Timeform bring you three bets from Meydan on Thursday
Timeform bring you three bets from Meydan on Thursday

There's racing at Meydan on Thursday and Timeform have three SmartPlays for you...

Doug Watson's gelding, Centrifugal, was too close to a strong pace that day and the return to one mile should be absolutely fine...

Meydan 14:45 - State Law

Year of Glory and State Law finished behind a useful debutant in Cross Grain over seven furlongs here 2 weeks ago and that looks the standout piece of form on offer. Preference is for State Law to overturn the neck difference between them over this extra furlong, considering how much he was gaining at the line on his first start for 14 months. The main danger looks to be Mutahaddith who made a promising debut at Jebel Ali (5f) and this trip should suit more.


Meydan 17:05 - Need To Know

Need To Know was a highly-consistent sort last season and made a winning reappearance at Jebel Ali 3 weeks ago, form which has been franked by the runner-up Mawhub winning at the same course since. A 5 lb rise may not be enough to prevent him following-up. Shamaal Nibras can build on his promising debut effort for Doug Watson last time, while Canwinn placed in this last year and could do so again.


Meydan 17:40 - Centrifugal

Centrifugal made a promising return when beating all bar Street Act in a seven-furlong handicap here 2 weeks ago. Doug Watson's gelding was too close to a strong pace that day and the return to a mile should be absolutely fine. The trip can also help Press Room, who has been too keen over further, while More Aspen was just behind the selection last time and can run well again.
