Nell Gwyn Stakes - 16th April, 2014

Richard Fahey's Sandiva propelled on to the scene when finishing a cracking second in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot and the classy filly will look to step on the Classic journey on Wednesday afternoon when she lines up in the Nell Gwyn Stakes, which should provide some vital clues for the 1000 Guineas next month.

Unable to land a blow in the Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp, the daughter of Footstepsinthesand filly will look to show she can sparkle in Group Three company and sets the standard for what should be an informative renewal on the opening day of Newmarket's Craven meeting.

John Gosden has been in sensational form this season and he will unleash Dorothy B, who was last seen finishing fifth of seven in Cheveley Park Stakes at the back end of last season, whilst Charlie Hills's Queen Catrine, who beat Sandiva at Longchamp last time out, will look to frank the form with that rival at Flat HQ.

Charlie Appleby's Fork Melody has only been seen once on a racecourse, but impressed when landing a Newmarket maiden, whilst Majeyda will be the second Godolphin contender and was a Listed winner at Newmarket on her last start and should be respected.

Of the others, Sir Michael Stoute's Along Again was third in the Group Three Princess Margaret Stakes and should be considered, whilst Wind Fire and Pelerin add tremendous depth to what is a thrilling renewal of the Guineas trial on a cracking Wednesday afternoon card.

Nell Gwyn Stakes History

The Nell Gwyn Stakes is a Group Three race run at Newmarket's Craven Meeting over seven furlongs for three-year-old fillies and is regarded as a trial for the 1000 Guineas.

Established in 1961 is one of the star attractions of the early flat season and the race has traditionally attracting some of the leading three-year-old fillies, who have looked to use the race as a springboard to bigger and better things later on in the season.

Clive Brittain's Pebbles was a sensational winner of the 1984 Nell Gwyn before she went on to Newmarket the following month to lift the coveted 1000 Guineas prize before in her four-year-old days notching up yet more Group success in the 1985 Eclipse Stakes, Champion Stakes and Breeders' Cup Turf.

However, her achievements were eclipsed just a year later as Sir Henry Cecil's Oh So Sharp stormed to victory in the 1985 Nell Gwyn and the Warren Place-trained superstar went on to dominate the flat scene.  She progessed immeasurably and recorded the tremendous feat of bagging the Triple Crown.

After winning the 1000 Guineas, she stormed to glory at Epsom in the Oaks before rounding off the season with victory in the St Leger and secure the coveted trilogy which has not been matche since.

More recently, Sir Michael Stoute's Petrushka was a notable winner in 2000, whilst Pam Sly's Speciosa was the last horse to bag victory in this race and also notch up success in the 1000 Guineas and that classy double came in 2006 to highlight that this contest often attracts the leading protagonists for the first ladies' Classic of the season.
