Natagora was promoted to 5-1 co-favourite from 13-2 with VC Bet for the 1000 Guineas following a smooth performance in the Prix Imprudence at Maisons-Laffitte.

Pascal Bary’s exciting three-year-old was attempting seven furlongs for the first time and the ground was very testing but Christophe Lemaire had to use only hands and heels to nudge his mount clear.

A winner of five of her seven starts at two, she already has a victory at Newmarket to her credit in the Cheveley Park Stakes.

Following her cosy victory, VC Bet were impressed enough to promote her to joint-favouritism with James Fanshawe’s Spacious and John Dunlop’s Muthabara.
