1000 Guineas odds: Burke eyes first Classic success with Fallen Angel

Trainer Karl Burke has yet to win any of the British Classics but that could be about to change as Fallen Angel leads the market for Sunday’s 1000 Guineas.

Flat racing fans will be in their element this weekend with two of the biggest races of the season - the 1000 and 2000 Guineas - taking place at Newmarket.

Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel has won two on the spin and three of her four outings for connections so far. Her latest win came in the Group 1 Moyglare Stakes at the Curragh, where the grey beat market rival Ylang Ylang by nearly 14 lengths.

Fallen Angel, who Burke claims is one of the best he has trained, has suffered just one defeat, that coming on soft ground, so any rain could give connections a thing or two to worry about.

Burke also saddles Darnation on Sunday, who has already beaten Pretty Crystal and See The Fire, who are both shorter in the market. Any rain would do her chances no harm, and she could run a big race for the team.

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang is the only representative of Aidan O'Brien's yard, and he will hope to get the best out of the daughter of Frankel. 

After that disappointing display at the Curragh, the three-year-old has bounced back by finishing third at Newmarket and then winning at HQ.

That latest triumph came on soft ground, so any rain will be appreciated by connections.

Dance Sequence

Charlie Appleby's runner was in action last month but could only finish second at Newmarket in the Group 3 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes.

Before that, she had won twice over 7f, but the step up to one mile could be the perfect solution. In her defeat at Newmarket, she seemed to find her best form towards the end of the race, so that could give Appleby and his team plenty of confidence.


Christoper Head's stable star Ramatuelle has never finished outside the top two, and she could give those at the front of the market a battle.

Ramatuelle won Group 2 and Group 3 races last season before she was beaten by a short neck by Vandeek in the Group 1 Sumbe Prix Morny at Deauville in August.

While she lost as an odds-on shot in a Group 3 on her reappearance in April, she should be fit and ready to go this weekend.

See The Fire 

Andre Balding's charge has not raced since October, but she has yet to finish outside the top three so far.

The Daughter of Sea The Stars finished second to Darnation in the Group 2 May Hill Stakes in September before finishing third in the Group 1 bet365 Fillies' Mile a month later.

She's a promising type who has plenty of potential and connections must be confident she can run a big race after a long break.

Pretty Crystal 

Pretty Crystal, from Richard Fahey’s stable, has to be respected after winning the Nell Gwyn, and she was a touch unlucky last year to finish outside the top three in races at Ayr and Goodwood.

The step up in trip should bring the best out of her, as she tries to build on her recent win at the track in April, where she finished ahead of Dance Sequence.
