THERE is some top-quality action on day two of the Cambridgeshire meeting at Newmarket.
Among the horses on show on ITV4 is Queen Anne Stakes hero Accidental Agent, and we have previewed each of the four live races.
A cracking fillies event to get the action underway, and runaway Royal Ascot winner AGROTERA (1.50) can get her head back in front.
Ed Walker’s filly ran out a hugely impressive winner of the Sandringham at the Royal meeting under a cool Jamie Spencer ride.
She has run well at this Listed level the last twice and has conditions to suit today.
Unforgetable Filly was an easy winner when last sighted and is the main danger, while Laugh Aloud isn’t discounted for all she has been disappointing the last twice.
STAR ROCK (2.25) has been plying her trade in a higher grade than this of late.
She has run with particular credit, hitting the frame in Group 2’s at Glorious Goodwood and in Germany.
This looks a good opportunity for her to get her head back in front, though the progressive Mrs Sippy commands respect.
Highgarden looks the likely pace angle and it would be no surprise to see her bang there at the finish.
ITV racing tips
2.25 Star Rock
3.00 Main Edition
MAIN EDITION (3.00) has run at all several of the big gigs this season, with the highlight coming when she won at Royal Ascot.
She wasn’t disgraced when fifth in an Irish Group 1 latest, but this drop in class could see her home in front once more.
Just Wonderful wasn’t far behind the selection at the Curragh and represents top trainer Aidan O’Brien. Her dam won this race in 2011.
The improving Yourtimeisnow is taking a step up in class but could be anything.
MUSTASHRY (3.35) showed a willing attitude when toughing it out to win at Doncaster last time.
The return to 1m is no problem and he has the least to prove among the five runners in this Group 2.
Accidental Agent won the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes in June, but he carries a penalty for that and is often at his best in a big field over Ascot’s straight mile.
Zonderland ran well at Goodwood last time out and should get his favoured good ground.
