The Newmarket Cambridge Meeting gets started on September 24th, with Day 1 headlined by the Group 3 Tattersalls Stakes. Just like Royal Ascot and other recent festivals, there will be no spectators on course, but there is still plenty of ways to get involved.
There are eight races on the first day of the Newmarket Cambridgeshire Meeting, with four of those races being broadcast on ITV Racing. It looks like it could be a great day for the blue colours of Godolphin who have several strong chances lined up.
1.15 – Rossdales EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes (4) – 1m (RTV)
1.50 – Bentley Motors Nursery Handicap (2) – 1m (ITV4)
2.25 – British Stallion Studs EBF Premier Fillies’ Handicap (2) – 6f (ITV4)
3.00 – Tattersalls Stakes (Group 3) – 7f (ITV4)

It could be a great day for Godolphin and Last Sunset sets the standard in the first ITV race of the day with Frankie Dettori booked for the ride.
Andrew Balding targets this race every year and with two wins from the last four in the contest, recent scorer Quickstep Lady can land the double off a low weight.
Godolphin’s La Barrosa created a hugely impressive impact visually when scoring on debut and it will be a surprise if he is not a group-class performer.
Last year’s winner Withhold has to be respected but he will do well to see off the attentions of the very classy stayer Mildenberger who goes well fresh.
