13:35 Dubai Cornwallis Stakes

Quiet Reflection has won two of her three starts with her only defeat being in a Group 2 where she was fifth behind the likes of Besharah and Lumiere. That run was also over six furlongs with both of her wins being at today's distance. She looks head and shoulders above the form that is on offer here today and although a short enough price, she should get us off to a good start.

 

14:05 Vision Oh So Sharp Stakes

Queen's Trust was really impressive on her debut with victory at Kempton where she won going away after a slow start and looks a top prospect. She is a skinny price though for what looks an incredibly open race.

Robanne ran seriously green when winning a class 3 at Salisbury but she won comfortably enough and she would have learnt plenty from that. The extra furlong here is certain to suit and she is a worthy each way chance at a big price.

 

15:10 Dubai Fillies' Mile

A few of these fillies are near the head of the 1,000 guineas betting and the one that takes my fancy is Nathra. She is trained by John Gosden and I think her odds will tumble for next year's show piece after today. She has been mightily impressive in her two runs so far and as long as she is comfortable on firmer ground I think she can land this race and go onto great things.

 

15:45 Vision Old Rowley Cup

A wide open handicap over one mile and four furlongs and a chance is taken on Mark Johnston's filly Kiltara. She won nicely last time in a lower grade but that was her first attempt at this distance and she is lightly raced so there should be plenty of improvement in her. This is the type of race where it would be no surprise to see Johnston land the winner at a nice price and I think she is worth an each way punt here.
