There was a Royal winner on the first day of the Newmarket Guineas meeting when Blueprint landed the Sagitta Jockey Club Stakes.

Earlier Henry Cecil's Beat Hollow, the ante-post favourite for the Vodafone Derby, made a successful seasonal reappearnace in the Newmarket Stakes. He was chased home by his stablemate Sandmason who ran an eyecatching race.


A total of 18 runners will line up for Sunday's Sagitta 1000 Guineas. There were no surprise withdrawals at the 48 hour declaration stage with Michael Stoute's Petrushka remaining the hot favourite. High Walden, Henry Cecil's highly regarded representative, is set to make her seasonal reappearance in Sunday's race.


Godolphin's Teggiano misses Sunday's Sagitta 1000 Guineas and will instead go for the Dubai Poule d'Essai des Pouliches at Longchamp next weekend.

Bintalreef will now be Godolphin's sole runner in Sunday's contest.


Australian jockey Greg Hall has his first British classic ride when he partners Millenium Moonbeam for trainer Mark Pitman in the Sagitta 2000 Guineas.

Hall, who has ridden over 200 Group winners, partnered his first British winner at Nottingham on Easter Monday.

He said today: "It's fantastic. I've ridden two winners over here and to have a ride in a Classic - if I walked away tomorrow I'd be more than happy with the ways things have gone.

"I've been very fortunate in my own country. I've ridden a Melbourne Cup winner, two Cox Plate winners, two Golden Slipper winners and the winners of two AJC Derbys and two VRC Derbys."



Star Turn may have been a 33-1 shot but he was strongly fancied by owner Kirk Bowen and trainer Mark Flower, both of whom availed themselves of some fancy prices.

"I thought we came here with a major, major chance, and half of Wales (that is where his owner comes from) was on," said Flower after Star Turn had taken the lead from Pinchincha entering the final furlong and held on by half a length.

"He has had endless problems with his knees and I treat him like glass," added Flower, who has 20 horses ("not enough") in his yard at Jevington in East Sussex.

"But everything was right for him today, the track and the ground and I was sure he would go really well," the trainer went on.

"I understand that Frannie (Norton) had had several requests to ride in the North today, but his agent had committed him to our horse and I don't suppose that he is shedding any tears now".

Flower told Norton to come as late as he dared on the six-year-old and the jockey did this to the letter. "I told him to be switched off at the back of midfield and just come gently, gently as the horse pricks his ears when he hits the front," the trainer said.

"This was the plan (echoing the immortal words of the late Bernard van Cutsem)," said Flower when asked about future plans for Star Turn. "I think he is better than a 57 horse (off which mark Star Turn was racing) and I have pencilled in some other races for him. He wants good ground like this on a galloping track over a mile and a quarter so I shall try to find something else like this."

Norton said that while the ground was drying out all the time, it rode slightly on the slow side of good.



Beat Hollow did all that Henry Cecil and Richard Quinn wanted of him as he beat his stablemate Sandmason by a length and a quarter, and he remains at the top of the ante-post lists for next month's Vodafone Derby, though his odds vary from 7/1 to half that price.

"He will have to have another race before he can go to Epsom," said the trainer who immediately spoke about York later this month with the Dante Stakes the only race he mentioned by name.

"He and Sandmason are both still very green. They have had only one race each and were hollering all the time when they were going round the paddock.

"Richard (Quinn) did the right thing in committing Beat Hollow as early as he did. The early stages of the race were very slow and you don't want it turning into a sprint.

"He (Beat Hollow) quickened up well when he went to win his race and then thought he had done enough. Richard did not want to give him a hard race and was not giving him a tough time when the other horse came at him.

"I do not work the pair together, I split them up as I don't want to find out on the gallops how much better one might be than the other. The racecourse is the place for that.

"Sandmason has run a super race and they will both come on for it. It has been difficult with this strange spring, but I am delighted with what both of them have done here."


The connections of the second Sandmason, who was racing for only the second time, were very happy with the Grand Lodge colt who, like the winner Beat Hollow, is trained by Henry Cecil.

Leslie Harrison, manager of the Howard de Walden Plantation Stud, said: "I am very pleased. We ran him to get him out on the racecourse again. He is very lazy at home.

"Far from wondering if he needs a mile and a half, he now definitely wants it. The question is how much he will improve over a mile and a half.

"If he keeps progressing, and he has to progress a lot, we will think about the Derby."

His jockey Willie Ryan said: "He really lengthened."

Coral, William Hill and the Tote go 20/1 (from as high as 100/1) about Sandmason for the Vodafone Derby.

They offer differing Derby odds about Beat Hollow - Ladbrokes go 7/1, the Tote go 6/1 from 8/1, William Hill go 11/2 from 7/1, Coral go 5/1 from 8/1 and Victor Chandler go 7/2.



Blueprint, heavily backed in the offices in the morning, gave The Queen an ideal foretaste for her visit to the Rowley Mile tomorrow, when she will officially open the new Millennium Stand, with a convincing defeat of the 33-1 chance Casamata.

And there was immediate talk after the race of a tilt at Royal Ascot, where the colt was successful last season in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes. This time, though, he will be up from handicap company to Group level, with both Sir Michael Stoute and the Royal racing manager Lord Carnarvon nominating the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes as Blueprint's likely target.

"That is the race we have had in mind for him, but we shall go back and have a think," said the trainer, who was in quippish form when asked about his 1,000 Guineas ante-post favourite Petrushka.

"You will find out on Sunday if I have mucked it up, but so far all seems to have gone according to plan," said Stoute.

Blueprint had got very warm before the race, but Lord Carnarvon said that this was nothing to worry about. "He always is like that, it was the same when he was trained by William (Hastings-Bass, Lord Huntingdon), and it has been the same since he came to Michael," he said.

Lord Carnarvon went on to hope that this success would be a good omen for the winer's half-sister Fairy Godmother, who runs later in the day.

"Their dam, Highbrow, is in foal to Rainbow Quest," he said.



The French-trained Casamasa, a 33/1 chance carrying the colours of the race sponsor Wafic Said, ran on well to finish a length and a half runner-up behind the Queen's Blueprint in the Sagitta Jockey Club Stakes.

"I'm genuinely delighted that the Queen has won the race as she'll feel very happy to come here tomorrow to open the stand.

"He has run a marvellous race, particularly as he looked to be boxed in at one stage."

The owner's racing manager Tim Bulwer-Long added: "He was coming back in trip in a little bit as he has been running over 3,000 metres on heavy ground in France.

"I thought that although he was a bit slow to start, he was running on well at the finish. I don't know where he will go next, Elie (Lellouche) will have a good look at the programme book and then decide."

Largesse put in a good effort to get third place in a photo with Kahtan and trainer John Berry said: "I'm delighted, it was possibly his best run ever and it's nice to bounce back after the last run.

"He was suited by a more truly run race and better ground. I'm keen to go for the Yorkshire Cup, where he was beaten a neck last year but we're going to keep him off extremes of ground."

The disappointment of the race was the 11/4 favourite Ramruma, who trailed in last. "It's very disappointing and sad to see such a good filly beaten," said jockey Richard Quinn. "She ran nowhere near her form. We were beaten a good four furlongs out and she just stopped very quickly. Hopefully something minor will come up to explain it."



Neil Graham sent out a horse to win three times in a row for the first time when Rayyaan, who won by a whisker at the Craven meeting, repeated that narrow margin when he beat Strahan by a short head.

"It is very hard to win three races in a row with any horse, let alone in a competitive handicap like this," he said, before making his views felt about the value of the race and its owner's prize money of 5,934.

"I think it is derisory that a race like this at the Guineas meeting should have only 10,000 in added money," he said. "The William Hill Handicap at York later this month has 30,000 added and there is a race at Goodwood also later in May with 50,000 added," he explained with feeling.

Graham's horses have been in excellent form this spring, and he said that "all the difference is having horses which are healthy, which they certainly weren't last year.

"This horse has really improved and strengthened up since last season and he is very tough," Graham added, before nominating the Goodwood race of which he spoke earlier, the ABN Amro Stakes on May 24, as a likely next target for Sheikh Hamdan's colt.



Richard Hannon has high hopes of Cape Grace, who came back to form by holding the late effort of 25/1 Annapurna, staying on well through the final furlong after the runner-up had looked a big danger 150 yards out and winning by a length and three-quarters.

"This is a good filly and you will see a lot more of her," he forecast with confidence. "She got stuck in the mud when she ran at Kempton when she came to win her race but was found out by the soft ground; it was ground you would not have galloped horses on.

"That was her first run for about a year. She chipped a hock when she ran at Newbury behind Lucido and Oath, and she had to have the rest of last season off.

"I was lucky enough to get her back - her owner (George Strawbridge) did not take her back to America and I am sure she is a good filly.

"She is the only horse that her owner has with me, so I shall have to educate him a bit next time we meet," Hannon added. Strawbridge also has horses in this country with John Gosden and Ian Balding.

"She didn't have a lot of room at one stage and I was calling him (Dane O'Neill) all the names under the sun, but in the end the gap came in good time," said the trainer.

James Wigan, the winning owner's representative at the meeting, indicated that Cape Grace's next appearance is likely to be in France.



After two misfires earlier in the day, Godolphin had a first winner of the season in Britain when the newcomer Meiosis made all the running and stayed on strongly to win by seven lengths from Papabile.

"She is a nice filly, I don't think that she is a Group One filly, but Ted (Durcan) said that she could win a Group Three," said the Godolphin representative Brian Powell, who rode a number of winners for the Dickinsons in his days as a jump jockey.

"We were a bit worried after Entisar had disappointed earlier," Powell added, "but this is a nice filly with plenty of scope and we were confident that she would run a big race. I have no idea what the plans will be for her, but hopefully we shall be back here tomorrow and maybe we can tell you some more then.

"She was a bit green in the Dip, but so many horses are like that here, and Ted just had to send her about her business," Powell added.

This was a first winner in England for some years for Ted Durcan, who was champion jockey in Dubai this winter when he rode 60 winners in that country and took the title from Willie Supple.

"I was apprenticed for a year to Jack Berry a few seasons ago and rode 18 winners then, but I have not ridden in England for about three years."



John Gosden won the Challenge Whip for the second year in a row when 2-7 chance May Ball made all the running and beat her only rival, Countryside Friend, by three-quarters of a length.

The runner-up tried to make a race of it with two furlongs left but was soon fighting a losing battle.

"I like this race - it is a very pleasant introduction for horses who have not raced, though I would not run a horse who has raced in it," said Gosden. "She came here and learned a bit and enjoyed herself when she was doing that.

"This was really no more than a training race, like they have in America, and it is a good way for them to start. But don't tell the others or they will all be wanting to turn up !"


The Tote on-course cash betting turnover of 123,699 was up by 6% on last year's 116,741.


Sagitta, who are sponsoring the Guineas Festival for the third year, are delighted with the support they have received from owners and trainers during the three days of the meeting.

For the second year in a row there will be 11 runners in today's Sagitta Jockey Club Stakes. This is the third time in the last four years that the field for this Group 2 event has hit double figures; but before that you have to go back to 1983 to find more than nine runners taking part.

Last year's race was won by the now retired Silver Patriarch, and once again classic form will be represented this time by last year's Vodafone Oaks winner Ramruma, who is likely to go off as favourite.

This first day of the meeting also marks the first runners in England this season for the Godolphin team, who have Rhagaas in the Sagitta Jockey Club Stakes, but whose first British starter of 2000 will be Entisar in the Green Ridge Stables Newmarket Stakes 35 minutes earlier.

The field of 27 for the Sagitta 2,000 Guineas tomorrow will be the biggest for the first classic of the season since 1964 when Baldric 11, owned by an American and trained and ridden by French-based Australians, also beat 26 opponents. There were also 27 runners in 1951 and 1933.

The biggest field in the history of the race, which was first staged in 1809, was in 1930 when 27 horses followed Diolite across the line.

The field of 18 for Sunday's Sagitta 1,000 Guineas is slightly down on that of last season, but still compares very favourably with previous line-ups. Last year's 22 was the highest number of runners since Quick as Lightning headed home a field of 23 in 1980, and 25 took part when Flying Water was successful four years before that.


Her Majesty The Queen will officially open the Millennium Grandstand on the Rowley Mile at 12.30pm tomorrow.

She will arrive in an official car at 12.15pm at a point about two furlongs from the finish and stop in front of the stand, being met by the playing of the National Anthem by the band of the Life Guards.

She will then be officially greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk, Lord Belstead, and Newmarket Racecourses Trust Chairman, Peter Player, and will then pass through a guard of honour made up by jockeys who have won the Sagitta 2,000 Guineas. This is likely to include Lester Piggott, Pat Eddery, Willie Carson, Greville Starkey, Freddie Head, Jimmy Lindley, Joe Mercer, Michael Roberts and Jason Weaver.

Her Majesty will then meet a number of Jockey Club stewards and Newmarket directors, including RHT Chairman Christopher Sporborg and the Senior Steward of the Jockey Club Christopher Spence.

Before she opens the new Millennium Grandstand, The Queen will meet those responsible for the design and construction of the stand, as well as Wafic Said, chairman of the meeting's sponsors Sagitta Asset Management, and the Levy Board chairman Rob Hughes.

Before the official opening, The Queen will watch a free fall parachute display by the RAF Falcons team. Among that team's members is Flight Sergeant Headley who will present Her Majesty with the ceremonial scissors for cutting the ribbon. Her Majesty will then be taken on a tour of the new stand.
