Leading 2000 Guineas hope Elarqam set for Newmarket gallop

Mon 16 Apr 2018
The Cambridgeshire Meeting - Day One - Newmarket Racecourse Elarqam is ageneral 7-1 for the 2000 Guineas (PA)

Leading Qipco 2000 Guineas contender Elarqam will gallop before racing at Newmarket on Tuesday.

The three-year-old is certainly bred for the Classic as a son of the brilliant Frankel, who won the 2000 Guineas seven years ago, out of trainer Mark Johnston's top-class racemare Attraction, who won five Group Ones, including the 1000 Guineas in 2004.

Elarqam won each of his two starts as a juvenile, including the Group Three Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket in September, and is a best-priced 7-1 for the first Classic of the season on May 5.

He will gallop over a mile under owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum's retained rider Jim Crowley in company with two companions at 12.50pm, just 10 minutes after John Gosden's top-class colt Cracksman struts his stuff in the hands of Frankie Dettori.
