Oddschecker tips for every race at Newmarket on Saturday.
There are several progressive fillies to consider in this opener, with slight preference for the Sir Michael Stoute-trained CRYSTAL ESTRELLA. The daughter of Iffraaj was last seen winning at Goodwood in May and her opening mark could prove lenient, with any rain that falls in her favour. Al Husn is aiming for her fourth successive victory and might improve further now upped in distance. She rates the biggest threat ahead of I'll Be There and Persist, who both arrive in winning form. Prediction : 1st Crystal Estrella 2nd Al Husn 3rd Ill Be There
Amichi has more on his plate now conceding weight to all but one of his rivals, but the Ed Walker-trained youngster is hard to fault since being gelded and isn't taken lightly in his quest to land the hat-trick. However, a chance is taken on WOOLHAMPTON, who meets her conqueror on 8lb better terms and any ease in the ground could swing things further in her favour. Last-time-out winners Skysail and Safari Dream are but just two more to consider in an open contest.Prediction : 1st Woolhampton 2nd Amichi 3rd Skysail
Homeless Songs didn't appear at her best when only managing fourth in the Matron Stakes, but she was an ultra-impressive winner of the Irish 1,000 Guineas and it would be folly to discount her after just one below-par performance. SAFFRON BEACH finished two and a half lengths ahead of her in second at Leopardstown, though, and that effort makes last year's winner the one to beat again. Prosperous Voyage sprung a surprise in the Falmouth and is another to consider, with the unbeaten Laurel an intriguing piece of the puzzle.Prediction : 1st Saffron Beach 2nd Homeless Songs 3rd Prosperous Voyage
Leadenhall was sent off favourite on his debut at Sandown and he is likely to improve on that performance, but a chance is taken on IMPERIAL EMPEROR. This full-brother to the 97-rated First Ruler is certainly bred to have plenty of ability and he represents a stable that has an enviable team of juveniles. There are several other interesting newcomers in the line-up, including 300,000gns purchase A Dublin Lad and Roger Varian's Luna Effect. Prediction : 1st Imperial Emperor 2nd Leadenhall 3rd A Dublin Lad
Those with experience haven't shown a great deal so it's probably best to focus on the newcomers. Laafi has to be respected representing the William Haggas stable that won this contest 12 months ago, but MILITARY ORDER is a beautifully-bred son of Frankel and a full-brother to last year's Derby and King George hero Adayar. He gets the nod, while Enfjaar and Arabian Storm also merit a market check at the very least. Prediction : 1st Military Order 2nd Laafi 3rd Enfjaar
Roger Varian has been in flying form of late and saddles Hexameter, who makes her return to handicap company following a breakthrough victory at Ripon last week. There could well be more to come from her, but preference is for WHIMSY. The Andrew Balding-trained filly has filled the runner-up spot on her last two outings, but was successful at Salisbury in August over this distance so a step back up in trip looks a positive. Mellow Yellow remains unexposed and can also give a good account.Prediction : 1st Whimsy 2nd Hexameter 3rd Mellow Yellow
A case can be made for several of these but INTERNATIONAL GIRL kept on well to win, despite a very awkward start, on her most recent run over 6f at Pontefract. She has gone up 4lb for that success, but also drops in class for this contest and can feature once more. Printemps makes her handicap bow following a narrow defeat at Southwell on her UK debut, while Tarrabb is another to note.Prediction : 1st International Girl 2nd Printemps 3rd Tarrabb
