Jockey Kevin Manning celebrates winning the Qipco 2000 Guineas Stakes on Poetic Flare


Poetic Flare just edged out Master Of The Seas in a thrilling finish to the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Trained by Jim Bolger and ridden by Kevin Manning, Poetic Flare was sent off a 16-1 shot for the first Classic of the season.

Naval Crown set the early gallop – but it was the first two home who finished with real purpose, racing neck and neck inside the final furlong.


However, it was Poetic Flare who just poked his head in front of Charlie Appleby’s Craven winner on the line, with Lucky Vega running on late in the day for third.
