Timeform pick out their three best bets from Newmarket on Saturday…
“There could be even more to come from this well-bred filly…”
Timeform on Alwaysandforever
A case can be made for all seven of these fillies, but Alwaysandforever is arguably the most progressive, and is just favoured now sporting a first-time visor. She is lightly raced for her age, and has shown in two of her three starts this season she is capable of near-smart form, just denied in a similar event at Pontefract last time. There could be even more to come from this well-bred filly and she is preferred to the standard-setter Melodic Motion, who also gets headgear for the first time.
Ripp Orf is enjoying a fine season, winning the Victoria Cup at Ascot in May, and resuming winning ways in good style over this C&D last time. He showed a good burst of speed that day, still last a furlong out (traded at 1000 on the Betfair Exchange) and storming home to nab an unexposed three-year-old on the line. He is still on a fair mark now 3 lb higher in the weights and there should be enough pace on here to suit him. Vintager and Keeper’s Choice are both likeable and should continue in form.
Major Partnership made a very promising start to his career when second in a minor event at Kempton that has worked out well since and he looks well up to winning a race of this nature. His lack of experience was evident that day, keeping on well down the outside, nearest the finish, and he is fully expected to go one place better now with Saeed bin Suroor in cracking form.
