Saturday's televised action at Newmarket is headlined by the Sun Chariot Stakes. This Group One was first staged on the Rowley Mile in 1966, and has since been won by stand-out fillies and mares like Time Charter, Sahpresa, Siyoumi and Laurens.

We've taken a look through the field set to contest this year's Sun Chariot and picked out our best ITV Racing betting tips.

2021 Sun Chariot Stakes Runners

Mother Earth
and Snow Lantern, along with notable absentee Alcohol Free, have been trading blows all season. Mother Earth beat Alcohol Free in the 1000 Guineas, before Andrew Balding's filly defeated Snow Lantern and Mother Earth in the Coronation Stakes. 

It was then Snow Lantern's turn to get the better of her rivals, producing a powerful late surge to win the Falmouth Stakes, before Alcohol Free reversed that form again in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.

Both Snow Lantern and Mother Earth travel to Newmarket having suffered defeat on their most recent runs. Snow Lantern couldn't finish any better than fourth behind Baaeed in the Prix du Moulin, while Mother Earth endured a luckless passage when third behind No Speak Alexander in the Matron.

If on top of their game, they are the stand-out contenders. However, both have endured long, hard seasons, so I'm going to side away from the market leaders and have an each-way punt in this historic race.

The one who appeals to me most is LAVENDER'S BLUE, who snatched victory away from Benbatl - who boosted that form by winning the Joel Stakes last week - to claim a shock win in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood last time out. 

Rob Hornby's mount was well-beaten in the Falmouth Stakes, but she was always going to be playing catch-up from stall one and never really got involved in the right. Prior to that, Lavender's Blue had impressed this season, winning a Listed race at Kempton while also finishing a very close third behind Lady Bowthorpe and Queen Power in the Dahlia Stakes staged here on the Rowley Mile.

Amanda Perrett's star finished next to last when this race was run on heavy ground last year, but was much more competitive when fourth behind Billesdon Brook in the 2019 renewal of the Sun Chariot.


Given she goes well on this track and returns to Newmarket on the back of an impressive victory, I think Lavender's Blue is a solid each-way option at 14/1.
