QIPCO 2000 Guineas Contenders To Gallop

 Apr 17 2019

Racegoers attending tomorrow’s (Tuesday) first day of the three-day bet365 Craven Meeting at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse will be able to enjoy the added attraction of watching public workouts by Phoenix Of Spain and Advertise - two leading fancies for the Group 1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas run at the same venue on Saturday, 4th May.


Phoenix Of Spain  will be first to strut his stuff, galloping over seven furlongs in the company of a lead horse at 11.55am. A Group 3-winning son of Lope de Vega trained by Charlie Hills, Phoenix Of Spain has not been seen on a racecourse since he was beaten a head by Magna Grecia in the Group 1 Vertem Futurity at Doncaster last October.
 
At 12.15pm it will be the turn of Advertise, winner of the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes at The Curragh in August, then runner-up to the unbeaten Champion Two-Year-Old and QIPCO 2000 Guineas ante post favourite, Too Darn Hot, in the Group 1 Darley Dewhurst Stakes on the Rowley Mile two months later.

A son of Showcasing trained by Martyn Meade, Advertise will work over six furlongs in the company of a lead horse.
 
Further good news for racegoers is that tomorrow’s card has been extended to eight races by the division of the bet365 European Breeders’ Fund Fillies’ Maiden Stakes. The first division will get proceedings under way at 1.15pm and the action will run right through until 5.20pm, when the bet365 Handicap will come under starter’s orders.
