Elarqam and Cracksman gallop at Newmarket
Last Updated: 16/04/18 1:32pm
Leading Qipco 2000 Guineas contender Elarqam will gallop before racing at Newmarket on Tuesday.
The three-year-old is certainly bred for the Classic as a son of the brilliant Frankel, who won the 2000 Guineas seven years ago, out of trainer Mark Johnston's top-class racemare Attraction, who won five Group Ones, including the 1000 Guineas in 2004.
Elarqam won each of his two starts as a juvenile, including the Group Three Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket in September, and is a best-priced 7-1 for the first Classic of the season on May 5.
He will gallop over a mile under owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum's retained rider Jim Crowley in company with two companions at 12.50pm, just 10 minutes after John Gosden's top-class colt Cracksman struts his stuff in the hands of Frankie Dettori.
