Bosra Sham is now as short as 5-2 on for the 1000 Guineas after the withdrawal of Blue Duster yesterday.

And with A Votre Sante being switched to the French equivalent opposition to the Henry Cecil trained filly looks thin on the ground.

David Loder, trainer of Blue Duster, said: "The filly has suffered a recurrence of a back problem which troubled her last season. It didn't interfere with her runs last year, but this year it has reared up at the wrong moment."

Loder added the filly would be trained now for the Irish 1000 Guineas .

Ladbrokes bet: 2-5 Bosra Sham (from 4-7), 5-1 Bint Salsabil, 6-1 Bint Shadayid, 16-1 Dance Sequence, 20 bar.

Coral: 4-9 Bosra Sham, 6-1 Bint Salsabil, 7-1 Bint Shadayid, 16-1 Dance Sequence, 25-1 bar.

Meanwhile, Perth is gearing up for its terrific three day April bash starting tomorrow.

Top Southern trainers are well represented with Charlie Brooks pencilling in his brilliant young chaser Suny Bay for the Sun Life of Canada chase on Friday.

The grey could be opposed by Gordon Richards' progressive Ninfa, a good winner at Ayr last week and Jenny Pitman's Lusty Light.

Richard Dunwoody is expected to fly in from Punchestown on Friday for a couple of mounts for Kim Bailey.

Clerk of the course Sam Morshead said: "The ground is soft on the chase course and good to soft on the hurdles track."

There is plenty of post-racing action for punters with the traditional welcoming ceilidh at the Grampian Hotel tomorrow and a quiz-karaoke-disco on Thursday.

Admission to the club stand is pounds 12 but racegoers can save pounds 6 by buying a three day badge for pounds 30.
