The first race of the day at Newmarket On Saturday is the Class 2 Nursery Handicap and Zoffarelli for the inform Ralph Beckett has a huge chance.

The two year old colt has been seen four times this term and has credibly on all of his starts with three seconds and then finally getting off the mark last time out.

Having finished second at Windsor twice over six furlongs, he stepped up to seven on soft ground at Newmarket and finished behind a nice type for John Gosden that has since franked the form.

Days: 32

The first group race of the day is the Zetland Stakes over 1 mile 2 furlongs and we expect the favourite Kyprios to blow the field away.

The son of Galileo could turn out to be an exceptional juvenile for Aidan O'Brien having been seen once in his career and he got off the mark straight away.

He raced at Galway over 8.5 furlongs on heavy ground, doing his best work in the final furlongs showing he wants a staying trip and the form of that maiden has worked out really well.

Sir Michael Stoute

Days: 29

One of the most hotly contested races of the weekend as you could make a case for nearly ever runner in the field, but the horse that looks the most progressive is Sir Michael Stoute's Maximal.

The two year old has one of the best form lines of the season having finished second on his first two starts and then got off the mark in a very strong race at Sandown last time out.

On his second start he finished second over seven furlongs at Sandown which has since seen, Maximal, third, fifth and sixth go on to win since.

She was stepped up to a mile for her last start and got off the mark for the first time revelling in the extra distance and she is sure to improve in this tougher race.

Days: 27

The feature race of the entire weekend at Newmarket is the Group One Dewhurst Stakes and we are siding with the Irish runner Thunder Moon.

The son of Zoffany extended his unbeaten run to two races when landing the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes at The Curragh and before that won over the same course and distance in a maiden.

The juvenile took a huge step forward to land the black type event that was last year won by Pinatubo and they are following in the footsteps of the superstar by heading into this race on Saturday.

Off the back of his win he went to favourite for this event and is now battling it out with Chindit at the top of the market, but if running to the same form as his Curragh win he is the leading contender.

Days: 75

The big fielded Cesarewitch Handicap over the staying trip of 2m2f is always a cracking event and with that in mind we have two selections at opposite ends of the market.

The first is the Willie Mullins trained Great White Shark can run a huge race for the yard that has landed the last two renewals of this race.

This dual purpose trained runner ran in this race last year and finished 10th of 30 off a mark of 89 and steps up on Saturday 3lb lower.

He is the yards sole runner in the race and having last ran in July when winning a big fielded handicap hurdle at the Galway festival and winning, his form looks decent if converting it to the flat.

Days: 60

Our second runner at a huge each way price is Vis A Vis for Neil Mulholland and although on the face of it his form does not look the strongest, he always performs well in big fielded events.

He has found it tough going this season which has seen his mark drop to 83 and last season and in 2018 he finished fourth in this race off a mark of 90.

The 7lb drop could make him interesting at 33/1 and he could handle the soft ground better then some of the other runners.

Sir Michael Stoute
Age: 3
Weight: 8-13
OR: 111
Days: 93

One of our best bets of the day comes in the lucky last with the Sir Michael Stoute trained Highest ground looking like a group winner in the making.

Although not being seen for 93 days the colt holds bundles of potential, winning on his sole start as a juvenile at Leicester and this term winning on his seasonal debut and finishing a narrow second next time out.

He got off the mark for the term at Haydock when seeing off the smart Waldkonig for John Gosden and off the back of that stepped up for the Group Two Dante Stakes, where he was only beaten by a neck.

He drops down to a Group Three for this race and he looks the class angle if fresh after the short break.
