Racing: CECIL SITS OUT THE CLASSIC.

HENRY Cecil, with 23 successful British Classics to his name, will not have a runner in the Sagitta 1000 Guineas at Newmarket next week.

The Warren Place trainer was not represented in any of the five Classics last year although he did saddle the 2000 Vodafone Oaks winner Love Divine and Vodafone Derby third Beat Hollow in 2000.

Although Protectress and Half Glance were both left in the 1000 Guineas at the latest acceptance stage, neither will take their place in the line-up on Sunday week as Cecil re-schedules his horses racing plans.

Teddy Beckett, racing manager to owner Prince Khaled Abdulla said yesterday: "Protectress will probably go for the Pretty Polly at the same meeting and we have no plans for Half Glance at the moment. She just needs a bit more time."

The same owner's Western Verse, also trained by Cecil, is still in the Sagitta 2000 Guineas but he disappointed on his seasonal reappearance at Newmarket last week in the untidy race that saw Mick Kinane banned for irresponsible riding.
