The Racing and Sports Priceline has honed in on Dubai Beauty Horseform on the back of a very sharp debut performance on Newmarket's July Course.

Assessed Prices: Dubai Beauty $3.00; Accordance $6.00; Peach Tree $7.00; Dutch Treat $10.00.

Dubai Beauty has the best speed figure in the race and she was good enough to do that at just her first start. There's big upside there and while there are some handy rivals against her there doesn't look to be anything with any great upside.

Accordance and Peach Tree come off sound efforts in Group 3 races and should run well again and Dutch Treat ran well behind a good winner at Newbury last time but Dubai Beauty looks a more appealing prospect than all of them.

The other Group race on the card is the Park Stakes, often dubbed the fillies' St Leger.

Pilaster heads the betting after digging in really well to win the Lillie Langtry at Goodwood at what was just her fourth start last time.

God Given was behind her there having pushed Horseplay the run prior. That looks a positive form line for Pilaster but Horseplay has since run well in the Yorkshire Oaks and may just improve up in trip now.

The gap between them in the betting might be too big and Horseplay could well be worth a gamble.
