Craven Stakes Derby Trial

Serving as a Trial race for both the 2000 Guineas and the Epsom Derby, the Group Three, Craven Stakes, which takes place on the second day of the famous early season Craven Meeting at Newmarket, is the first opportunity of the new season to take a look at some of the potential stars. The meeting effectively kicks off the season in earnest.

It is run over the Rowley Mile and usually gives a strong indication of early season Classic potential, but the race has had more success producing Guineas winners rather than the Derby. Dr Devious however was second in the 1992 Craven but went on to win the Epsom Derby two months later after competing in between in the Kentucky Derby in the USA.
