Alan is playing towards the very top of the market on Saturday with two of Charlie Appleby's big guns, while Tyson Fury is fancied to once again beat Deontay Wilder...
"But once he knew what to do, he asserted in the manner of a top-drawer horse as he pulled away from the 115-rated Point Lonsdale by over 3L."
Godolphin youngster to make amends
Trainer Charlie Appleby enjoyed a stellar afternoon on Friday taking two of the big races at Newmarket with two sons of Dubawi, and the endless supply of quality from the elite sire keep rolling with another couple on Saturday. We're playing short with Appleby, and the yard could even eclipse the efforts from 24 hours ago with some ultra-strong chances.
Coroebus was a horse I tipped up for the Royal Lodge last time, and how he didn't win I don't know. He stormed clear of the field and looked to have a 5L lead at one stage, but then showed his inexperience and got lonely and was picked off by Royal Patronage in a classic Betfair race. Coroebus was matched in defeat in-play at 1.011/100 and the winner traded at 950.0949/1.
The assessment was spot on that he was the best horse in the race, despite his rather tame final furlong at over 13 secs.
He looked Group-class when winning on debut at Newmarket - which traditionally has been a hot race, with Roaring Lion and Frankel both taking that in the past. Appleby maintained he could be a horse for the Vertem Futurity and he can stamp his class on this with the benefit of his latest run.
To continue the Dubawi love-in, his record at HQ is tremendous. He has sired 159 winners from 742 runners, with 300 placed - earning nearly £5million in the process.
Same blue silks, same trainer, jockey and almost identical price as Native Trail looks to emulate Pinatubo in taking the National Stakes and the Dewhurst. It's another short price but he's the best juvenile around at the moment.
His performance was high-class in Ireland as he posted the best 2yo performance of the season as he swept past his rivals. He still looked slightly inexperienced with a couple of furlongs to go and looked as if he changed his legs, but once he knew what to do, he asserted in the manner of a top-drawer horse as he pulled away from the 115-rated Point Lonsdale by over 3L.
He wouldn't want the ground too quick as he's a huge scopey horse, and his trainer thinks he'll get quicker as he gets stronger and fills his frame and also gets sharper mentally.
On debut he beat Coroebus's conqueror by four lengths and while we are playing at two short prices, the enhanced boost really comes into play on days like these.

Timeform says: "A 4lb penalty for her latest win on the Flat effectively puts Burning Victory on a mark of 98 here, which looks fair based on the best of her Flat form much earlier in her career. This track, trip and ground should all suit and a big run from her would not at all surprise."
Frank Monkhouse says: "Fury should have won the first fight, and he certainly made sure he won the second. The champion didn't just beat Wilder that night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas; he tortured him. The excuses Deontay has made since show he struggles to come to terms with just how badly Fury beat him in America. The Brit embarrassed him with skills then took him out with timing and power. Expect more of the same again here."
