DOUBLE: Domination and War Command.
Irish challenger Domination holds watertight claims of winning the Betfred Cesarewitch at Newmarket.
Charles Byrnes' tough stayer is hardly a value selection, but it is difficult to pick too many holes in his profile in one of the most sought-after handicaps of the season.
The six-year-old gelding won the Cesarewitch trial by four and a half length over course and distance in 2012, but missed the big one last term as the ground went against him.
There are no fears on that score this time, though, as conditions are likely to be ideal.
Domination needs a brisk surface to be at his best - a point best illustrated by his excellent summer form, which has seen him win two races over hurdles at Cork and a tight two-mile handicap at the Curragh.
He also ran a mighty race at Galway in June when he went down by a head to Edeymi.
The son of Motivator is clearly in excellent heart, but, just as importantly, he is the right age to suggest there is even more to come.
War Command, a compatriot of Domination, can make as big a splash in the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes.
Aidan O'Brien's colt responded quite superbly following his Phoenix Stakes reverse by claiming the Group Two Futurity by a yawning three lengths.
The Royal Ascot-winning son of War Front is already pretty experienced for one so young, which is always a good thing in the Dewhurst, and can further bolster his Classic credentials in what does not look a top-notch renewal of the great race.
The Vision.ae Middle Park Stakes looks particularly muddling this season, but Brown Sugar should at least run honourably for the Richard Hannon team.
Hannon's two-year-old was supplemented for the Group One over six furlongs following a string of stout summer efforts, which included two Group Three triumphs and a solid show in the Prix Morny.
The Tamayuz colt has arguably been one of the best yardsticks with which to measure the juvenile form this term and, crucially, has a fondness for fast ground - not to mention a likeable shift of gear.
Lightning Thunder has achieved much more than most of her Vision.ae Rockfel
Stakes rivals and should take some stopping for the emerging Ollie Stevens outfit.
Her narrow defeat by leading 1000 Guineas hope Miss France in the Oh So Sharp Stakes over course and distance sets the standard.
The Hannon-trained Trumpet Major has a lot less on her plate in the Dubai Challenge Stakes than in recent efforts and should enjoy the return to seven furlongs.
Haikbidiac has already had a big pay-day at York this season, and can make a triumphant return on to the Knavesmire in the coral.co.uk Rockingham Stakes.
An Saighdiur gets the nod in the Coral Sprint Trophy.
Andrew Slattery's representative turned in a big display when third in the Silver Trophy at Ayr last month and is just 3lb higher for that half-length defeat to the reopposing Ancient Cross.
Sweet Amaalie took a reasonable step forwards at Wolverhampton last time and make a successful return to Dunstall Park in division two of the 32RedPoker.com Nursery Handicap.
Pete The Feat gained many new admirers last season and can carry on the good work on a strong card at Chepstow.
Trained by the bang-in-form Charlie Longsdon, the nine-year-old rattled off five consecutive wins in 2012 before finishing third in the Classic Chase at Warwick.
Although his form rather tapered off thereafter, the Follow Us On Twitter At BetVictorRacing Handicap Chase offers a perfect introduction on his first outing since the Cheltenham Festival.
It will be interesting to see how Ultra Du Chatelet fares at Hexham on his first start over fences in England.
Lucinda Russell's French inmate appeared to be crying out for this longer trip of the intu Metrocentre Just Keeps Getting Better Handicap Chase judged by his spin over hurdles at Perth last month.
He already boasts winning form over fences, having struck in his homeland in 2012.
