Timeform on Etoile

Timeform pick out their best back, lay, and smart stat bets on Saturday...

Kameko - 13:50 Newmarket

Kameko sets a clear standard on form after his close second to a smart type in the Solario Stakes at Sandown last month, and is open to further improvement over this longer trip on just his third start, so could well be the answer. Highland Chief is another interesting contender with this extra furlong sure to suit.

Eartlight - 15:00 Newmarket

The Andre Fabre-trained Earthlight hasn't put a foot wrong in his career so far, winning all four starts to date, including at the highest level in the Prix Morny over this trip last time. His trainer was very vocal about wanting to run in the Dewhurst after, but as he is in the same ownership as Pinatubo, he has been diverted to the Middle Park. This looks a mouth-watering renewal, with the also unbeaten Siskin and Mums Tipple, who created a big impression at York last time, both in opposition. Therefore, a lay bet on Earthlight is suggests, given his short odds in a race that has plenty of depth.

Smart Stat:
Etoile - 14:25 Newmarket

3 - Aidan O'Brien's number of winners in past 10 runnings

Aidan O'Brien has a good recent record in the Cheveley Park and, of his two runners, it is Etoile who makes the most appeal. She is seemingly held in some regard, having made a winning debut in a Group 3 at Naas in May, creating an excellent impression despite showing clear signs of greenness. Admittedly, it is disconcerting that we haven't seen her since, but she could hardly be in better hands, and she brings significant potential to the table.
