Favourite Dabyah misses Nell Gwyn to tackle the Fred Darling

Dabyah: the 1,000 Guineas third favourite does not run
1 of 1

Ante-post favourite Dabyah has not been declared for Wednesday's Group 3 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket, with Andre Fabre's Pamplemousse replacing her at the head of the market.

Fabre shook up the Qipco 2,000 Guineas market last week with Al Wukair, who won the Prix Djebel in impressive fashion, and bookmakers reckon the French trainer is most likely to saddle the springer in the market for the fillies' equivalent.

A total of 11 were declared for the Qipco 1,000 Guineas trial, including Aidan O'Brien's Roly Poly (Ryan Moore) and Brave Anna (Seamie Heffernan), William Haggas's Sea Of Grace and Andrew Balding's Poet's Vanity. Dabyah's trainer John Gosden and owner Abdullah Saeed Al Naboodah look instead to Daban.

Explaining the decision to rely on Daban, the owner's racing manager Bruce Raymond said: "Dabyah's great, she's going to run at the weekend. She'll go for the Fred Darling at Newbury.

"We had the two of them in both races and it was just a matter of which one John felt was more suitable. They've both been working very well."

Dabyah was one of 19 entered for the Dubai Duty Free Stakes (Fred Darling), with Lowther winner Queen Kindly, Royal Ascot runner-up Bletchley, Glorious Goodwood second Promising and Glitter Girl – who found just Poet's Vanity too good in the Oh So Sharp Stakes.

Eight have been declared for the other Group 3 at Newmarket on Wednesday, the bet365 Earl of Sefton, including recent Lincoln winner Bravery, Royal Ascot winner Berkshire and Brian Meehan's Cambridgeshire winner Spark Plug.

The sponsors make William Buick's mount Folkswood the 5-2 favourite, with the Charlie Appleby stable's second string Viren's Army, to be ridden by James Doyle, the 9-2 joint second choice with Spark Plug.

Eight go forward for the Listed bet365 European Free Handicap, with Frankel colt Seven Heavens and David Elsworth's Sir Dancelot contesting favouritism at 7-2.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained Whitecliffsofdover comes next at 9-2, with Flying Scotsman winner Rodaini and Richard Hannon's Majeste at 6-1.
