Qué vs Cuáles son

Is there any difference between ‘Qué’ and ‘Cuáles’ in these two questions?

Which days and at what time do they train?
• ¿Qué días y a qué hora se entrenan?
• ¿Cuáles son los días que se entrenan y a qué hora se entrenan?

Ninguna, también podría decirse:

¿Cuáles días y a cuál hora (se) entrenan?

Sin embargo, no la inversa:

¿Qué son los días que se entrenan y a qué hora se entrenan?

Un saludo.

I mostly agree. However, a Mexican would ask "¿Qué días entrenan y a qué hora?" (Notice we lost the "son").

For some kind of reason, I prefer "qué días" and "a qué hora"... they sound like collocations to me, but it may be a pure matter of personal preference.
