POET (Pivotal ex Hyabella) ran a cracking race pulverising the opposition only to be headed by Workplace in the closing stages and so to take 2nd place. The pair left the rest of the field including Group 1 winners Cavalryman and Jan Vermeer 11 lengths and more behind.
IZZI TOP secured her first stakes success with victory in the Listed Sweetenham Stud Fillies' Trial at Newbury following her recent third in a similar grade on 1000 Guineas Day, where she was undone by the firm ground. IZZI TOP is the first stakes winner out of the Group 1 Prix de L'Opera winner Zee Zee Top. She became the our 42nd individual stakes winner and secured our 82nd stakes success
Havane Smoker, second foal out of Ballet Ballon, overcame a similarly high draw to Wooton Bassett, to finish second in the French 2000 Guineas. It was a third Group second for the son of Dubawi and he could either dop back to the Jersey Stakes next or step up to the French Derby
