Trial failures who later redeemed themselves.
RODRIGO DE TRIANO: The Peter Chapple-Hyam-trained chestnut headed the market for the 1992 2,000 Guineas after winning all five juvenile outings. Only managed fourth when favourite for the Greenham, but bounced back to his best at Newmarket.
ZAFONIC: The Andre Fabre-trained champion juvenile went under by a short head to Kingmambo on his return on heavy ground at Maisons-Laffitte. He left that form well behind on faster ground at Newmarket with a record- breaking Guineas victory.
SLEEPYTIME: One of Kieren Fallon's first high-profile rides for Henry Cecil. Sleepytime, the 1997 ante-post 1,000 Guineas favourite, met with trouble in running when fourth in the Fred Darling, for which she started at 4-7. But the trainer and jockey collected their first Classic together when Sleepytime made no mistake in the Guineas.
