The Sean Woods-trained Little Indian earned a 33-1 quote for the 1998 2,000 Guineas after sweeping aside Tracking and Haami, representatives of the Henry Cecil and John Dunlop stables respectively, in yesterday's Solario Stakes at Sandown.

Haami had been third favourite for the Guineas but has now been removed from the betting after failing to match Little Indian's strong late run up the hill.

"Little Indian will have one more run this season, probably in the Racing Post Trophy," Woods said. "He needs racing and is still learning.

"He was a 12-1 chance today because of the trainer. If Tracking had won today he would be 8-1 for the Classics, but 33-1 is a very fair price."
