1000 Guineas Market Lights Up

Lumiere just edged an exciting battle in the Connolly’s Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes and William Hill price the winner as 8-1 co-favourite for next year’s 1000 Guineas. Illuminate was second and is now 10-1 from 16-1 for the 1000 Guineas, with Besharah also trimmed to 14-1 from 16-1.


“We were impressed with the first three home and they all look realistic 1000 Guineas horses,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
