Mathematics - Meydan 14:30

Mathematics has already won three times this season and it's easy to excuse his latest run here from a wide stall. He's better drawn this time back over seven furlongs and it would be no surprise if he could resume progress. The unexposed King Cole is also feared for Doug Watson having shaped well on UAE/dirt at Jebel Ali, but Raven's Corner made an even more encouraging debut for this yard here last month and could well prove the main threat.

Noah From Goa - Meydan 16:50

Noah From Goa mixed it with some of the best in South Africa and made a very encouraging debut in UAE when third behind Championship in the Group 2 Al Fahidi Fort last month. He should benefit greatly from that, along with the step back up to 1m. Championship is a big danger despite a 3 lb penalty for that success, for all it's possible he gets taken on for the lead by Gifted Master. Flash Fire and Cyrmic can also go well for Godolphin.

Nathr - Meydan 17:25

Nathr makes his first start out of local handicap company, but produced a career-best when readily winning over C&D last time and it would prove no surprise if he were able to go on again. Heavy Metal had been as consistent as they come before a lesser effort last week, but that came in a Group 3, while American Hope twice made the frame on dirt last term and is 5 lb lower in this sphere.
