THE QUEEN
OPENS NEW STAND




The Queen opened the new Millennium Grandstand on the Rowley Mile before racing.


She arrived on the course at noon and was greeted by the Lordn Lieutenant of Suffolk, Lord Belstead and Newmarket's Chairman Peter Player, before meeting a guard of honour comprising jockeys who have won the 2,000 Guineas.


That select band was headed by Lester Piggott, who won the race five times. Pat Eddery, Michael Roberts, Joe Mercer, Jimmy Lindley, Greville Starkey and Willie Carson were the others.


Her Majesty then watched a parachute display by members of the RAF Falcons and was handed the ceremonial scissors by them. She came round the stands to complete the opening.


As Peter Player asked her to perform the ceremony, he said that it was "a great honour" that The Queen had agreed to open the stand, and how fortunate racing was that she was so involved and knowledgeable about the sport.


The Queen cut the tapes of the cloth covering the official plaque.

GOING



After a second consecutive dry night the going on the Rowley Mile remains


GOOD.



The weather forecast is for another warm and dry day.




WINNING QUOTES FIRST RACE
RUINART CHAMPAGNE CONDITIONS STAKES

WELLBEING IS IMPROVING



"He is a nice horse, though he is still a baby, and he has really started to come to himself in the last month," said Henry Cecil after Vodafone Derby possible Wellbeing followed up his Craven meeting victory with a clear cut defeat of Gargalhada Final.


"He was very slow to learn last year and even in the spring he was reluctant to take hold of his bridle, but in the last month he has really started to improve and if he can keep improving at this rate he could be a good horse," the trainer went on.


Cecil was not in a position to name any immediate plans for the colt, as he does not want to drop him back in trip for the Predominate at Goodwood, and the Lingfield Derby Trial is too soon next week. "There really is not a race I can think of for him at the moment," he said.


He was, though, able to reveal bad news about another of his Epsom possibles, Bien Entendu, who will almost certainly not be able to run at Lingfield.


"He was working this morning when he started to hang badly, which he has never done before; he normally works very well," he said. "But when he pulled up a cap fell out of his mouth, and with the nerve there it was clearly hurting him. He will have to take it easy for a bit and I doubt if he will be able to go to Lingfield," Cecil explained.







RAMRUMA GOING TO BE FINE



Trainer Henry Cecil reported on Ramruma who finished last when favourite in yesterday's Group Two Sagitta Jockey Club Stakes.


He said this afternoon: "She pulled a muscle and was quite lame afterwards. There will be another day for her."





FIRST RACE PLACE QUOTES
RUINART CHAMPAGNE CONDITIONS STAKES


OFF TO THE ITALIAN OAKS



Miss Lorilaw, the only filly in the race, finished a creditable third to Wellbeing.


Her trainer John Hills said: "She will go to the Italian Oaks in two weeks time (Sunday, May 21, at San Siro Racecourse, Milan) as she ran really well. She won her trial as far as we are concerned."




WINNING QUOTES SECOND RACE
MAYER PARRY MAIDEN STAKES

"I HAVE PUT THEM ALL
AWAY," SAYS BALDING



"I am going to be very unpopular," said Ian Balding after Midnight Arrow had come from last to first to win well from Firework. "Andrew and I put all the guests on our table at the Sagitta lunch away when we were talking about her, because all the two-year-olds that we have run have been very green and disappointing.


"She has always shown a bit at home and would probably be the best of those that we have run, but they have all been so disappointing that I really could not recommend her to anyone."

It looked as if Balding would be right with two furlongs to go as the filly was comfortably last of the six runners, but Kieren Fallon told the trainer afterwards that he was always confident of success and it was only a question of making up his mind where to go.


When Midnight Arrow got going she fairly flew and, having mastered Hawk entering the final furlong, she stayed on strongly to win by two and a half lengths.


She was a very appropriate winner as she is owned by Bob Michaelson and Wafic Said, respectively the managing director and chairman of Sagitta, who are sponsoring the Guineas Festival.


"We have had her since she was born as Princess Oberon, whom Bob owns, lives with us and Emma (the trainer's wife) foaled the filly," added Balding, who will now think about the Queen Mary at Ascot for the Robellino filly.





WINNING QUOTES THIRD RACE
COUNTRYSIDE STEEL & TUBES HANDICAP


QUICK DOUBLE
FOR FALLON




Kieren Fallon went on to complete a 58.5-1 double when National Anthem, the 6-1 favourite, got the better of a hard fought tussle with Supply And Demand to win by a length and a half.



The colt, bred at their Wretham Stud near Thetford by Mr. and Mrs. Denis Haynes, was running for the first time this season but, as with his stablemate Blueprint yesterday, lack of a previous run this season was no handicap.






WINNING QUOTES FOURTH RACE
SAGITTA 2,000 GUINEAS STAKES

MICHAEL STOUTE ON KING'S BEAT



"It is a question of channelling his nervous energy in the right direction," said Sir Michael Stoute after King's Beat had exploded inside the final furlong to give the master of Freemason Lodge his fourth success in the season's opening classic.


"He has always been a horse I have liked a lot and when he won first time out Gary Stevens, who rode him then, said that he wondered if he ought to go back to America after all.


"Like so many thoroughbreds he has a lot of that nervous energy, but I was never happy with him on Dewhurst day when the big crowds there really got to him. It was the same to an extent on Craven day, but since then Kieren has been up to ride him almost every day - when he hasn't Gary Foster has done so - and that has made a big difference.


"I was much happier with him today than I had been on those other two big days, though he was sweating he was much more relaxed than he had been and it has been very much a team effort, it certainly is not all down to me.


"I put a noseband on him today to try to help him settle better - he had worn it at home a few times - and it certainly seems to have helped him to do that. You have to try to think of everything; it is all a question, as I said before, of channelling that energy.


"I don't know if he will stay a mile and a half and I certainly cannot commit myself at this stage to say that he will run in the Derby. I shall have to look at the film of the race and talk about it with Kieren before we make any decisions about Epsom.


"I can say, though, that at the Bushes I was trying to plan what his next race would be and I had no idea. I never thought he would be able to get through from where he was."

In spite of Stoute's current reservations about the Derby, King's Best is now favourite for Epsom in some lists. Chandler quote him as 6-1 favourite, he is 5-1 favourite (from 33) with Coral and 7-1 second favourite (Beat Hollow is their favourite) with the Tote.

SAGITTA 2,000 GUINEAS STAKES
KIEREN
FALLON



"I should have won this race last year when Enrique was second after getting badly bumped, and it is very good to have won it now," said Kieren Fallon after King's Best had given him his first success in the Sagitta 2,000 Guineas.


"I cannot say yet that he is the best horse I have ridden, but he is certainly one of the best and the acceleration he has shown is almost unbelievable. I have never ridden a horse who can quicken like that.


"He was much more settled today than he had been on Craven day, he just lobbed down to the start and lobbed along at the back when I wanted him to settle after the start. He was so relaxed that if they had only been cantering he would still have settled.


"It was a very, very rough race for some jockeys, they all seemed to want to be where there was only room for three horses. I did not ever get actually bumped, but for a long time I did not know if I was going to get a run.


"I had to settle him out at the back, but then there was the question of whether I would be able to get a run through or I would have to go outside horses. I am not saying that he would not have gone round them, but he likes coming between them.


"I did not want to end up behind a wall of horses, but that is what I did at one stage, but I was able to get a run and when he got through the speed he showed was incredible.

"I don't know if he will stay a mile and a half, that is a very big question, but I think he will handle the course at Epsom as he is a very handy horse. It could all depend if being at Epsom for the Derby gets to him, but he was certainly very relaxed today.


"I never worried about not getting a run, if I had not got one I would be in the stewards' room by now," grinned the champion jockey, giving the firm impression that he would have got space for King's Beat if he had had to!

This was Fallon's third consecutive success of the afternoon and he was completing a 445.25-1 treble.





FOURTH RACE PLACED QUOTES
THE SAGITTA 2000 GUINEAS

GROUND COSTS BARATHEA



Trainer George Margarson felt that the dried-out ground had cost third-placed Barathea Guest his chance of winning. "If it had been run last Saturday it would have been a different story," said the trainer. "It's heartbreaking because if the ground had been like it was last week we would have won.


"Philip (Robinson) felt he would win three out but he didn't have a clear run - he was bumped four or five times.


"The horse has done us proud but I am gutted because I honestly thought he would win. But take nothing away from King's Best, Sir Michael had done a fantastic job with him.


"We are gearing his whole season around the Dubai Champion Stakes at the end of the season when hopefully the ground will be to his liking. If the ground is on the soft side of good he will go for the Vodafone Derby and I would not be scared of anything or worried about the track - he'll act anywhere. He's also in the Coral-Eclipse and St James's Palace Stakes."

John Magnier, joint owner and breeder of the runner-up Giant's Causeway, said: "I don't think there are any excuses and I wouldn't think that he's a Derby horse."




FOURTH RACE
SAGITTA 2000 GUINEAS STAKES

BEATEN HORSES



Pat Eddery, who made the running on seventh-placed Primo Valentino, said: "He didn't stay."

Michael Hills, eighth on Distant Music, said: "His biggest asset, his ability to quicken, was not there. He still ran a good race."

Kevin Darley, 17th on French Fellow, said: "He was travelling really nicely but once they picked up he could not go with them."

Olivier Peslier, last on Bernstein, said: "He started well, followed the others but could not find anything in the final two furlongs."


ALFINI

Alfini, who broke a leg, was humanely put down.






BOOKIES REACTION



BLUE SQUARE'S 12/1 about King's Best for the Vodafone Derby quickly went and 6/1 is the best price offered by bookmakers now.





CROWD



The initial estimate of today's crowd is 20,000, up nearly 15% on last year's 17,000.





FIFTH RACE QUOTES
VICTOR CHANDLER PALACE HOUSE STAKES

SPEED QUEEN



Trainer Tim Easterby, who saddled Pipalong to victory, said: "She's a star, isn't she. She'll be the sprint queen this year. The plan was to run at York but she was so well that I decided to come here.


"If it is soft and six furlongs, she won't get beat."

He commented on his Sagitta 2000 Guineas runner French Fellow(17th): "The ground was a bit quick for him - he could not pick up in the last two furlongs."

Trainer Michael Jarvis was very pleased with his runner-up Kier Park. He said: "I was delighted with that - he just ran out of puff in the last 50 yards. If he had had a run previously, I think he would have won. He'll now go for the Temple Stakes or a five-furlong race at Chantilly."




WINNING QUOTES SIXTH RACE
LADBROKES HANDICAP

NO SURPRISE
TO PETER MAKIN



"This is a good horse and I am not surprised that he has won; what has amazed me is his SP of 25-1, I thought he was a 7 or 8-1 shot," said trainer Peter Makin after Sartorial had defied 10st and held off the bottom weight Cadeaux Cher by half a length.


"He got bogged down in that horrible gluey ground at Newbury last time, but even so the form of that race is solid and that of the maiden he won at Haydock is working out well.


"He was getting a bit tired near the line, but I think that was the 10st rather than the sixth furlong - I think he is just as good over six furlongs as he is over five.


"He sustained a stress fracture of his pelvis last year, I think he probably did it when he was beaten at Salisbury after having run well here; certainly when he was beaten at Wolverhampton Tony Clark said that he felt he was in trouble virtually from the start.


"So we gave him plenty of time off and gelded him," said Makin, who takes extra pleasure from the result as Sartorial is by his dual King's Stand Stakes winner Elbio. "He is the best winner Elbio has sired so far," he said.


Plans for Sartorial depend on what treatment he receives from the handicapper. "He can't get put up too much for that," said Makin perhaps more in hope that confidence.


"If he gets put up too much we shall start looking for Listed races here and on the continent; he likes genuinely good/good to soft ground; though he can go on good to firm, we would not want to risk him on it."

Makin added that stable star Imperial Beauty, narrowly touched off in the Prix de l'Abbaye last season, may make her 2000 debut in the Temple Stakes at Sandown. "She is coming along, but more sun would help her and she is really a summer and autumn filly," he said.





WINNING QUOTES SEVENTH RACE
JOHN MOWLEM CONDITIONS STAKES
"THIS GROUND WAS
FAR TOO FAST FOR WINNER,"



Trainer Geoff Wragg was adamant that the ground was far too fast for Island House, but in spite of that the chestnut was good enough to head Mutamam approaching the final furlong and hold that rival's renewed effort by half a length.


"He really wants to get his feet in so that was a good performance," the trainer went on, but he was not yet persuaded that the display warranted an advance to Group One company.


"I think the Prince of Wales's (at Ascot and now Group One) might be flying a bit high at the moment; but there are some races on the continent which could suit him and Baden-Baden might be a good place for him. Maybe later on he might be able to go to Hong Kong," Wragg said.


"I think that he was just about the first yearling by Grand Lodge ever to be sold at auction. We bought him at Deauville for about 90,000," the trainer added..






TOTE TURNOVER CRACKS
THE HALF MILLION MARK



Today's Tote on-course cash turnover beat the 1/2million mark for the first time on the Rowley Mile, though the precise figure is not yet available due to the last race at Uttoxeter not having been run until after the last at Newmarket. This represents an increase of about 15% on last year.
