Timeform pick out three bets from Meydan on Thursday.
Desert Force - Meydan 16:15
The ex-Richard Hannon trained Desert Force made an encouraging debut for this yard/on dirt a fortnight ago when third over this C&D and that effort should stand him in good stead in a race where plenty have it all to prove. Heraldic is interesting, being a three-year-old import who has joined a top yard and is bred for dirt, but State Law, a stablemate of the selection, is a proven performer round here and he looks the main danger if ready on return.
Town's History - Meydan 16:50
Town's History was twice a winner for Godolphin from seven starts, including the latest of them at Ripon in July, and given he's very much bred for dirt, looks the type to do well out here for a new yard. Stormardal has won his last two starts, including on return, and another bold show is expected despite an 8 lb rise, while last week's Jebel Ali scorer Sharpalo is considered, along with the Doug Watson-trained pair Active Spirit and Padlock.
Nathr - Meydan 18:00
Nathr was twice a winner here last season, notably by nearly 10 lengths back in March, and left the impression his return here when second behind Stormardal (goes in the 16:50) last month would sharpen him up appreciably, meaning he can resume the upward curve now returned to middle distances. Trinity Force has gone up just 4 lb for a convincing C&D success two weeks ago and remains unexposed over middle distances, while Respect Me has the ability to go close if in the mood.
