Godolphin enjoyed a remarkable year in 1999 when the Dubai operation won an unprecedented 18 Group One races worldwide.

Tomorrow Sheikh Mohammed's team can record another victory at the highest level with Fath in the Sagitta 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

This powerfully-built colt made his debut at York in August and created a very favourable impression.

He travelled strongly before quickening in good style to beat subsequent impressive scorer Tough Speed by two lengths in a fast time.

Fath improved on his next start in the Middle Park Stakes.

He looked likely to win the Group One contest for most of the way but his lack of experience told inside the final furlong and he went down by a neck to Primo Valentino.

The son of Danzig was trained for those two runs by Marcus Tregoning but joined Godolphin during the winter and showed his well being by winning his trial over a mile at Nad al Sheba last month for Saeed bin Suroor.

Fath, who has the scope and build to make a high-class performer, is made the nap selection to follow up the success of Godolphin's Island Sands in last season's 2000 Guineas.

Each-way value for the first Classic could lie with French Fellow and Mastermind.

The Tim Easterby-trained French Fellow failed by three-quarters of a length to give 3lb to Race Leader in the Thirsk Classic Trial last time.

French Fellow looked in need of the run that day and improvement can be expected tomorrow. Priced at around 20-1 this progressive colt has fine prospects of being placed.

Mastermind, a 33-1 chance, has not been out since winning convincingly on the July Course last year, beating leading Kentucky Derby hope The Deputy and Greenham Stakes third Winning Venture.

Paul Cole's charge has reportedly been working well in the build-up to tomorrow's race and this strongly-built individual looks worth an interest at rewarding odds.

Cadeaux Cher has dropped down the ratings following a disappointing campaign in 1999 and now looks weighted to win the Ladbrokes Handicap.

The Barry Hills-trained six-year-old ran a race full of encouragement on his reappearance in a 22-runner handicap at Doncaster in March.

Held up in the rear by regular partner Ray Cochrane, Cadeaux Cher finished well but the winner, Manorbier had flown, and he went down by four lengths.

Now he has shown signs of a return to form Cadeaux Cher is worth considering in tomorrow's competitive heat.

The Victor Chandler Palace House Stakes over six furlongs can fall to Kier Park.

Michael Jarvis' three-year-old rounded off last term with a win in the Cornwallis Stakes at Ascot and normal improvement could see this well-made colt take high rank among this season's sprinters.

Whatever the fate of French Fellow in the 2000 Guineas, Easterby can still enjoy a lucrative day with Minivet in the £40,000 Crowther Homes Swinton Handicap Hurdle at Haydock Park.

Minivet recorded five victories as a novice and only finished out of the first two once in eight starts.

Clearly a useful sort Minivet looks to have been given every chance by the handicapper of adding to his already impressive tally with victory in tomorrow's valuable contest.
