Timeform Daily: Sun Chariot Stakes, Saturday, Newmarket 15:00

Elusive Kate (right) is fancied to win on Saturday

Timeform provide a runner-by-runner guide to the Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket...

The 3-y-os should have the upper hand and Elusive Kate can get the better of Beauty Parlour...

Chachamaidee won at Glorious Goodwood for second year running and was awarded 1m Group 1 in Ireland last time. Runner-up in this last year and bound to give it another good go.

Siyouma is a progressive lightly-raced French filly, third in the Falmouth and good effort behind Snow Fairy at Deauville last time. Effective at 1m and worth keeping an eye on.

Beauty Parlour experienced her first defeat behind the ill-fated Valyra at Chantilly last time, no extra in the closing stages. Highly progressive prior to that and big run expected on first start for Sir Henry Cecil.

Elusive Kate was one of last year's top juveniles, winning the Prix Marcel Boussac. Made all in Prix Rothschild at Deauville before good effort behind Excelebration back there and could be hard to peg back.

Gamilati won the Cherry Hinton last summer and took the UAE 1000 Guineas in good style in February. Did too much too soon in Group 3 at Doncaster last time but still has a bit to find on overall turf form.

La Collina was a 33/1 winner of Phoenix Stakes last year. Good effort behind Chachamaidee at Leopardstown last time but plenty more needed to figure and 1m probably sharp enough for her.

Laugh Out Loud was unraced as a juvenile, but kept busy this year, winning listed race at York and Group 2 at Chantilly over 1m. Ran well behind Chachamaidee last time and has a squeak.

Up is in the form of her life, following up Group 3 success at the Curragh (heavy going) with victory in 1¼m Group 2 there. Return to 1m shouldn't inconvenience.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Elusive Kate
2. Beauty Parlour
3. Siyouma

Timeform View: Chachamaidee and Siyouma are respected, but the 3-y-os should have the upper hand and Elusive Kate can get the better of Beauty Parlour.
