O`Brien relies on Toroca

Aidan O`Brien narrowed down his options for Sunday`s Sagitta 1000 Guineas when leaving only Toroca in the race at today`s declaration stage.

His Nureyev filly, who finished second to Regal Rose in last year`s Cheveley Park Stakes, is the only one of the Ballydoyle trainer`s quartet to line up among the 15 runners for the second Classic of the season at Newmarket.

Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor has also taken Tempting Fate out of the contest, leaving just Muwakleh, who will be ridden by Frankie Dettori, in the contest.

Sir Michael Stoute will be double-handed in the contest, after both Karasta and Enthused pleased in their final workouts yesterday morning.

Another trainer doubly-represented is John Gosden, who runs Crystal Music and Santolina.

Dora Carrington represents Peter Harris who said today that he is hoping for a big run from the Cherry Hinton Stakes winner.

'She`s as well as I can get her and I think the ground will suit her,' he said.

'I took her to Newmarket for a gallop under John Reid and she seemed to thoroughly enjoy herself.

'John is looking forward to the ride and I think she`ll be able to do herself justice on Sunday, she`s giving me all the right signs.'
