Timeform pick out their three best bets from Newmarket on Friday...

Timeform on Here's Alice
Hat-trick-seeking ALDANA's profile is strikingly similar to that of Alwasmiya, who landed this race for the same connections last year, and, representing an in-form yard, she is taken to follow in her stablemate's footsteps. Lady Aria boasts solid form credentials based on her near miss in a Salisbury Group 3 in September, while Kurious remains with potential and Gypsy Spirit also enters calculations.
It's probably safe to assume that bottom-weight LIVVYS DREAM simply had an off day when tried over this trip at Leicester in August, rather than attributing that defeat to lack of stamina. Indeed, the manner of her subsequent victories at Kempton and Windsor suggest that 1¼m should be within range for this progressive three-year-old. Unexposed handicap debutant Kasbaan is feared most ahead of Rotherwick and Dragons Voice.
The well-bred HERE'S ALICE, another three-year-old trained by Charlie Hills, had plenty left in the tank when opening her account at Bath and, with further progress anticipated now faced with a stiffer test, she is taken to exploit what could turn out to be a lenient opening mark. Night Story is bound to attract support following his Chelmsford victory, but he has a bit to prove on turf and bigger threats are likely to be posed by Graceful Lady and Alfredo.
