Everything you need to know on day two of the Newmarket open weekend

1 of 1

Day two of the Newmarket open weekend will begin in traditional manner with a cast of stars cantering on Warren Hill from 8am, before 21 stables and a host of other equines sites open their doors to the public an hour later.

The tally of stables to explore was recently boosted after John Berry decided to open his yard on Exeter Road, where visitors can get up close and personal with Brighton specialist and popular grey Roy Rocket.

Along Bury Road and in the centre of town, trainers including Roger Varian, Ed Dunlop, Hugo Palmer, James Fanshawe and Richard Spencer will be open.

It will be no less busy on Hamilton Road, where nine yards will be open. Classy chasing prospect Kalashnikov is sure to be the centre of attention at Amy Murphy's yard.

Further along the same road, leading female jockey Josephine Gordon will be on hand to sign autographs at Phil McEntee's yard through the morning.

Other sites sure to be on plenty of visitors' agendas include the National Stud, Newmarket Equine Hospital, the British Racing School, Palace House and Tattersalls, where John Gosden, David Simcock and bloodstock agent Tom Goff will be giving a talk on conformation at midday.

There will also be walking tours in conjunction with Discover Newmarket from Palace House and bus rides to Sheikh Fahad's Longholes Stud on Cheveley Road.
