There's racing at Meydan on Saturday, and Timeform provide you with the three best bets on the card...

Meydan 14:45 - Our Channel  

Our Channel ran well on return here and though he's posted a lesser effort since, he's bred well enough for dirt and his front-running style could be suited to the demands of this track. Nolohay is a big player if transferring his recent turf form onto dirt, while Avon Pearl is a Gr 3 dirt winner back in Scandinavia and a previous Carnival winner too, so a solid bid is expected from him.  

Meydan 16:30 - Jamesie 

Jamesie won a handicap at last year's Carnival and shaped well over five furlongs last time, doing his best work late and strongly suggesting a step up to six furlong is required. He gets that here and this former Gr 3 winner should make a bold bid. None of these can be ruled out with Ertijaal, who won a good race at Abu Dhabi last time, and Jallota, who shaped well after a layoff recently, preferred of the rest.    

Meydan 17:40 - Cavalryman 

It's hard to see past Cavalryman who thrashed his opposition in this on return 12 months ago before finishing an unlucky second in the stayers' feature on World Cup Night. He's since won twice at Gr 2 level in Britain and is no doubt the one to beat. The consistent Ahzeemah ran the selection close in the Goodwood Cup last July and landed this in 2013. He and former Gr 1 winner Meandre rate as the dangers.
