Newmarket RacesMost Improved, the subject of a major ante-post gamble for the Qipco 2,000 Guineas, will get the chance to prove his credentials in the Group 3 Novae Bloodstock Insurance Craven Stakes at Newmarket this Thursday.


The Brian Meehan-trained colt was as big as 33-1 for the first Classic of the year, but is now the 7/2 second favourite on the back of glowing reports at home. He will have the assistance of Kieren Fallon, who has already been confirmed for the ride in the Classic.


Also among the declarations are Crius, who won the Group 3 Somerville Tattersall Stakes, with Group 2 winner Trumpet Major (25/1 to win 2000 Guineas) also declared for trainer Richard Hannon. Mighty Ambition, winner of his sole start in a Newbury maiden, represents Frankie Dettori for Mahmood Al Zarooni in the absence of Swedish Sailor, while recent Kempton winner Eastern Sun is declared for John Gosden.
