The Dubai Carnival continues on Thursday

Timeform pick out the three best bets at Meydan on Thursday...

"...he is fancied to make another bold bid..."

Timeform on Universal Order

Universal Order - Meydan 15:40

Universal Order's profile is a steadily progressive one, and he showed an impressive turn of foot to score on his Meydan debut 4 weeks ago. Open to further improvement, he is fancied to make another bold bid. Dee Ex Bee has plenty of very smart staying form to his name and is feared for his new yard, along with Dubhe and Mekong.

Good Fortune - Meydan 16:50

Good Fortune was the beaten market pick last time out, but is worth another chance having chased an overly-strong pace that day. Land of Legends progressed well last season and remains unexposed, so is feared most ahead of the rock-solid Firmament.

First Nation - Meydan 18:00

First Nation caught the eye when 2½ lengths fourth of 11 to Certain Lad over C&D 2 weeks ago, having had a less than ideal trip, so he's one to be interested in on these more favourable terms. Simsir is still unexposed and rates the main threat ahead of Certain Lad, who should remain competitive following his 4 lb rise.
