Article by Gary Christie.

The first classics of the season take place on Newmarket's Rowley Mile course this weekend, with the 1000 & 2000 Guineas attracting high class fields. There are 29 colts left in the 2000 Guineas on Saturday at the time of writing, with my fancy King Of Happiness still in alongside strong favorite Hawk Wing. Kieron Fallon's mount won the Craven Stakes at Newmarket for this column a couple of weeks ago in only his second career start rather impressively. If he wins he will be maintaining an impressive recent record in the race for his handler Sir Michael Stoute, who won it in 2000 with Kings Best and last year with Golan. Champion trainer Aiden O'Brien from Ireland has the favourite Hawk Wing, and this imposing individual sets a very high standard having won the Group 1 National Stakes as a juvenile, and looks the type to improve a lot as a three-year-old. There are plenty of strong contenders however, not least Love Regardless trained by the best in the country in my opinion, Mark Johnston. This Storm Bird colt will be making his seasonal reappearance here, having won an egg and spoon race at Newcastle last year impressively on his only start to date. There are a few more with place claims of course, most notably the French-trained Massalani and the horse Frankie Dettori will fly back from Kentucky to ride, Naheef.

The 1000 Guineas, a race for the fillies, will be run on Sunday with short-priced favourite Queens Logic likely to take a lot of beating. She is another who was mentioned in this column when winning her prep race comfortably at Newbury, and that would have put her spot-on for this contest. By Grand Lodge her regular rider Steve Drowne has always thought the mile will suit her, and she certainly ran as if it would when defeating Rountree by 1 and three-quarter lengths. Her main opposition for me looks likely to come from the O'Brien stable once again, in the shape of Quarter Moon. She won a Group 1 at the Curragh last September and the conditions should suit her here, although I think she is likely to want further in time and is entered in the Vodafone Oaks at Epsom. Other Irish entries Lahinch and Dress To Thrill look good, and long time joint favourite for the race Gossamer must go well too.

This Wednesday see's a wonderful day of racing action at Ascot, with the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes taking top billing, where Solo Mio, Double Honour and the ever popular Persian Punch can fight out the finish if they all take their chance. There are two Listed races on the card as well as the seven furlong Victoria Cup.

Meanwhile, as reported last week, Mick Kinane was due at Portman Square to here if his appeal against a ban imposed by the Newmarket stewards, one which threatened to rule him out of the Kentucky Derby, had been successful. Unfortunately for the Ballydoyle number one it wasn't, and thus top colt Johannesburg is still without a jockey in the big race on Saturday.

As you may have already heard, talks have stalled in the deal for picture rights between the racecourses and the bookmakers. Therefore, as of this Wednesday May 1, no pictures or sound will be transmitted into betting shops with the exception of races being shown on terrestrial television, and overseas racing. If things don't improve soon, you'll be watching races between Gary Neville and David Beckham in the bookies for entertainment.

And finally for this week, it has emerged that top American jockey Gary Stevens will once again grace our shores, when he rides at Royal Ascot in June. He will be here primarily to partner American sprinter Morluc in the Golden Jubilee Stakes, but will be hoping to book some more top rides using some of his old acquaintances, possibly Michael Stoute.
