Mark Johnston's Royal Ascot winner Main Edition heads 11 declarations for Newmarket's Nell Gwyn Stakes

April 14, 2019

MARK JOHNSTON's Main Edition sets the standard as 11 fillies will go to post for the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket.

Johnston's filly already has two Group 3 wins to her name thanks to victories in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Sweet Solera Stakes last year.

On Tuesday she will face a tough field as she looks to throw her hat into the 1000 Guineas ring.

Her rivals include Roger Varian's Mot Juste who impressed when landing the Oh So Sharp Stakes over this course and distance.

She has plenty of potential as does the runner-up that day Angel's Hideaway who also makes her seasonal reappearance.

Ed Walker's Sunday Star is in contention along with Andrew Balding's Look Around.

Charlie Appleby sends the Godolphin pair of Nashirah and Orchid Star into battle.
