DOUBLE: Rizeena and Soft Falling Rain.
Rizeena can confirm herself as a leading contender for next year's 1000 Guineas with victory in the Shadwell Fillies' Mile at Newmarket on Friday.
Clive Brittain's juvenile won the Queen Mary over five furlongs at Royal Ascot but there appears to be little doubt that she will stay another three furlongs, even at this early stage of her career.
Brittain had the option of running his stable star in the Cheveley Park over six furlongs on Saturday but despite this looking the easier option, it also looks the right one.
If there is one slight negative it is that this will be Rizeena's eighth start of a busy campaign which has also taken in trips to France and Ireland, but there was no sign of it catching up with her when she ran out an impressive winner of the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh, readily beating Albany winner Kiyoshi.
Since her debut she has met with two other defeats, behind Lucky Kristale in the Duchess of Cambridge when the ground was too quick and against the colts in the Prix Morny when she would have finished much closer but for missing the break.
Godolphin have a great record in this and Ihtimal has to be respected but Rizeena looks in a different class.
Soft Falling Rain will rate a completely different proposition in the Nayef Joel Stakes for South Africa's champion trainer Mike de Kock.
One of the stars of the Dubai Carnival, he was unbeaten until his British debut when he had his first run in nearly six months.
He went to Newbury for the Hungerford Stakes and was beaten by John Gosden's Gregorian which is hardly top-class form.
However, seven furlongs is short of his best and he was entitled to be rusty. To his credit he actually stuck on gamely once passed.
Work-watchers have suggested he will live up to the hype with that run under his belt.
It is well documented that Roger Varian's stable have bounced back from being under the weather in fantastic style and he could nearly win with the stable cat at present.
But that is not the only reason for thinking Lanansaak is worth following in the Shadwell International Stallions Rosemary Stakes.
Having won on her debut at two she disappointed in a conditions event on her only other outing and then a quarter crack kept her off the track until earlier this month.
She showed she was better than a handicapper though when making a mockery of her mark of 82, despite not looking entirely straightforward.
There is nothing in this field than will have Varian fearing the worst, because despite Purr Along and Maureen being two likeable fillies they are definitely beatable.
David O'Meara's decision to skip the Cambridgeshire with Chancery can pay off when the former bumper horse takes in the Mawatheeq Godolphin Stakes.
He was quietly fancied in some quarters for some of the big handicaps but his shrewd handler possibly felt the nine-furlong trip of the Cambridgeshire may have been a bit sharp for him.
He finds himself over a mile and a half here, a trip he has been successful over twice already this season.
Sir Michael Stoute's Radiator won a Lingfield maiden by 15 lengths and while at the time it looked a weak affair, the runner-up was fourth in a sales race last week.
She reappears in the Aqlaam Oh So Sharp Stakes and is worth following until beaten.
Sir Mark Prescott's Big Thunder may improve for the step up to a mile and three-quarters in the Vale UK Handicap at Haydock.
Archibald Thorburn sets a fair standard in the Brian Oliver's 80 And Still Gambling Maiden Stakes at Wolverhampton.
At Worcester, Civil Unrest gets the nod in the Download Our iPhone App Handicap Chase.
