14:35 Vision Autumn Stakes
Beacon Rock was beaten by a small distance in a Group 2 at the Curragh last time out and that was after finding traffic in running. I'm not totally convinced how strong that form is however and I think there may be one or two better than the son of Galileo today.
Gifted Master has won his last two races in fine style and takes the step up in class that he deserves. Stepping up in trip appears to be improving him so the extra furlong here will surely help.
Ibn Malik for Charlie Hills won his maiden nicely enough before two second place finishes in Group 2 races and beaten by two very good horses. Emotionless beat him last time out and he contests the Dewhurst later on today which shows the level of that form. I think he is the one to beat here today and can confirm how good a race that was.
15:10 Dubai Dewhurst Stakes
A typically small field for the Dewhurst and what appears to be a two horse race. Air Force Blue for Aiden O'Brien is the stand out on the form so far after winning a Group 1 at the Curragh last time out in fine style. His one defeat from four runs so far came on firm ground so today;s conditions should be perfect. I am not sure how strong some of the fields were in the races he won in Ireland were and it will be interesting to see how good he actually is today.
I am massively excited by Charlie Appleby's Emotionless. He won his maiden very easily and then beat Ibn Malik on the bit so he has the potential to be a superstar. The son of Shamardal is the second favourite for next years 2,000 Guineas behind Air Force Blue and I am confident by tomorrow evening he will be a very short price for it.
