13:40 Newmarket - Flight

She clearly bumped into a useful sort with experience on her side when second at Newbury last month, and the well-bred Siyouni filly has an obvious chance here on that showing.

14:12 Newmarket - Hard To Resist

She won over course and distance on soft ground last August and went on to run some good races in Group company afterwards, with perhaps her Prestige third at Goodwood the pick of those efforts. Perhaps a mile on quick ground in the Sandringham on her return didn’t see her to best effect, and conditions should suit her better here off what appears a fair mark.

14:50 Newmarket - Qirat

I haven’t ridden him before but he clearly comes in here in good form. His Goodwood success has worked out well and he ran well off this mark when sixth in the Britannia last time, so he has a decent chance.

15:25 Newmarket - The Parthenon

The Parthenon was taken out of the Railway Stakes on the day and he is clearly open to considerable improvement after just the two starts, which included a win over this trip at Gowran last time. He will need to improve to win this but obviously the potential is there.

16:00 Newmarket - Carrytheone

He clearly has a big chance on his third to English Oak in the Buckingham Palace last time. He wouldn’t have beaten the impressive winner, but with a better run through – he had to wait a long time to get a run up the rail – he would have probably finished a good second. Off the same mark here, he should give a good account of himself.

16:35 Newmarket - River Tiber

Given the promise of his reappearance run in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, you have to say he was well below par in the Jersey Stakes last time but he is a horse who has always shown a lot of pace, and hopefully this test will suit him. A Coventry winner, he went on to be placed in the Morny and Middle Park, and he has to have a fair chance in here if bringing his Classic form to the table here. He certainly has the Group 1 class to go close.

17:10 Newmarket - Ciro Di Marzio

This well-bred Justify colt shaped promisingly under a penalty in a novice here last month and a mark of 87 looks fair, if not generous, on that effort. You would hope there is more in the locker after just three starts, and the longer trip could well suit, with the dam, who I rode, having won over 1m4f for Aidan and who went on to win in Group 3 company.
