15:05 - BLUE POINT

Godolphin's Blue Point is back, and can get us underway in a flying start in the five furlong Grade Two Meydan Sprint.

Winner of the Kings Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot, he followed that win up with a couple of impressive performances, most notably at York when finishing two lengths down in the Nunthorpe.

Was a head second to a high-class rival in this on last season's reappearance, and again has not seen since the end of August.

Will be fresh and is undoubtedly the one to beat from a plum draw.

15:40 - KIMBEAR

Kimbear won the Group Three Emirates Holiday Stakes last year and has impressed on both of his appearances so far, so looks a leading fancy in the Grade Three Firebreak Stakes over a mile.

The 5yo finished second behind North America most recently over the course and distance, who went onto enhance the form by winning a Group Two last Thursday with ease.

Should be well in the mix here for owner Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi.

16:15 - ART DU VAL

Art Du Val looks one of the most inexperienced horses in the Meydan Trophy Conditions contest over ten furlongs, but can prevail under last year's Derby winning jockey William Buick.

The colt itself won impressive on debut at Sundown last year and then followed that up with a close second in the Listed Isonomy Stakes at Deauville.

Now back off a break and seemingly raring to go for top connections he will take all the beating.

Good chances.

16:50 - POETIC CHARM

Poetic Charm was a Group Two winner here last month - going clear by four lengths, and now she steps up in trip for the Grade Two Balanchine Fillies & Mares on the turf.

The 4lb penalty shouldn’t pose much of a problem, and again with William Buick aboard to the steering, she should be at the head of affairs in this small field.

Buick's riding at an outstanding strike rate of 63% in the past two weeks, and will hopefully be able to get across from the widest draw.

Leading contender.

17:25 - POP THE HOOD

Recruited by Doug Watson over the Winter from the States, Pop The Hood can build on his stable debut in the InsideOut Handicap over six on the dirt.

Much was expected of him on his first start at Meydan last month but he failed to impress his new team.

However, with the rust now off and the horse undoubtedly well and truly acclimatised, we expect him to put in a big performance.

So lightly raced for a 7yo, so a lot more to give.

18:00 - ASTRONOMER

The top one Astronomer can take the last for us in the Wheels Handicap over a mile and a half on the turf.

He made his debut for Mike de Kock when finishing a disappointing 11th of 14 here at the end of last month.

He looked well out of sorts that day but now back up to his much more suited mile and a half distance, he’ll be great E/W value.

Big player if on form.
