Timeform pick out three bets at Meydan on Thursday.
"A 4 lb rise is manageable and he's taken to follow up, his tactical speed likely to be a real asset from what is a wide draw."
Fils Anges - Meydan 15:35
FILS ANGES ended last season better than ever and shaped really well on his return over C&D. He'll need a good pace to aim at, but if getting one looks sure to go close for a yard who have an eye-catching record with their handful of Meydan runners. Front-runner Mastermind is less exposed than most and is a big threat, while Dark Emerald who won this last year, is sure to be thereabouts again.
Cool Cowboy - Meydan 16:10
COOL COWBOY has found his stride this term, easily landing a 7 furlong handicap here last time, that day shaping as if a step up to 1m would be preferred over a return to sprint trips. A 4 lb rise is manageable and he's taken to follow up, his tactical speed likely to be a real asset from what is a wide draw. Ross shaped well behind him that day and is a fascinating runner from the other side of the handicapping spectrum, while Munaaser and Prayer For Relief should go well both stepping back in trip.
Udododontu - Meydan 18:30
UDODODONTU stands out here, a progressive sort last year for Richard Guest, he looked destined to make his mark at this level when easily landing the odds in a domestic event last month, form which hasn't actually worked out too badly since. An 8 lb rise for that is enough to get him into this more competitive grade. Carry On Deryck has a similar profile to the selection, this being his debut for Godolphin, while Flash Fire split a pair of subsequent winners when second over C&D last month. He and the fourth that day Boomshackerlacker look of interest here.
