Racing’s Exciting Return and 2000 Guineas Thoughts

Good Morning all,

The resumption of British horse racing is just a week away. I’m excited but also a shade nervous as to something scuppering it from happening. 

From the first week it starts with a bang. On the Wednesday we have the rescheduled Group 3 Classic Trial and the Listed Snowdrop Fillies Stakes at Kempton.

On Thursday Newcastle plays host to the Group 3 Pavilion Stakes, normally run at Ascot, and which was won last year by Calyx.

Friday, brings even more exciting action. The Group 1 Coronation Cup will take place at Newmarket. Whilst over at Lingfield its the Derby and Oaks Trials.

Saturday sees the first Classic of the season the Qipco 2000 Guineas.

On Sunday it’s Qipco 1,000 Guineas Day. Haydock is also set to race with the feature race being the Group 3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes which is normally run at Sandown.

Assuming it goes ahead the revised Royal Ascot will take place at its normal time in the calendar. It will feature seven races on the first four days and eight on the Saturday. The extra races include a ‘Silver’ Royal Hunt Cup and ‘Silver’ Wokingham for those horses that miss the cut in the main races.

Yep, some fantastic racing to look forward. We have waited for what seems like an age but it’s now so tantalising close.

Anyway, this week I’m having a look at the 2000 Guineas. You can read my thoughts inside.
