14:45 Newmarket

Nobody was getting close to the extremely impressive Snowfall in the Cazoo Oaks at Epsom in June however its fair to say that Save A Forest ran a cracker to finish fourth at 40/1, firmly reversing the form with Sherbet Lemon who had held on for Listed victory when they met the month before. She has also beaten the re-opposing Invite earlier in the season and her trainer is in sparkling form so its no surprise to see her head the early markets.

Yesyes has made the perfect start to her career, beating the highly regarded Eileendover on debut and followed up with another solid victory at Lingfield earlier in the month. This is a big step up in grade but the Camelot filly has progressed well and looks ready for the bigger challenge.

Portfolio is another who brings solid recent form in to this race, having won her last two including here at Newmarket earlier in the month. She steps up in trip for today's race but shouldn't be underestimated for last years' winning trainer.

All of the above warrant plenty of respect, however my selection is Sayyida who has had an excellent season to date, winning two from two since stepping up in trip, winning on both the Rowley Mile and the July course. Both trainer and jockey arrive here in excellent form and the prior experience of the course could be enough to swing things in her favour.
