Oli Bell is sticking with the teak-tough Laurens in Saturday's Group One contest at Newmarket - check out his four best bets.
Oli Bell: Saturday Yankee
Limato (3.00 Ascot)
Gilgamesh (3.35 Ascot)
Indian Tygress (2.05 Newmarket)
Laurens (3.15 Newmarket)
The money has come pouring in for French challenger Wind Chimes ahead of Saturday's Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket, but I'm staying loyal to Laurens, who has become a firm favourite throughout her three-year-old campaign.
It's easy to forget that she won the Fillies' Mile last season and she's basically a Group One animal through and through, and this looks a fantastic chance for her to back up her Matron Stakes victory over Alpha Centauri.
Earlier on the same card, Indian Tygress can keep up the good work for James Fanshawe. The trainer always has his horses in top shape come this time of the year and this filly looked a horse to following when winning at Kempton. George Wood gets a good tune out of her and I suspect her revised mark of 83 isn't enough to stop her.
It's great to see Limato back enjoying himself with two recent Listed wins and while he's never going to scale the Group One heights again, the Bengough Stakes at Ascot is his for the taking if he's really back to something close to his July Cup-winning best.
Gilgamesh gets the nod in the Challenge Cup having returned to form with a good second at Newmarket last month. He's not obviously ahead of the handicapper but he sneaks in here under a low weight and George Scott has been aiming at this event for a little while.
