Tudor Queen (1.00 Newmarket)

Top Rank (3.35 Windsor)

Sayyida (3.50 Newmarket)

1.00 Newmarket - Tudor Queen

Brierley says: "First selection of the day, then, comes up in the one o'clock at Newmarket.

"It's a fillies novice event for the two-year-olds, here, and stepping up to seven furlongs, Tudor Queen should go very close indeed on second start for the Kevin Ryan yard.

"Now, the stable have a knack of improving horses from first run to second. In fact they've had two two-year-old winners this week, who were both well beaten on debut and went on to win second time out.

"As well, of course, last week's group winner, Atomic Force, who won on his second start before bolting up in group three company.

"So, it's clear that the juveniles improve. Tudor Queen caught the eye with a never-nearer third at Ripon.

"She was keen, she was fresh, she was pretty inexperienced as she didn't seem to handle the track.

"She should come on a lot for that first run, and Tudor Queen gets the nod in the opener of the afternoon at Newmarket."

3.50 Newmarket - Sayyida

Brierley says: "This mile-and-a-half handicap has a nice shape to it, with quite a few progressive and improving sorts.

"But it was hard not to be knocked sideways by the performance of Sayyida last time out at Newmarket on the rolly mile.

"This horse is a full sister to the Derby winner Masar, so there is a lot to live up to in her pedigree, and she showed signs of greenness and inexperience on her two two-year-old starts last season - rattling home to finish a never-nearer second at Nottingham behind Little Kitten, and showing that she would improve for a step up in trip in time.

"She bolted up by two-and-a-half lengths here last time out when weak in the market, and a little bit green in the race.

"The second and the third have franked the form in decent novice events since, and there should be a lot more to come from Sayyida off a mark of 85.

"And she could progress into a black-type filly at the end of the season."

3.35 Windsor - Top Rank

Brierley says: "This is a big step down in grade for Top Rank here at Windsor in this listed contest.

"And, he could easily take it in his stride, after a more than promising run in group one company at Royal Ascot last week.

"That was a second crack at the top level for Top Rank, and things didn't go to plan.

"He was drawn in [stall] one down the centre of the track, when all the action came from the high numbers down the nearside, and he actually ran a bit of a blinder despite finishing a comfortably beaten sixth.

"But, he's got soft ground, a mile and a much easier track to contend with here, and of course a much easier grade.

"Bounce The Blues is a decent horse, and Century Dream really likes it at this level as well, and could well be the biggest challenger to Top Rank's claims.

"But, this is much easier, and as I said, he was a bit of an under the radar quiet eye-catcher at Royal Ascot last time out.

"And, his soft ground win in group three company last year will stand him in good stead for this particular test."
