High Walden and Seazun are among the leading hopes for the Sagitta 1000 Guineas to miss tomorrow's Group Three Dubai Duty Free Stakes.

The going at Newbury was officially turned to soft yesterday after persistent rain, sleet and slow and there is a chance that conditions could deteriorate further in the run-up to the race.

Nine fillies have been declared for the event formerly known as the Fred Darling Stakes, the first major trial this year for the Newmarket fillies' Classic.

Crimplene is sure to be prominent in the betting, after Clive Brittain's charge finished sixth against the colts in the UAE Derby at Nad Al Sheba three weeks ago.

William Hill managing director John Brown's filly Total Love, trained by Ed Dunlop, also runs while Dunlop's father John is responsible for Iftiraas and Yazmin.

High Walden's trainer Henry Cecil saddles his first runners of the season on the supporting card when Poetic lines up in the Bridget Maiden Fillies' Stakes and Andromedes and Total Care in the Peter Smith Maiden Stakes.

His filly is now set to line up in the Shadwell Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket next Tuesday.

Khaled Abdulla, the owner of High Walden, will instead be represented by Barry Hills's Out Of Reach, a winner at Newbury on her only start last year.

Seazun's defection has left champion jockey Kieren Fallon without a ride in the race.
