hunter won a handicap on his second start at Meydan last year (off 2 lb lower) so better is expected now with his reappearance under his belt. His stablemate Red Galileo may emerge as the biggest threat, with Appeared making each-way appeal at a bigger price.
