Qatar Racing hit the headlines with their 2.5 million guineas purchase of Hydrogen at the Tattersalls yearling sales, but they could have more immediate Classic aspirations in mind after Just The Judge won the Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket.
StanJames.com cut the filly for next year's 1000 Guineas with the firm's Rory Jiwani saying, "She beat a decent field to take the Group 2 prize and looks like a very nice filly for the Charlie Hills yard. Michael Hills did not have to ask the daughter of Lawman too many questions and she would have a chance in the 1000 Guineas especially as we haven't seen a truly outstanding two-year-old filly on the track.
"We initially cut her from 25/1 to 20/1 for Newmarket next year but that was soon snapped up and she's now 16/1 for the one-mile Classic."
Dawn Approach proved his Classic credentials with a comfortable success in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, and StanJames.com make Jim Bolger's colt their 5/2 favourite for next year's 2000 Guineas.
Jiwani said, "We laid plenty of bets on Dawn Approach in the last 24 hours for the 2000 Guineas and he was far too good for his rivals including impressive Doncaster winner Ashdan. We've cut him from 4/1 to 5/2 for next year's 2000 Guineas and 12/1 to 5/1 for the Epsom Derby.
