Cecil's Invested earns 1,000 Guineas quote

Henry Cecil had one hit and one near miss at Lingfield yesterday with a pair of fillies that appear to have a bright future. Fully Invested was given a quote of 50-1 for the 1,000 Guineas by Victor Chandler after coasting home in front on her debut. Yorkshire Rose was only second to Paiyda but is also a decent prospect for next year.

Henry Cecil had one hit and one near miss at Lingfield yesterday with a pair of fillies that appear to have a bright future. Fully Invested was given a quote of 50-1 for the 1,000 Guineas by Victor Chandler after coasting home in front on her debut. Yorkshire Rose was only second to Paiyda but is also a decent prospect for next year.

Cecil's assistant, Harry Dunlop, said: "Fully Invested has been a little awkward at home, but behaved herself beautifully here. She could have a bit of a future and this will really please the boss, who is in rehabilitation after back trouble. He should be back racing at the Champion Stakes meeting."

* A full-sister to dual Irish Classic winner Desert King made IR650,000 guineas at yesterday's Orby Sale at Goffs in Kildare. Mrs Chryss O'Reilly, who races extensively in Ireland and France, is the new owner of the daughter of Danehill.

* Brian Meehan's Potaro, 8-1 on the Pari-mutuel, beat his six rivals with ease in the Group Three Prix Eclipse over six furlongs at Saint-Cloud yesterday.
