Saayerr - 16:15 Meydan

Saayerr was a Group 2 winner as a juvenile and shaped quite well over 5f last time when drawn away from the main action, while his yard have a good record in these contests, notably winning one last week. Line Of Reason is in good form and probably won't mind the step up to 6f, while Naadirr is well treated if able to bounce back from a poor return.

Tahanee - 17:25 Meydan

Tahanee has shown clear promise on both starts since joining this yard and having been quite keen in a fillies' Group 2 last time, the drop back to 7f could prove the key. Flash Fire is an obvious threat back in handicaps despite giving 4 lb to the field, while Rene Mathis was a good second to him in a C&D handicap last month and can give another good account.

Best of Times - 18:00 Meydan

Best of Times was a listed winner in 2015 and consistently shaped well in handicaps in Britain last season. This 9f trip may prove ideal and he's feared having also been gelded since his last run. Secret Brief and Folkswood both ran well on their return and add to what is a very strong hand for Godolphin, while elsewhere Kyllachy Gala, Hors De Combat and Elleval are worth keeping an eye on.
