Jessica Harrington's fine form with juvenile fillies looks set to continue at Newmarket, according to Ashley Iveson.
NAP: Cayenne Pepper (3.35 Newmarket)
Next Best: Lazuli (1.50 Newmarket)
Cayenne Pepper can provide Jessica Harrington with another top-level juvenile success with victory in the bet365 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket.
The Moone-based trainer has assembled a formidable team of two-year-old fillies this season, with Cayenne Pepper joined by last Sunday's Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Albigna, Cheveley Park Stakes winner Millisle and the Debutante Stakes scorer Alpine Star.
Cayenne Pepper looked well above-average when making a winning start to career at Leopardstown in early June, since when she has comfortably landed a conditions event at Tipperary before running out an impressive winner of a Group Three at the Curragh.
The form of the latter event looks perfectly sound - with the runner-up So Wonderful since finishing a close third in the Moyglare Stud Stakes - so Cayenne Pepper has more than earned her shot at Group One glory.
Roger Charlton's Quadrilateral has certainly looked the real deal in winning her two starts to date - prompting connections to supplement for this race. However, from a form perspective Cayenne Pepper has achieved far more - and she gets the vote as a result.
Shine So Bright is fancied to bounce back to winning ways in the Group Two Godolphin Stud And Stable Staff Awards Challenge Stakes.
Winner of the Free Handicap over this course and distance in the spring, Andrew Balding's charge went on to finish sixth in the 2000 Guineas before returning from a near four-month absence to win a Group Three at York - defeating the top-class mare Laurens by a nose.
He failed to replicate that effort when only fourth as a hot favourite for last month's Park Stakes at Doncaster, but he is certainly better than display, having raced on his own for much of the way and run too keenly for his own good.
Back on a track that clearly suits, he can show his true colours once again.
Lazuli bids to complete his hat-trick for Charlie Appleby in the first of three Group Threes on the card - the Newmarket Academy Godolphin Beacon Project Cornwallis Stakes.
The son of Dubawi was seriously impressive when providing William Buick with his first winner back after a spell on the sidelines on the July Course in early August.
He was long odds-on to make it two from two at Doncaster the following month, but his supporters were made to sweat, as having looked to have put the race to bet with a sharp turn of foot, he wandered late on and was just a nose ahead of Misty Grey at the line.
Lazuli is clearly a horse with considerable latent ability and can prove himself a Pattern-race performer on the Rowley Mile.
Saeed bin Suroor's Final Song - not seen since finishing third to Raffle Prize in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes in July - can enjoy her day in the sun with victory in the Godolphin Lifetime Care Oh So Sharp Stakes.
Fanny Logan has won her last three starts in Listed company emphatically and can successfully graduate to Group Three class for John Gosden in the Darley Pride Stakes.
The William Haggas-trained Hamish rates the best bet on the penultimate day of the season at York.
The son of Derby hero Motivator claimed the second and most lucrative victory of his four-race career to date in the Melrose Handicap over this course and distance in August.
The handicapper has handed him a 6lb rise, but he is open to further improvement and it could be that this softer surface could suit him even better than the fast ground he encountered on his first visit to the Knavesmire.
Many regard Chepstow's two-day fixture as the start of the National Hunt season proper, with the Unibet Persian War Novices' Hurdle the centrepiece on the opening afternoon.
This Grade Two contest has been won by the likes of Reve De Sivola (2009), Silviniaco Conti (2010) and Blaklion (2014) in recent years and Alan King's Harambe could be the one to following in their hoofprints.
The six-year-old already has plenty of jumping experience - having won twice from seven starts - and he was last seen chasing home the high-class Getaway Trump in the EBF Final at Sandown.
