Sandiva strikes for Dettori
Sandiva laid down her Classic credentials in the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket. The daughter of Footstepsinthesand was positioned in midfield under a confident Frankie Dettori ride and had too much class for Euro Charline and Godolphin's well-supported Majeyda when push came to shove. The Richard Fahey-trained 7-2 favourite shaped as though she would be suited to the extra yardage in the Qipco 1000 Guineas on May 4 as she stayed on ...read more

Power runs Free at Newmarket
Shifting Power had to pull out all the stops to justify 13-8 favouritism in the Listed CSP European Free Handicap at Newmarket.

The son of Compton Place was a ready winner on the July Course last season beating subsequent Acomb Stakes winner Treaty Of Paris by six lengths, and he holds an entry in the Qipco 2000 Guineas along wi...read more

Silvestre de Sousa had the 5-2 chance positioned in midfield and althou...read more

Kingman well-being delights Gosden
Kingman, impressive winner of the Aon Greenham Stakes at Newbury on Saturday, is reported by trainer John Gosden to be in good order.

Toormore on trial in Craven
Toormore gets the chance to cement his Classic claims as he puts his unbeaten record on the line in the Novae Bloodstock Craven Stakes at Newmarket on Thursday.
