Newmarket’s Cambridgeshire Meeting
Thursday kicks off with a fantastic teaser for the rest of the meeting with a Group Three, two Listed races and a whole host of top draw handicaps.
Friday is when the real fun begins with Middle Park Stakes and Cheveley Park Stakes being run. The Middle Park always attracts the most precocious two-year-olds with many past winners going on to bigger and better things. Johannesburg went on to take the Breeders Cup Juvenile after winning this race and July Cup winner Oasis Dream proved his class when stamping his authority in 2002. The two-year-old fillies will also get to showcase their ability in the Cheveley Park. Will we see another Queens Logic, Airwave or Special Duty?
The older fillies will be unleashed on Cambridgeshire day with the Group One Sun Chariot Stakes going to post on the Rowley Mile. Mark Johnston’s classy filly, Attraction, took this in 2004 after her English and Irish Guineas double. The seasons top ending handicap, the Cambridgeshire, goes to post at three o’clock. This handicap is often used as a stepping stone for Group glory and Barry Hills’, Red Ransom, certainly fits the bill in this year’s renewal.
A host of other conditions events along with competitive handicaps makes this a three day festival of pure racing euphoria.
