Timeform pick out three bets from Newmarket on Saturday, the third and final day of the 2016 Cambridgeshire meeting...


Best of Days - Newmarket 14:20

Best of Days failed to meet market expectations when second on his most recent outing in the Acomb Stakes at York, but he still showed himself to be a smart prospect for the future and that form represented a significant improvement on that he had produced to make a successful racecourse debut at Sandown. He gave the impression the step up to 1m would see him in an even better light that day and - 1 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings - Best of Days is taken to see off the attentions of Montataire and can land this Group 2 prize en route to better things in 2017.

Blue Point - Newmarket 15:30

Blue Point created a deep impression when running out a easy winner of his first two starts and resumed his progress with a decisive victory in the Gimcrack Stakes at York last month. He always appeared to be in control on that occasion, travelling strongly into contention and putting up one of the best two-year-old performances of the season as he streaked clear in the final furlong. He remains open to more improvement after just four starts and Blue Point is expected to prove far too classy here, with York-second Mokarris fancied to chase the selection home once again.

Third Time Lucky - Newmarket 16:10

Third Time Lucky fared better than the bare result when fifth on his most recent outing at York, enduring a troubled passage as the field entered the final furlong and likely to have finished much closer than the length and three quarters he was beaten with a clear run. That was just his third start since winning this race 12 months ago and - likely to be fresher than most at this stage of the season - Third Time Lucky is fancied to prove too strong for the improving three-year-old Banksea and can record back-to-back wins in this race with Adam McNamara taking off 5 lb.
