Andrew Balding and Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Have High Hopes for Classic Success 26/04/11

I Love Me, successful in a Tattersalls sales race on her debut last year, finished a close third behind Cape Dollar and Cochabamba in the seven-furlong Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket on October 16 last year and she will be returning to action in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas on Sunday, 1st May.

Cape Dollar
Trainer Andrew Balding is looking forward to running the Cape Cross filly, with Jimmy Fortune up, in the fillies’ Classic which has 23 going forward after today’s six-day stage, including the Richard Fahey trained Barefoot Lady who was supplemented today at a cost of £30,000, having won the seven-furlong Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket on 13th April.

Balding said today: “I Love Me has a fair bit to find on form but she has improved over the winter and a mile is right for her.

“She is working well and looking great. I am very happy with her and Jimmy Fortune will ride.”

Richard Hannon will saddle Memory, winner of the Group Two Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket in July last year but only sixth to Misty For Me in the Moyglare Stud Stakes on her final start of 2010.

The three-year-old filly is owned by the Masquerade Syndicate of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, whose managing director Harry Herbert commented today: “Memory is going really well. She had a seven-furlong gallop down the straight at Newbury a week ago and that seems to have put her right.

“She has been ticking over since and Richard Hannon was very pleased with that work and does not plan any more serious work.

“Memory is bigger and stronger than last year and much more relaxed at home. She looks fantastic and her owners, some of whom are experiencing ownership for the first time, are very excited to have a live chance in a Classic.”

Laughing Lashes, from Jessica Harrington’s County Kildare stables, defeated the Aidan O’Brien-trained Misty For Me in the Group Two Debutante Stakes at the Curragh before finding that rival a length superior when runner-up in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes at the same course on 29th August and they are due to clash again in the Newmarket Classic over a mile.

Also among those going forward for the QIPCO 1000 Guineas is last year’s champion juvenile filly Hooray. Sir Mark Prescott’s charge stormed to a four and a half-length victory in the Group One Adnams Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket in October.

Sir Michael Stoute has two fillies remaining, the unbeaten Group Three Sakhee Oh So Sharp Stakes winner Havant and Group Two Rockfel Stakes heroine Cape Dollar.

Godolphin handler Mahmood Al Zarooni could saddle course and distance winner Blue Bunting, successful in the Listed EBF Montrose Fillies’ Stakes, and the unbeaten Listed Radley Stakes winner Zoowraa.

As well as Misty For Me, O’Brien has Group Three winner Empowering and Together still entered.

Moonlight Cloud
The French could have three runners, headed by Moonlight Cloud from the Freddy Head yard. The Invincible Spirit filly impressed when winning the Group Three Prix Imprudence on April 7 and her only career defeat came against colts when fourth to Wootton Bassett in the Group One Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp in October.

Robert Collet could run the smart Immortal Verse, while his son, Rodolphe Collet, has Listed winner Nova Hawk.

Others still in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas include Group Two Queen Mary Stakes winner Maqaasid, the Barry Hills-trained Make A Dance, well backed at fancy odds in recent days, and Group Three winner Majestic Dubawi.

Good to Firm (Good in places) (Watering as necessary)

The stands’ side course will be utilised for the QIPCO Guineas Festival.

Newmarket’s Clerk of the Course and Director of Racing Michael Prosser said this afternoon: “We put 15 millimetres of water on the course during Friday and Saturday, cut the grass today and will resume watering tomorrow, with another 15 millimetres planned to go down by Wednesday.

“The temperatures will be cooler from tomorrow until Thursday when some rain is forecast in the evening and then there could a shower or two on Friday.

“Temperatures are set to pick up again for the QIPCO Guineas Festival on Saturday and Sunday. We will reassess the ground towards the end of the week and see whether we need to water again.”
