Godolphin look set to head straight to 1000 Guineas

Lyric of lightGodolphin's two leading fancies for the Qipco 1,000 Guineas, Discourse and Lyric Of Light, are set to head straight to Newmarket on the 6th May without a prep run. Lyric Of Light, who is12/1 with StanJames.com for the Classic, won all three of her starts for trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni last year, progressing from winning a maiden over 7f to taking the Group 1 Shadwell Fillies' Mile at Newmarket.

Discourse (13/2 to win 1000 Guineas), also trained by Al Zarooni, remains unbeaten as well after scoring on her debut in a Newmarket maiden and then winning the Group 3 Sweet Solera Stakes impressively at the same course last August.

Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford said: "I imagine both Lyric Of Light and Discourse will go straight to the Guineas. We'll know better when they get into faster work a bit more, but now is too early to make definite decisions. They're both doing well and in good form.”

He added "Lyric Of Light had plenty of experience last year, was a course and distance winner at Newmarket and did not need to race or train out here, so she stayed in England. Discourse had a niggly problem after her second race, which kept her off the track and because of that we did not move her either."
