2024 Guineas Festival News, Cards and Tips

The first Classic races of the season are held at Newmarket at the start of May, as the Guineas Festival takes place on the Rowley Mile. The 2000 Guineas headlines the action on the opening Saturday, with the 1000 Guineas taking place on day two.

Covid-19 restrictions meant the 2020 Guineas Festival didn't take place until June. In 2021, this famous meeting returned to its usual spot on the calendar.
