Day one of the Craven meeting: all the essential early news
The Flat season started with a bang at Doncaster on April 1 when Ryan Moore threatened to make fools of bookmakers and bring them to their knees when chasing a four-timer, but it's been a case of tame flames, rather than fireworks since.
However, that promises to change this week as Newmarket and Newbury host Classic trials, kicking off today at HQ with day one of the Craven meeting.
The highlight is the bet365 Feilden Stakes, a Listed heat Golden Horn landed before enjoying his Derby- and Arc-winning campaign two years ago.
Intello was also successful in 2013 en route to his Prix Du Jockey Club triumph.
The shoulder races also looked packed with potential, while it's day three of Fairyhouse's Easter meeting and just the two runners for Gigginstown House Stud in the €100,000 Glascarn Handicap Hurdle.
