After the sun king, the deluge. Those privileged to be here for the first day of the meeting will attest that the Knavesmire has rarely, if ever, taken the imprint of a greater thoroughbred than Frankel. Yesterday, however, they experienced an obverse of the sport's glories. Both big races were run in a downpour, while darker clouds still extinguished the dazzling promise of Newfangled.

The theme stated so boldly over its opening bars may yet recur inexorably through the Classic season, but some ears are beginning to pick up a developing counterpoint. Having already won the 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas, horses trained by Aidan O'Brien dominate betting on both Epsom Classics. Yesterday, however, the Ballydoyle trainer brought an odds-on favourite to York for an unceremonious thrashing in the last major trial for the Investec Oaks, and today he will find out where he stands with the two colts closest to Camelot in the Derby market. If either Bonfire or Mandaean remotely approaches the performance of The Fugue, certainly, O'Brien will know that horses trained on British soil do not intend to cede its most precious turf without a fight.
