The first leg of a Group One double-header on the final day of the Cambridgeshire Meeting is the Cheveley Park Stakes. Many top-quality fillies have claimed their first Group Ones in this historic race, with the likes Pretty Polly, Marwell and Special Duty shining on the Rowley Mile.

ITV Racing viewers can look forward to a thrilling renewal of this historic race on Saturday, and we’ve taken a look through the field to find our best bet.

Two Group-Two winning fillies top the market for Saturday’s race. The first of those being Dandalla, who romped to victory in the Albany Stakes, despite running very keen early on. Karl Burke’s filly then followed up in the Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes during the July Meeting, and brings plenty of excellent form to the table.

As does Ken Condon’s raider, Miss Amulet, who struck in the Lowther Stakes at York. That was Miss Amulet’s second pattern-race win in a row, having beaten Frenetic over the minimum distance to win a Listed race at Naas. Condon’s filly took to six furlongs really well at York, and Ryan Moore has already been confirmed in the saddle for the Cambridgeshire Meeting.

Sacred has finished second three times since winning on debut. William Haggas’ filly came up a length short of Miss Amulet at York, and was headed by 40/1 shot, Ubettabelieveit when last seen in the Flying Childers. Sacred enters this Group One as the highest-rated horse in the field, despite the fact she’s been beaten on all three of her starts at Group level.

Umm Kulthum could turn out again quickly, having ground out a narrow victory in the Firth Of Clyde Stakes at Ayr. That didn’t seem a particularly strong ground through, and nothing Umm Kulthum has produced thus far suggests she’s a Group One winner in waiting.

Happy Romance continued her excellent seasonal form with a maiden Group victory at Salisbury last time out. Richard Hannon’s filly is clearly still going in the right direction, but jumping into Group One company could be a step too far for a filly who’s had a very busy juvenile campaign.

Alcohol Free followed Happy Romance home in the Dick Poole, on what was just her second career start. This daughter of No Nay Never may not be ready to win a Group One just yet, but she’s got an excellent profile and should have improved again for that outing at Salisbury.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Aloha Star attract some each-way support, if she remains on a double-figure price. James Stack’s filly handed Frenetic a surprise beating to win a Group Two at the Curragh, and ran beyond her odds again in the Phoenix Stakes, finishing ahead of several colts who hold an entry in the Middle Park Stakes.

The fact that Ryan Moore rides Miss Amulet means neither Mother Earth nor More Beautiful will take their chance on Saturday. Zoetic would have to take her form up four or five notches just to get involved, and I can’t see Dickiedooda or Illykato landing a significant blow on ITV Racing.

Aloha Star holds appeal at an each-way price, but she's yet to be confirmed in the race. Miss Amulet is clearly in with an excellent chance too. On this occasion, though, I'll be siding with DANDALLA.

Many top fillies have come from the Albany during its 20-year history. The edition that Dandalla won clearly wasn't strong, but she destroyed her rivals by six lengths - the largest winning distance in the history of the Albany, by a good two lengths or so.

Ben Curtis gave Karl Burke's star another excellent ride at Newmarket. Curtis said he could tell his mount hated the tacky ground, and didn't push her too hard in the closing stages, as he felt she was always going enough.

The form of the Duchess Of Cambridge is working out well. The runner-up, Fev Rover was handed a mark of 108 after winning a Group Two in France, and third-place Santosha has also won a pattern-race since.

While I'm confident the step up to seven furlongs, and even a mile, will suit Dandalla in time, she clearly has enough raw pace to triumph over six furlongs. Decent ground could even help Burke's filly take her form to a whole new level.

Dandalla is a tremendously exciting filly for Karl Burke and his team to have. Burke's no stranger to training top fillies either, having guided Laurens all the way to the top of the game in 2017 and '18. At 4/1, she looks a cracking ante-post bet.

Verdict

Miss Amulet is the main danger, but I think Dandalla brings the best form to the table, and Karl Burke's budding star would be a worthy winning of the Cheveley Park.
