Newmarket - Racing: Hills ready to test out Allayaali

Charlie Hills is set to step up preparations this week for his tilt at a first British Classic with Allayaali, who is due to have a racecourse gallop up Newmarket's Rowley Mile.

Owned by Shadwell Estate, she is a contender for the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket at the beginning of next month and is 33/1 for the fillies' Classic.

HQ experience

The three-year-old daughter of Dark Angel won two of her four starts as a juvenile and was last seen finishing a narrow second to Fast Attack on the Rowley Mile in the Group 3 Oh So Sharp Stakes.

Hills is taking inspiration from a tried-and-tested route as the same prep was used by Hills's father Barry for Ghanaati.

He landed the 1,000 Guineas in 2009, while the trainer exercised Just The Judge on the Rowley Mile before her Classic second in 2013.

Tried and tested

The 1,000 Guineas on 1st May will be shown on the Sports Live Streaming page and the Lambourn handler is happy to be sticking to the formula ahead of the race.

Hills said: "We'll take her for a bit of work up there on Wednesday. The plan is then to run her in the Guineas. She's done really well over the winter and her coat is coming through nicely at the moment.

"Hopefully it will warm up in the next week as we've had some very cold nights and lots of frosts, but her summer coat is definitely getting there.

"Taking horses up there has worked, and if it's not broken you don't need to fix it. I'm happy to do it again rather than take in a trial race, especially for a filly as it's early enough in the year and you don't want to necessarily be giving them a hard race."
