Timeform pick out three bets from Meydan on Thursday.
"He could easily rate higher going forward..."
Hit The Bid - Meydan 16:15
Hit The Bid looks comfortably the most solid option on the back of a good second in a big-field event over C&D a fortnight ago. Dutch Masterpiece was successful on that same card and a 3 lb rise is unlikely to prevent another bold bid from Jaber Ramadhan's charge, while Eqtiraan has had possible excuses for his 2 runs here recently and could be sharpened up by blinkers.
Zaman - Meydan 17:25
Godolphin's Zaman was runner-up at Group 2 level when last seen in August and will likely take a bit of stopping if he can reproduce anything like that level on his Dubai debut. Tangled presumably didn't take to dirt here last time and is expected to fare a lot better back on turf, while Racing Country showed improved form here, albeit on dirt, a fortnight ago and is unexposed after only 3 starts.
Blair House - Meydan 18:00
Blair House enhanced his good record fresh when losing out only to a Group-class performer in Light The Lights over C&D last month, and he could easily rate higher going forward. Leshlaa, Primero and Banksea all merit plenty of respect in a typically open Carnival handicap.
Win back Hit The Bid in the 16:15
Win back Zaman in the 17:25
Win back Blair House in the 18:00
