12:23 – Qatar Prix Chaudenay (Group 2) 1m6f200y

Ryan Moore looks a good booking for the genuine Al Qareem. The Gordon Stakes was perhaps one race too many last time, but he was game as a pebble when just beaten in the Bahrain Trophy, and will be fresh after a break since Goodwood.

13:33 – Qatar Prix de Royallieu (Group 1) 1m5f202y

Moore rides Emily Dickinson here, but I think Perotan is the more progressive of the O’Brien pair, and if you can back her in a match bet with her stable-companion, I’d recommend doing so.

15:25 – Qatar Prix du Cadran (Group 1) 2m3f194y

Hard to oppose Kyprios, but the slight question as to how he will handle the ground means I’d rather back Princess Zoe each-way. She was below form in the Irish St Leger, but beat Quickthorn earlier in the season, and is respected as a past winner of this race.

16:00 – Qatar Prix Dollar (Group 2) 1m1f152y

Addeybb could make a mockery of his price if finding his old form, but that’s a big ‘if’ and preference is for the progressive West Wind Blows, who was unsuited by setting a modest pace in the Gordon Stakes and showed improved form when taking a Group 3 here last month under a change of tactics.

16:35 – Qatar Prix Daniel Wildenstein (Group 2) 7f209y

The Revenant is very much respected, but I’m sure there’s more to come from Triple Time after his recent Haydock win. Kevin Ryan couldn’t hide his admiration for this colt, and he will come on appreciably for the run having sustained an injury in preparation for the 2000 Guineas, for which he was quietly fancied.
