I'm expecting Aidan O'Brien to make a flying start to Newmarket's Saturday card courtesy of Sydney Opera House and Magna Grecia.

The former is favourite for the opening Zetland Stakes and rightly so having chased home stablemate Mohawk in the Royal Lodge here last time. There's more to come going up to ten furlongs.

Magna Grecia goes in the Autumn Stakes having been an impressive winner on his Naas debut. The Ballydoyle horses seemingly always take a big leap forward from their first start and he's an exciting prospect who can get the better of another one in the shape of Kadar.

All eyes are on Too Darn Hot in the Darley Dewhurst Stakes but I'm taking him on with Sangarius. The selection is unbeaten in two races for Sir Michael Stoute and I was very taken with his win in a Listed race at Doncaster last time. The dogs have been barking about his recent work in Newmarket and he looks a value bet against the red-hot favourite.

Finally, side with Uber Cool in the Dubai £500,000 Cesarewitch. He's won four of his last seven races, including at Yarmouth last time. He travels well through his races and should remain competitive here despite a 4lb penalty.

Sky Bet: Eight places in the Cesarewitch
