ULTIMATEBET.COM GUINEAS FESTIVAL
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
NEWMARKET, SUNDAY, MAY 2, 2004



SMILES ALL ROUND

Terrific racing, great crowds, fine weather, and, particularly important, happy sponsors - that was how Lisa Hancock, managing director at Newmarket, summed up the UltimateBet.com Guineas Festival.


She said: ”It has been a fantastic weekend, and we have had two hugely popular home-bred Guineas winners.


“The reception which greeted Attraction after the UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas was simply incredible. It was such a super result for British breeding, and British racing is the winner.


“We were also extremely lucky with the weather, especially with so much of the country having been badly hit by the rain, and today’s attendance looks very encouraging.


“And UltimateBet.com have had a great introduction to their sponsorship. Everyone is chuffed to bits the way things have gone over the past two days, and we are all looking forward to another bumper racing year at Newmarket.”

STAR ATTRACTION

The remarkable Attraction led from pillar to post to land the UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas by half a length from the fast-finishing Sundrop. Racing for her breeder, the Duke of Roxburghe, the Efisio filly was unbeaten in five runs as a two-year-old - ending the year as champion juvenile filly - but injury forced her to miss the rest of last year after winning the Cherry Hinton Stakes in July.


Attraction was not sent to the sales because of her well-publicised conformation faults and bad knees and trainer Mark Johnston said: “I’m beginning to get fed up with the negative talk about her conformation. More has been made of it than there should have been - there are much worse than her in training.


“There has been nothing wrong with her all winter, her knees are better than ever - she managed to win five times last season with the knees and another race here.


“We have always been very open about her problems, she had boney changes in her knees and fractured her pedal bone - that was it.


“She was a champion two-year-old and is now a classic winner at three, I wouldn’t ask anything more of her now and anything else is a bonus. She owed us nothing. We’ll have a few drinks tonight before deciding what she’ll do now.


“Last year I was careful and always said she was the best of her age group I had trained, now I can say she is the best.

“She stayed on beautifully up the hill but I must admit my heart was in my mouth a furlong and a half out.”

Jockey Kevin Darley added: “She’s an exceptional filly and cantering down she was so relaxed in herself, that’s the great thing about her. She got the run of the race and I think took the sting out of them with her early pace although she was a bit tired in the last furlong and half.”

The Duke of Roxburghe, who bred the filly at his Floors Stud at Floors Castle near Kelso, admitted: “We are not a big operation and this is the most exciting thing that could happen to anyone involved in breeding. I’ve had dreams about this day for the last few months, she’s finished everywhere from first to last and this still feels like a dream.


“We were convinced she would never come back, at one stage we were advised that she would never run again but Mark’s vets said she could come back.


“She went lame in the last week of August and her knees had to be nerve-blocked. There had been quite significant bone changes to the knees and we sent the x-rays to the top vets in Newmarket, who advised that she should be retired but Mark’s vet said that we should try and get her back.


“She was then lame before the Cheveley Park Stakes and had cracked a pedal bone - she broke her manger at Mark’s and I think it could have been a hangover from that.


“In hindsight that was the best thing that could have ever happened to her.She came back to Floors for two months’ box rest and was pretty lively, especially as she was being fed a lot on Mark’s recommendation. She went back to Mark on November 30 last year and has been 100 per cent since then.”

Roxburghe has 16 mares, some of which are in partnership with Lord Hartington and their advisor John Warren. Flirtation, Efisio’s dam, is in foal to Oasis Dream.


CHAMPION TWO-YEAR-OLD FILLIES IN THE UltimateBet.com 1000 GUINEAS

Attraction became the fourth official champion two-year-old filly to win the following year's UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas and the first since Shadayid completed the double in 1989 and 1990.Below are listed the champion two-year-old fillies and their Guineas positions since the European Free Handicap was first published in 1978.

SUNDROP TO THE VODAFONE OAKS

Sundrop, who finished well to be the half-length second to Attraction, will now be aimed at the second British fillies’ classic, the Vodafone Oaks at Epsom on June 4.


The Godolphin-owned filly was ridden by Kerrin McEvoy who said: “The further we have travelled the more she has picked up underneath me.

“Approaching the two-furlong marker, I was pretty confident that we were going to win but she was closest at the line - she is a genuine filly.


“I had to move over after coming out of stall one and join the other group which was probably a good idea in the end - I followed Red Bloom and Majestic Desert and went by them two and a half out. She is a real big-race contender.”

Another Godolphin runner, Carry On Katie, finished sixth and her rider Frankie Dettori said: “She ran very well. They took me on far too early and I hit a flat spot but then she ran on again up the hill.

“It was a great effort. Carry On Katie is much more relaxed and I think she will give a good account of herself in France in two weeks’ time (Gainsborough Poule d'Essai des Poulains at Longchamp).”

Simon Crisford, Godolphin’s racing manager, commented: “It was a good effort by Sundrop and we are delighted. She definitely wants further and will be going for the Vodafone Oaks.

“Frankie felt that Carry On Katie stayed very well and she finished up strongly - it was really encouraging and she might go to France for the French Guineas.”

Saeed bin Suroor, the Godolphin trainer, said: “Sundrop probably needed this race and a mile and half. She is a class filly who is very honest and I was really happy with her performance.
“Carry On Katie ran good while I think Cairns (the third Godolphin runner who finished 10th) needs a shorter distance - she has speed and seven furlongs may be her maximum distance.”

Bookmakers now maker Sundrop favourite for the Oaks - at odds from 3-1 (Coral, Tote & Ladbrokes) to 6-1 (Cashmans)

“DON’T WRITE OFF RED BLOOM” - FALLON

Kieren Fallon, while disappointed that Red Bloom could fare no better than fourth in her quest to emulate Russian Rhythm by taking the UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas for Cheveley Park Stud and Sir Michael Stoute, predicts that there is better still to come from his filly, who went off the 4-1 favourite.


The jockey said: ”The Guineas comes plenty early enough for fillies, and, though I felt she was there, perhaps I was wrong.


“She did not quicken up as well as I thought she would, and we were off the bridle some way out. I am sure she will do better later on - she is a good filly.”

HATHRAH POSSIBLE FOR FRENCH OAKS

Sheikh Hamdan came within a length of pulling off the UltimateBetcom 1000-2000 Guineas double this year when Hathrah finished a brave third behind Attraction in today’s fillies’ classic, but connections were unanimous that they were beaten fair and square.


John Dunlop, who trains Hathrah, said:”She was some way off the top fillies last year, so she has come a long way up the ladder and that was a smashing run.


“Hathrah will either go to Epsom for the Vodafone Oaks or to Chantilly for the French equivalent, and, while Sheikh Hamdan will have the final say, I would lean towards the Prix de Diane as I would prefer the next jump be to ten and a half furlongs rather than a mile and a half.”

Richard Hills confessed that at the bottom of the hill he felt he might be poised to follow up the success of Haafhd in yesterday’s colt’s classic.


He said: ”That was when I thought I might reel in Attraction, but, though she had gone a fair lick from the start, she kept on going.


“However, while a mile will be Attraction’s maximum, Hathrah is a staying filly, and, while I am not sure she would get a mile and a half, I would be confident about the 10 furlongs.”

Dunlop was also pleased with the seventh Nataliya, who ran fast for a long way and just tied up on the hil, though Spotlight, his third runner, struggled to go the pace and came home last of the 16 runners.


The Arundel trainer said:”Nataliya has run well and, for a moment in the Dip, I thought she might hang on to finish in the money, but, ultimately, she did not quite get the mile, whereas Spotlight got very stirred up in the preliminaries and, in any event, probably wants a mile and a quarter.”


HAAFHD BOUND FOR ROYAL ASCOT

Sheikh Hamdan al Maktoum, owner-breeder of Saturday’s UltimateBet.com 2000 Guineas winner Haafhd, confirmed today that his brilliant miler will stick to a mile and be aimed at the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.


“We have weighed up the options, but there are doubts about the mile and a half, so we will miss the Derby and wait for Royal Ascot,” said the Sheikh.


Angus Gold, his racing manager, said: “Haafhd is fine after his exertions. It looked as if he had a tough race, but Richard Hills said that he actually gave a buck as he went past the post - he was obviously well pleased with himself.”


FIRST RACE WINNING QUOTES
CURTIS MEDICAL RATED STAKES

KINANE STORMS HOME IN OPENER

Mick Kinane brought home the Amanda Perrett-trained Royal Storm to score by a head from Seel Of Approval in the opening Curtis Medical Rated Stakes.


“We were going to run yesterday but (clerk of the course) Michael Prosser said the ground would probably dry out further so we waited for today,” said Perrett.


“The horse was in tip-top form beforehand and can run over six furlongs or seven. He loves it here and I suppose the Wokingham would be the right race for him at Royal Ascot.


“He’s owned by Barry and Gloria Cloran who bought a car off Dad (Guy Harwood) and he suggested they buy a horse. They like him to run as often as possible and the horse thrives on it.”

FIRST RACE PLACE QUOTES

MAZEPA ON WAY BACK

Neville Callaghan’s horses remain at the top of their form, and, despite finishing only third in the opener with Royal Storm, the Newmarket trainer was “well pleased.”

He said:”Mazepa was beaten less than a length, and he is on the way back.


“He is a hard horse to get fit and he was a bit lack-lustre first time out, but that was a big improvement and I am sure that there is a decent sprint in him.


“In fact, the sprinters are so closely matched that we could run the likes of Mazepa in these valuable handicaps, or look at Listed and Group Threes.”

Jockeys generally agreed with the official description of “good going”, though, while Robert Winston felt that it was “on the easy side of good,” Kieren Fallon, Frankie Dettori and Michael Kinane were all of the view that “it has dried out a touch since yesterday.”

Kinane, the winning rider in the first, added: “I think having the stalls in the centre makes the Guineas a fairer race. If you put the stalls on the stands’ side in a big field, everybody wants to come across and you get a lot of crowding.”

SECOND RACE WIN QUOTES

EMOTIONAL WIN FOR BENEVENTA

The success of Beneventa in the Group 3 Letheby & Christopher Dahlia Stakes was tinged with sadness as Rabi Khan, who owned the filly in partnership with her trainer John Dunlop, sadly passed away earlier this week.


Beneventa ran in snatches but she really picked up when she met the rising ground and lengthened up the hill to win by two and a half lengths from Silence Is Golden, who also got going late after looking to be struggling.


Paying tribute to Mr Khan, who had many good horses with both Dick Hern and Clive Brittain, Dunlop said:”He was the most charming man, and his widow specifically asked that we still go ahead and run.


“Beneventa is a nice, tough, genuine filly, and she might have had the edge in fitness on some of the others, but I could not be more pleased.”

Former jockey Willie Carson was associated with so many of Khan’s horses, and he was visibly touched by his friends’s death.


He said:”He was a true gentleman, and I rode many of his good horses, like Kaytu and Red Johnnie.


“He has been involved in racing for the best part of 30 years, and he used to send his chauffeur to pick me up. He was always so kind, and I shall miss him.”

LETHEBY & CHRISTOPHER DAHLIA STAKES (GROUP 3)

GOLDEN GETS SILVER

Silence Is Golden had to settle for second place as she stayed on two and a half lengths behind Beneventa in the Group 3 Letheby & Christopher Dahlia Stakes.


“I was very pleased with that and maybe she would have appreciated another furlong. I think the form of this race was very good,” said the mare’s trainer, Brian Meehan.


“She has improved since winning the Rosebery at Kempton and we might think about something like the Middleton at York now. She’s a game old bird and in foal to Medicean and can keep running until the end of July.”

FALLON ENTHUSES OVER GAMUT’S TALENTS

Champion jockey Kieren Fallon was waxing lyrically over the merits of Gamut after Sir Michael Stoute’s consistent five-year-old had ground out a game success over Systematic and Warrsan to win the Group 2 UltimateBet.com Jockey Club Stakes.


Fallon, confessing that Gamut is one of his favourites, said: ”When you ride horses like this fellow, who tries his hardest for you and is difficult to get by it is impossible not to fall in love with them.


“It was the same with Stack Rock and Medicean - both were real honest performers whose motto was ‘though shalt not pass’, and you don’t come along them too often.


“I was gutted when Gamut was short-headed in the John Porter Stakes at Newbury last time - I felt sure that the photo-finish would go our way - but this has made up for that disappointment.”

Sally Eddery rides Gamut regularly at home and was on hand to welcome the winner back, and Stoute conceded that she was a valuable part of the team.


As for future plans, it depends on the ground as Gamut likes to get his toe in.


Stoute said:”He travelled well and when the split came and Kieren got him into top gear he did the job well. The Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot would be his race, and I just hope he gets his ground.”

DUNLOP FORESEES BIG FUTURE FOR OUIJA BOARD

Ouija Board is as low as 8/1 with Corals for the Vodafone Oaks after her runaway six-length success in the R L Davison Pretty Polly Stakes in the historic black and white silks of Lord Derby.


Prior to today’s race, connections had been favouring a tilt at the shorter French Oaks but a trip to Epsom now looks on the cards.


Winning trainer Ed Dunlop admitted the success was not a surprise and said: “She had been working very well at home, she settled well off a slow pace and it’s amazing she achieved what she did at two. She’s from the family of Teleprompter so should improve from two to three and again from three to four.


“Beforehand (Lord Derby’s brother) Peter Stanley suggested that on pedigree she would struggle to get a mile and a half but Kieren got off and said she’d have no trouble staying the trip there. He said that if the decision was his, he would go to Epsom and to me there is only one Oaks.”

Lord Derby, whose family gave its name to the world’s most famous race, added: “She is the best horse I have ever had and I was very nervous to see her tipped up in the Cambridge Evening News last night but it’s wonderful to win a race on 1000 Guineas day.


“The Oaks and Derby have to be a dream for any owner, especially for me, and the dream is a bit closer now.”

BRINDISI RUNS OUT OF PETROL
There can’t be many better maidens in training than Brindisi, who had his Listed rivals stone cold passing the Bushes but stopped quickly on the climb to the post, eventually finishing fourth behind Ouija Board.


Barry Hills, who trains Brindisi, said: ”I thought she was going to come home alone at the two-pole, but she didn’t stay.


“Her dam (Genoa) won over 11 furlongs, but she is by Dr Fong, so there was always a doubt. We’ll drop her back to a mile and, hopefully, we’ll get lucky.”


CARRIE ON A HIGH
Carrie Sanderson, the stable girl who looks after Attraction, the UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas heroine, went home Ù1,100 better off - courtesy of the sponsors.


Not only did Carrie pick up “a grand” for leading up the winner, but Attraction also won the prize as “best turned out filly”, so she earned an extra Ù100 for all her hard work.

REHEARSAL TAKES CENTRE STAGE


Exciting times might lie ahead for Rehearsal, who received a vociferous reception from members of the Elite Racing Club when breaking his maiden with a convincing two and a half length success over Never Will and Credit.


Winning trainer Clive Cox said: “Rehearsal has such a lovely temperament, and the Elite team’s patience is beginning to pay off.


“Being by Singspiel we never expected him to make a two-year-old, and he was slow to mature, but he showed a lot of promise on his debut at Newbury last month and has built on that today.


“Philip (Robinson) was impressed and we might come back here for a 10-furlong Listed race - he looks as if he will stay further.”

PORTLAND LODGE HANDICAP

MASTER ROUNDS OFF MARVEL-LOUS DAY FOR JOHNSTON

Middleham handler Mark Johnston rounded off an unforgettable day when Maktoum Al Maktoum’s progressive home-bred Master Marvel made it two wins from three starts when landing the concluding Portland Lodge Handicap.



The Selkirk colt was completing a 44.5/1 double for Johnston on the back of Attraction’s UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas triumph.



“He had a few problems last year so didn’t run at two,” said Johnston.

“And so he has had only three runs and I hope he can keep progressing.”

Kevin Darley, who was unseated at the start from Mister Saif, returned back uninjured.



GROUND REMAINS GOOD

There was no overnight rain and the official going remains ‘Good’ for the second day of the UltimateBet.com Guineas Festival at Newmarket today.


Michael Prosser, the clerk of the course, walked the track and reported that his stick recorded 8.2, the same figure as yesterday.


Prosser said: “Nothing has changed, and the starting stalls are also in the same place - in the centre for the UltimateBet.com-sponsored 1000 Guineas and Jockey Club Stakes, and on the stands’ side for the other races.”

Reflecting on yesterday’s UltimateBet.com 2000 Guineas, in which the jockeys opted to spread out, Prosser conceded that he had found it “strange.”

He said: “It was strange, especially as I had stressed beforehand that there was no perceivable advantage, and I think that both the mile and a quarter and six-furlong handicaps endorsed that view.


“I can only think that the jockeys uncertainty was heightened by the various pacemakers, who seemed unclear which route to take, but, despite the confusion, I can take heart from the fact that everyone is in agreement that Haafhd was the best horse on the day and that he would have won however the race had panned out.”

However, Prosser remains hopeful that for today’s fillies’ classic the field will come up the centre as a group.


He added: “I would hope that jockeys now know that there is no advantage by switching to one side or the other, and, with plenty of horses having come up both the stands’ rail and the far side yesterday, the best ground ought to be up the middle.”

PHANTOM WIND OUT

Phantom Wind was withdrawn this morning from today’s UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas field, leaving a total of 16 runners for the first fillies’ classic at Newmarket.


John Gosden, who, as with Lahan in 2000, had been involved in a race against time to get Phantom Wind ready for the Guineas, pulled out the filly when she went down with a temperature.


The trainer said: “It’s a shame, but that’s racing. We had been battling against the clock, but now we will prepare for a tilt at either the French or Irish 1,000 Guineas.”


BETTING MOVES

Punters, who might be in trouble come the last of the 14 races at the two-day UltimateBet.com Guineas Festival, face a tricky 21-runner handicap down the Rowley Mile for the “getting out” mission, but the Portland Lodge Handicap (5pm) is still proving the best betting heat of the day.


Hills, Paddy Power and the Tote all report plenty of activity, with Clive Cox’s Thyolo the “buzz” horse, having been backed from 9-1 to 13-2 with the Irish firm, while Hills, who opened up at 8-1, took similar evasive action, as did the Tote, who chopped him from 7-1 to 11-2.


And, despite disappointing when well fancied at last month’s Craven meeting at Newmarket, plenty of punters are prepare to give Mick Channon’s Mahmoom another chance, with Hills cutting his odds to 5-1 from 13-2, while Paddy Power took good money at 6-1 and are now a top-priced 11-2.


That apart, it has been a relatively quiet morning in the offices, but Paddy Power also report interest in Seal of Approval (11-2 from 13-2) in the opener, the Curtis Medical Rated Stakes, and also for French challenger Special Delivery in the Listed Letheby & Dahlia Stakes, the filly having been clipped a point to 10-1, while there was also no shortage of Gallic support for Andre Fabre’s Martaline in the Ultimate.Bet.com Jockey Club Stakes, with the five-year-old, recommended by Pricewise in the Racing Post, hardening to 8-1 from 9-1.


And, though thePost predict that Ouija Board will be around a 9-2
chance for the R L Davison Pretty Polly Stakes, Corals have seen plenty of money flying around for Ed Dunlop’s filly and predict that he will go off favourite - “about 2-1" suggested spokesman Dave Stevens.


Only bits and pieces have been seen in the feature race, the UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas, and, doubtless, the morning withdrawal of Phantom Wind was partly responsible for Paddy Power firming up both Carry On Katie (10-1 from 12-1) and Secret Charm (11-1 from 12-1).
