1000 Guineas: Havant in focus

- Royal Ascot Special
- Newmarket July Special

Newmarket: Sir Michael Stoute's top contender Havant, with two wins from two runs in her first season, looks a very exciting prospect for the new campaign. She has been favourite in the Qipco 1,000 Guineas (G1) betting for some time but connections have been worried by the lack of rain in Newmarket these days.

She is also prominent in the betting for the Oaks, though the Guineas mile is unlikely to be too short for this talented daughter of Halling. She won nicely on her debut at the July course in Newmarket in late August despite not being quite ready and showed significant improvement to win the Oh So Sharp Stakes (G3) on the Rowley Mile course five weeks later. Havant was a slow starter that day, but made up ground and came with an excellent finish to grab the lead with over a furlong to go. From there on and in, it was a one-horse affair. Havant opened up a clear lead to win by 3 lengths from the Irish trained contender Look At Me. There was another 1 lengths back to the third placed Khawlah, winner of the UAE Derby (G2) this year.

Havant needed only two outings to stamp herself as one of the best in her division last year, and there is so much to like about this filly. She is a May foal, just the type to progress with age, and she holds a leading chance in this classic. Any rain prior to May 1 would be in her favour.
