Aidan O & # 39; Brien will likely have four runners in Guinea Qipco 2000 at Newmarket (3:35 pm) on Saturday, the first British classic of the new season.
The Ballydoyle coach, who will try to win his fourth consecutive victory in Group 1 and the eleventh in total, currently has Arizona, New World Tapestry, Royal Dornoch and Wichita among the major competitions.
Speaking before the first race weekend in Britain since March, Brien said:
"We don't really know where we are until the horses go. The horses were passing, but obviously every time you think you had a target and saw it, the next thing the target moves and you need to change it again, so it's a little bit complicated and horses feel it. ”
Arizona, son of No Nay Never, who got home well at the races last season, is the top contender for Ballydoyle for the Newmarket mile event:
"He has always been the horse in everyone's mind and everyone is happy with him. He is in good shape and everything went well with him. He is a big, slim and scaly horse, which we always think about improving from two to three. We always thought that a mile would be well within reach. I don't know how much more it will get. "
