Dazzle, the favourite for next year's 1,000 Guineas, has a straightforward opportunity to maintain her unbeaten record and pick up a Group One prize in today's Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket.

Clearly the best juvenile filly on this side of the Channel, Dazzle may face her most arduous challenge from the French filly, Pas De Reponse. She represents the Criquette Head stable that was successful in this race with Ma Biche in 1982 and Ravinella in 1987. Both those fillies went on to success in the Guineas.

In television coverage curtailed because of the Labour Parrty Conference, the Tattersalls Houghton Sales Stakes is the only other contest to gain live transmission.
