Timeform pick out three bets on 2000 Guineas day at Newmarket on Saturday.


Profitable - 14:20 Newmarket

This looks a deep renewal but does look a good opportunity for Profitable to get back to winning ways given that he escapes a penalty for his win in the 17-runner Group 1 King's Stand at Royal Ascot last year. He won this race last year and gets the vote to double up, though there are any number of dangers, headed by the progressive Dancing Star, Kimberella, stablemate Priceless and the William Haggas-trained Muthmir.

One Foot In Heaven - 14:55 Newmarket

Aidan O'Brien's Seventh Heaven was last seen finishing a good second in the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan behind Jack Hobbs and is an obvious player here now down in grade. However, are the prices it could be worth chancing One Foot In Heaven, a winner at this level in France last season who should be all the sharper for his reappearance at Chantilly. Sir Michael Stoute's Across The Stars looks just the type to go on to even better things this year and is also likely to be bang there.

Barney Roy - 15:35 Newmarket

A fantastic renewal in which three impressive trial winners face off against one of the outstanding two-year-olds of last season in Churchill, who has been a short-priced favourite for this since completing a five-timer in the Dewhurst here in October. He holds strong claims, but at the prices Barney Roy makes more appeal, having looked a colt right out of the top drawer when forging clear of Dream Castle in the Greenham at Newbury two weeks ago. Eminent and Al Wukair, the other trial winners, are also fascinating contenders.
