Group 1 action keeps coming thick and fast at Newmarket, with nine runners declared in the Fillies’ Mile on Friday.

The unbeaten INSPIRAL (10/11) holds favouritism for the contest, after John & Thady Gosden’s recruit made light work of her rivals in Group company last time out.

The Frankel filly won on debut over seven furlongs at Newmarket back in June before landing some black type at the first time of asking in the Listed Star Stakes at Sandown.

The two-year-old returned to action last month as a 2/9 short favourite for the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster and she breezed past her rivals to win by three and three-quarter lengths.

She is clearly the one to beat here, but she faces a rival who is also yet to taste defeat in the form of MISE EN SCENE (11/2).

The Siyouni filly has only made two starts to date and is stepped up to a mile for the first time here.

James Ferguson’s recruit thundered clear of her rivals on debut at Haydock in July before producing a wicked turn of foot to defeat a useful sort in the Group 3 Prestige Stakes at Goodwood a month later.

The two-year-old will need to prove herself over a mile here, but she clearly has ability and is one to watch out for here.

CONCERT HALL (8/1) is given another chance in Group 1 company after returning to form at the Curragh last time out.

The Dubawi filly has been campaigned over seven furlongs for most of this season and is stepped up to a mile for the first time following her success in the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes two weeks ago.

Aidan O’Brien has given his recruit a tough assignment here, but she could well give a good account of herself here.

MAGICAL LAGOON (10/1) makes the trip across the Irish Sea after winning the Flame Of Tara Stakes for Jessica Harrington, while Andrew Balding’s MAJESTIC GLORY (10/1) aims to bounce back following a disappointing run in the Rockfel Stakes last month.

WILD BEAUTY (10/1) returns to British soil following her Group 1 success in Canada for Charlie Appleby, while George Boughey’s CACHET (14/1) aims to follow up his second place finish in Group 2 company with success here.

BOUQUET (16/1) joins stablemate Inspiral after winning a novice event at Ascot last month and Ralph Beckett’s PROSPEROUS VOYAGE (33/1) will need to show some improvement after finishing behind several rivals in previous outings.
