The feature race of the afternoon at Newmarket is the Group One 1000 Guineas and we are siding with Discoveries.
Jessica Harrington’s filly Discoveries looks a very interesting type in the 1000 Guineas off the back of her last run.The daughter of Mastercraftsman has been seen for times to date, finishing fourth on debut last term over 7f at Leopardstown behind Juncture who she takes on again here.
She got off the mark next time out at the Curragh, beating Aidan O’Brien’s filly Tuesday by a short head, who has since Franked the form.
Given a run on soft ground she still went on to finish a fair third behind Agartha for Joseph O’Brien but she didn’t handle the ground swell as she does on quicker surfaces.
Rounding off last season off in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh, she reversed the form with Agartha and Sunset Shiraz with the quicker ground bringing the best out of her to go on and win.
The yard seem to have a good one with her progressing with each run and unlike the favourite Tenebrism she is likely to stay to the trip.
