Racing Post trophy winner Casamento has been left in but 20/1 shot Dream Ahead has been taken out of the race as expected with trainer David Simcock admitting that conditions at Newmarket on Saturday are likely to be too quick for last year’s joint-top-rated juvenile.
“With Dream Ahead now missing the Guineas as expected, Frankel is all set to go off one of the shortest-priced favourites for the colts’ classic in recent memory,” said totesport spokesman George Primarolo.
Memory and Moonlight Cloud are the 9/2 joint-favourites with totesport for the Qipco 1000 Guineas after 23 fillies were left in at the latest declaration stage.
Richard Fahey has supplemented Barefoot Lady – a 20/1 shot with totesport – after her victory in the Nell Gwyn Stakes but Paul Cole has decided to wait for the French equivalent with Rimth after her impressive win in the Fred Darling at Newbury.
Havant has been nibbled to 5/1 (from 11/2) by totesport whilst Cheveley Park winner Hooray has also been cut to 9/1 (from 10/1).
Looking ahead to the Investec Derby, there has been support for Vadamar and Alain de Royer-Dupre’s colt is now 20/1 (from 25/1) with totesport for the Epsom showpiece.
