Timeform pick out three bets from Meydan on Thursday.
Desert Force - Meydan 16:50
Desert Force produced arguably one of the most impressive performances of the UAE season so far when routing his field over C&D last time, and he's taken to follow up despite being 10 lb higher and in a stronger race given such the impression he made that day. Heavy Metal has returned in good form and again should be thereabouts, while Winslow is related to US dirt Grade 1 performers New Year's Day and Mohaymen, and is well worth keeping an eye on making his debut for Doug Watson.
North America - Meydan 17:25
North America impressed when landing a C&D maiden by eight lengths on his UAE/dirt debut for this yard, having left Godolphin in the interim and though the assessor has had his say, he's taken to build on that back in handicaps, with the potential that he could be a bit better than this level. Muhtaram and Moosir fought out the finish to a C&D handicap two weeks ago and should be thereabouts again, with slight preference for the latter who has a 2 lb swing for three-quarters of a length.
Dehbashi - Meydan 18:00
There should be a fair bit more to come from Dehbashi, who got off the mark at the second attempt over ten furlongs here a fortnight ago despite showing clear signs of inexperience still, and he looks on a workable mark now starting life in handicaps. This is a pretty ordinary race, but Skygazer makes obvious appeal given the current heart he's in, whilst Darkening is closely matched with him and Enery may appreciate the return to this track after a couple of lesser efforts at Jebel Ali.
