Newmarket - 15:35: Back Legend Of Time

We're back on the Rowley Mile for the three-day Newmarket Cambridgeshire meeting and the Group 3 Somerville Tattersall Stakes over 7f has plenty of potential hot-shots for the future and it could be a day for potential stars as some very expensive blue bloods open up the card.

And with such good racing to look forward to, Betfair is running a free bet offer on Racing Multis this weekend - click here for more information.

The feature sees a Charlie Appleby runner at 5/16.00, and not many of his once-raced and one win runners are sent off at such a big price, and now the form wobbles appear to be over of sorts, that's too big in price.

Appleby has won this prize on two of the last three occasions including with the ultra-classy Modern Games.

Legend Of Time is a 2yo by Sea The Stars and won on debut at Haydock overcoming a bit of greenness to show a real stoic and fighting attitude against some rivals with experience.

It looked a good novice at Haydock and Legend Of Time was waited with on the inside surrounded by horses but showed a willingness to get wide and really stuck his head down showing an 11.07 second sectional in the penultimate final.

He'll get a mile easily and holds a Futurity entry later in the season, and with Appleby at 40% in the last two weeks with eight winners from 20 runners, he should make his mark as a juvenile as there are plenty of 2yo winners in his pedigree.

The draw in seven gives William Buick a chance where to go, but I anticipate he'll get some cover. Buick is miles ahead as the top jockey at HQ this term with a profit of +17.00 from his 14 winners at 32%.

Back Legend Of Time @ 5/16.00

Newmarket - 17:18: Back Value Added

Richard Hughes' filly Value Added has the added pressure of running in the King and Queen's silks, but she's a filly who seems to be improving considering she has been keen, and if she can settle better today is worth a play at 13/27.50 in the fillies' handicap.

She created a good impression on her sole run as a juvenile at Newbury last October and travelled smoothly in that on testing ground.

The 3yo has won only once this term in five outings which is a slightly disappointing return considering she looked to have talent at Newbury, but she made the running to win at Wolverhampton and having tried 1m2f on more than once occasion this year, it might work well with the angle of her dropping down to 1m.

Her latest Salisbury fourth was a muddling race over 1m2f and she didn't have the pace to aim at as she failed to settle.

But there's scope from her mark of 80 today in what looks an open race.

Back Value Added @ 13/27.50
