Let the joy begin....the 1st Classic of the year is the 2000 Guineas @ Newmarket. The 200th running of this historic race is call the 2000 Guineas because that was the original entrance fee way back when.
Only 3 year old colts can race in this and 3 big trends to look at to find yourself in the frame.
The Dewhurst Stakes @ Newmarket run on Champions day last October, the winner is nearly always in the frame come the Guineas or the Derby. Last year's was a wash out with the 1, 2 in the 2006 Dewhurst both retired but the 05 Dewhurst was won by Sir Percy (winner of the 06 Derby and runner up in the 06 Guineas).
A group 1 winner
And a season reappearance (1st run of the season)
3 horses went into the hat with these stats.....New Approach (winner of last years Dewhurst), Ibn Khaldun (winner of last years Racing Post trophy) & Rio de La Plata (winner of the French Dewhurst).
The latter is going to the French Guineas next week (talk to you about that tomorrow) so it leaves me with -
