Before we reach the namesake race of the Cambridgeshire Meeting, there's the small matter of the Middle Park Stakes to settle. This Group One for juvenile colts was first staged at Newmarket in 1866, and it's been won by legends like Pretty Polly, Abernant, Brigadier Gerard and Dark Angel.

This year's renewal is looking as competitive as ever, and it's possible we could see a future star of the sport claim their first Group One on Saturday.

Minzaal lit up the Ebor Festival at York last month, surging clear to win the Gimcrack Stakes by two lengths. Owen Burrows is enjoying one of his best training season's to date, and Minzaal looks a horse with significant potential.

Lucky Vega beat The Lir Jet and Aloha Star to win the Phoenix Stakes, and drops back in trip having finished fifth in the National Stakes on Irish Champions Weekend.

Royal Ascot winners, Tactical and The Lir Jet could step back up into Group One company at Newmarket on Saturday.

Nando Parrado, who won the Coventry Stakes as a 150/1 shot, could also appear, having followed Campanelle home in the Prix Morny.

Aidan O'Brien is the winning-most trainer in the Middle Park Stakes, and his hopes lie with St Mark's Basilica, who's won just one of his four starts this season.
