"It is unlikely we have seen the best of her yet..."

Timeform on Operatic

Alanmar - 12:35 Newmarket

Those with previous experience don't set too high a standard in this contest, so it could pay to side with one of the newcomers, and the Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned Alanmar makes plenty of appeal ahead of his debut. The Siyouni colt cost 800,000 guineas as a yearling and is a half-brother to several winners, including the smart Nyaleti. His dam was also a winner in her juvenile season, so there is every reason to think he will prove a precocious two-year-old.

Operatic - 13:45 Newmarket

Operatic proved an entirely different proposition from debut when opening her account with ease at Windsor last month, looking a useful prospect as she ran out an all-the-way winner, pulling seven lengths clear of a subsequent winner in second, and she didn't need to improve on that much to defy a penalty and go in again at Kempton last time, again showing plenty of early speed and seeing off her main opponent once pressed. It is unlikely we have seen the best of her yet, and though this is a tougher challenge up in grade, she could well be up to the task.

Kryptos - 15:30 Newmarket

Kryptos's below par effort in the Cambridgeshire is best excused, another runner to have no chance due to racing on the far side, and he duly bounced back to form when finishing runner-up at Nottingham last time, just no match for a well treated one who has gone in again since. Kryptos is arguably at his best when the mud is flying, so today's conditions will not be an issue, and he boasts solid claims of regaining the winning thread, particularly with Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle.
