Friday's card kicks off with a competitive fillies' maiden, before moving into the Cornwallis Stakes, where juvenile sprinters have the chance to land a Group Three prize.

Andre Fabre has top filly Raclette entered up in the Oh So Sharp Stakes, and she'll likely go off at an odds-on price if she's confirmed in the field. Al Suhail and D'bai will then attempt to win the Godolphin Challenge Stakes for the race sponsors, but could face stiff competition from Sacred and Chindit.

A classy field of juvenile fillies will then go to post in the 2021 Fillies' Mile. John Gosden's unbeaten filly, Inspiral dominates the current betting. Mise En Scene, Wild Beauty, Magical Lagoon and Concert Hall also feature in the entries.

Injazati, Moshaawer and Siskany could all take their chance in the big betting race on day one, the Old Rowley Cup. Day one at Newmarket closes with the Group Three Pride Stakes, where Sayyida, Lilac Road and Lights On could take up their entries. 

2021 Future Champions Meeting Day Two Card - Saturday 9th October

Native Trail2021 Dewhurst Stakes FavouriteGET 8/11 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

Two-year-olds get Saturday's action at Newmarket underway in the Dubai Nursery Handicap. Potential Derby runners could then lock horns in the ten-furlong Zetland Stakes, where Charlie Appleby's Goldspur looks likely to go off as the strong favourite.

Royal Lodge Stakes runner-up, Coroebus could then fly the flag for Godolphin in the Autumn Stakes. Stablemate Native Trail will then carry a very short price into the Dewhurst Stakes, where he could square off against Champagne Stakes winner Bayside Boy, and Ger Lyon's unbeaten colt Straight Answer.

Once the two-year-old colts have departed the Rowley Mile, 34 top stayers will go toe-to-toe in the historic Cesarewitch Handicap. M C Muldoon could try to hand Willie Mullins his fourth-straight victory in the Cesarewitch. Fellow National Hunt trainer, Nicky Henderson has booked Oisin Murphy to ride Buzz. Calling The Wind, Live Your Dream, Burning Victory and Coltor also feature prominently in the ante-post betting.

Double Or Bubble will lead a field of talented fillies into the Listed Boadicea Stakes. Like day one, day two's card also closes with a Group Three race, as Mostahdaf, Maydanny and Barney Roy square off in the Darley Stakes.
