With combined entries up by 25% on last year and Group Race performers set to head the weights in both races, the £130,000 totesport Cambridgeshire Handicap on Saturday 2nd October and the £130,000 totesport Cesarewitch Handicap on Saturday 16th October, both run on Newmarket's Rowley Mile Racecourse, promise to be ultra-competitive, high class affairs this year. There are 133 entries in the 1m1f totesport Cambridgeshire, up from 108 last year, and 99 in the 2m2f totesport Cesarewitch, up from 78 last year.

The incentive of the £100,000 totesport Autumn Double bonus for any stable that can win both races has seen 25 trainers make entries in both races, with Sir Mark Prescott, Mark Johnston, Amanda Perrett, Michael Jarvis and Dermot Weld all looking to hold particularly strong hands at this early stage. If won, the trainer will receive £30,000 and the stable staff will share in the other £70,000.

totesport Cambridgeshire

In the totesport Cambridgeshire, Godolphin's ANCIENT WORLD, so impressive under top weight in the William Hill Mile at Goodwood in July before probably finding the rain-softened ground against him when favourite for the Group 3 totesport Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury last time, looks the likely top weight just ahead of David Elsworth's evergreen seven-year-old, PAWN BROKER. The latter went down by only half a length in the Group 3 Newmarket Darley Stakes over the totesport Cambridgeshire course and distance on Champions' Day last year and landed the third Listed Race victory of his career on his latest start on the July Course this season.

Sir Mark Prescott, who took the race 12 months ago with Chivalry, has a trio of entries in the race, most notably MASAFI, who rattled up 7 victories in just 18 days in July. He has also entered COAT OF HONOUR, winner of the Sterling Insurance Summer Stakes at Goodwood in July, and the lightly raced PEDRILLO who could be anything after just three runs, the latest of which was an easy victory in a Brighton maiden when stepped up to 7 furlongs.

Mark Johnston's quartet of entries includes a trio of winners this season in GOLD HISTORY, successful in a Listed Race over course and distance in April, MASTER MARVEL, who won a handicap at the UltimateBet.com Guineas Festival in May over a mile, and MYSTICAL GIRL.

Amanda Perrett's four entries include the impressive winner of the ladbrokes.com Handicap at Goodwood, ART TRADER, who looks very much on the upgrade, while Michael Jarvis's three entries include ST ANDREWS, who looked to have a big handicap in him after failing so narrowly in the valuable totescoop6 Stakes at Sandown earlier this season, and PUTRA KUANTAN, successful in a Sandown handicap in May.

Dermot Weld, who can never be overlooked with his overseas raiders, has two entries in BATTLING MAC and PRIZE TIME, with the former looking particularly interesting having won three races in a row in September and October last year and having shown steady improvement in three runs to date this season.

Other in-form entries to take the eye include the Gay Kelleway-trained VORTEX, Geoff Wragg's AUTUMN GLORY and Patrick Chamings' TAKE A BOW, who has been a force to be reckoned with this season.

totesport Cesarewitch

Dual Ascot Gold Cup (Group 1) winner, ROYAL REBEL, is certain to head the weights in the totesport Cesarewitch and is one of 8 entries for Mark Johnston. Though perhaps not quite the horse he once was after the best part of two years off the course following his 2002 Gold Cup victory, his 4th place in this year's Gold Cup and second place in the Lady O Goodwood Cup (Group 2) still make him a force to be reckoned with.

Another fascinating Johnston entry is the ex-French-trained PUSHKIN, beaten only a head in the Prix du Cadran (Group 1) at Longchamp two years ago before moving to Dubai where he had just the one run for Kevin McAuliffe. The six-year-old has yet to race for Johnston. DOUBLE OBSESSION, ALWAYS WAINING and YOSHKA, all with winning form this year, are other Johnston entries to take the eye.

Sir Mark Prescott has 7 very strong contenders in the race, who between them have racked up a plethora of victories in the last two seasons. They include NO REFUGE, as yet unraced this year, but who won 4 handicaps and was never out of the first three in 8 starts last year; ONE OFF, winner of 6 races in a row last year and who made a satisfactory reappearance in a Listed Race in Ireland on Sunday; FALL IN LINE who has not run since landing 6 in a row on the all-weather at the start of this year; TEMPSFORD, who won 5 races last year; and ELUSIVE DREAM, a winner of 4 races in a row last month.

Amanda Perrett also has 7 entries, notably BIG MOMENT, who has run consistently well in three big handicaps this season; TEN CARAT, a winner of three in a row last year; the lightly raced, but improving IT'S A LIMIT; the well-bred, twice-raced four-year-old MAGICAL QUEST, who could be anything after bolting up in a maiden last time; and two improving three-year-olds in SOULACROIX and TUNGSTEN STRIKE.

Michael Jarvis's trio includes his impressive Chester Cup winner, ANAK PEKAN, and PEAK OF PERFECTION, who won three races in a row in June and July.

Dermot Weld has once again entered one of his stable stalwarts, DIRECT BEARING, who went down by only a head in this race two years ago and was fourth last year. He has been kept to chasing so far this year. Weld has also entered ANSAR, who won the Grade 1 Galway Plate on has latest start though has not won on the flat for four years, while his trio is completed by the lightly raced three-year-old, ORPINGTON, winner of his last two races.

Others to note amongst the entries include DOROTHY'S FRIEND, a winner of 6 of his last 9 starts for trainer Roger Charlton; the winner of the totesport Cesarewitch in 2001, DISTANT PROSPECT, who also finished a very creditable 4th two years ago and 7th last year for trainer Andrew Balding; NUMITAS, who finished in midfield in this race last year when trained by Sir Mark Prescott and who has gained plenty of confidence in three recent easy novice hurdle victories for Philip Hobbs; and CUPBOARD LOVER, who won three out of five on the flat in 2002 after switching back from a successful period over hurdles, but who has been off the course for the last 18 months. He represents Nicky Henderson's stable, who sent out Landing Light to win this race last season.

Michael Prosser, Clerk of the Course at Newmarket, commented: "We could not be happier with the entries for these two historic handicaps and I am sure that there will be a ferocious ante-post market for both the Autumn Double races once totesport open their book when the weights are announced next week."

Newmarket's July Racecourse will tomorrow become the first turf course in Britain to use the new Steriline starting stalls, made in Australia. The stalls, which have been extensively trialled at Wolverhampton and are now also being used at Southwell, have been modified and improved in some aspects of their design by the Jockey Club following early trials.

"We are delighted to be the first turf course to use these new stalls tomorrow," commented Newmarket's Clerk of the Course, Michael Prosser. "It is very appropriate that it should be taking place at Newmarket as we were the first course in the country to use starting stalls when they were very first introduced.

"Our parent company, Racecourse Holdings Trust, is buying a number of sets of the new stalls which Racetech will operate for us. The 16 bay set that we are using tomorrow is the first one to be operational. We will use them for 7 of tomorrow's 8 races - the other race has more than 16 runners, so we will need to use the old stalls for that. By next season we will have a 14 as well as a 16 bay set, so we will be able to use them for all our races on both courses here."

Sim Harris, Managing Director of Racetech, said: "There have been very positive reactions from the jockeys, trainers and stalls handlers at Wolverhampton. They are a much newer design than our old, existing stalls and are highly unlikely to jam. They are much easier to open if a horse needs rescuing, making them much safer for the horses, and they are much quieter in their operation. They are the best lightweight stalls on the market and are used in countries like Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai, as well as in several European countries.

"The stalls we are using have been shipped in from Australia and are the standard Steriline dimensions, but with modifications and improvements requested by our Jockey Club."


Both Parts 1 and 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale are out today, with both catalogues /being mailed together and comprising a total of 2093 yearlings between them. Part 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale will be the largest yearling sale ever in Europe, numbering 1302 lots selling from Monday 11th – Saturday 16th October.

Commenting on Part 2 of the October Yearling Sale, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

"Just as with Part 1, we have been overwhelmed by the demand for places in the new look October Yearling Sale Part 2, and the strength in depth has exceeded all expectations. The quality of the stallions and consignors represented is outstanding, and there is the considerable added incentive of the 1302 yearlings being the only qualifiers for the £250,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes, which is the most valuable race of its kind in Europe."

In total 34 of the current top 40 British and Irish based sires are represented including Classic/Group 1 sires ALHAARTH (13 yearlings), CADEAUX GENEREUX (3), CAPE CROSS (10), DAYLAMI (11), DR FONG (16), EFISIO (10), FASLIYEV (9), GRAND LODGE (14), HERNANDO (12), IN THE WINGS (9), INDIAN RIDGE (2), MARJU (7), PEINTRE CELEBRE (4), PIVOTAL (14), RAINBOW QUEST (3), ROYAL APPLAUSE (15), SELKIRK (4), SINGSPIEL (13), and ZAFONIC (8).

Of the sires with 2004 first crop two year olds nine of the current top ten in Britain and Ireland are represented including GIANT'S CAUSEWAY, KING'S BEST (6), MONTJEU (3), NAMID (10) and XAAR (12). The lone yearling by GIANT'S CAUSEWAY, already the sire of the unbeaten Group 2 winner and current 2,000 Guineas favourite SHAMARDAL, is the filly first foal out of the Champion and multiple Group/Grade 1 winner HAPPYANUNOIT. The filly is being consigned by agent Ted Voute who sold SHAMARDAL for 50,000 guineas at the 2003 Tattersalls Houghton Yearling Sale. Voute's consignment numbers 33 yearlings and also includes the half brother to the much missed PERSIAN PUNCH from the first and only crop of Champion Sprinter MOZART.

The largest consignor is agent Jamie Railton whose 40 strong team includes yearlings from the first crop of Group 1 winners AGNES WORLD, KALANISI and MEDICEAN, as well as yearlings by established Classic sires ALHAARTH, CELTIC SWING, HERNANDO, LEAR FAN, MARK OF ESTEEM, PIVOTAL and RAINBOW QUEST.

The top Irish consignors are also well to the fore with recent Houghton or October Yearling Sale topping consignors Ballygallon Stud, Camas Park Stud and Knocktoran Stud all bringing quality consignments. The largest team from Ireland comes from Tony O'Callaghan's Tally Ho Stud and comprises 17 yearlings by top sires DANEHILL DANCER, MUJADIL, and ROYAL APPLAUSE and also by exciting first crop sires BECKETT, BERTOLINI and dual Derby winner GALILEO.

The French based European Sales Management, which sold the 525,000 guineas second top price colt by KINGMAMBO at Part 1 of last year's October Yearling Sale, also has an eyecatching draft which features colts by BARATHEA, KING'S BEST and RAINBOW QUEST as well as a filly from the first crop of Champion FANTASTIC LIGHT.
