T: K R Burke
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: 113
Days: 36

The second Group One of the afternoon is the Middle Park Stakes over 6f for the colts and Marshman for Karl Burke holds the best form in the race.

The two year old has been seen three times in his career to date, making his debut at Ayr over 6f when winning nicely in a Maiden Stakes.

He was then sent to Thirsk and gave the performance of his career when landing a Novice Stakes by close to nine lengths.

Up in class for his latest run he ran a cracker to finish second behind the smart Noble Style at York in the Group Two Gimcrack Stakes and if improving again, which he will need to, that form could be the best on offer.

Trainer To Follow - Aidan O'Brien

Aidan O'Brien sends some strong runners to Newmarket on Saturday and we think he will be seen in the winners enclosure at some point during the afternoon.

In the Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes he fields Greenland who was a nice winner at the fourth time of asking last time out and could improve to go close.

Meditate looks to be the best chance of the day for the Ballydoyle maestro looking to get back to winning ways in the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes.

O'Brien has had a crack at the other Group One on the day aswell with Blackbeard looking to back up his Group One Prix Morny win in the Middle Park Stakes.

Jockey To Follow - Ray Dawson

Ray Dawson has a decent book of rides on Saturday and we think he could be the man to follow across the afternoon.

In the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes he teams up with Saeed bin Suroor to ride Mawj and he gets on with the filly well having already landed the Group Two Duke Of Cambridge Stakes on her.

Dawson's next ride comes in the feature Cambridgeshire Handicap sitting on the inform Roger Varian trained Kitsune Power who has progressed well all season.

In the Maiden Fillies's Stakes he teams up with Varian again on Alvescot and then in the Nursery Fillies' Stakes over 7f Mystic Pearl for William Haggas.

Dawson's final ride of the afternoon comes on Light And Dark for Bin Suroor who holds a big chance.
