Group Entries made easy

I have referred to Group-entered juveniles on many occasions and detailed below are the major group race entries for two-year-old colts and fillies. Each race has its own reference numbers e.g. (19 for Coventry Stakes Group 3) and a handy way of detailing entries for future and past engagements. It should be noted that group race fixtures have differing declaration stages. In general the first entry stage will be detailed. At certain points within the season I may detail a juvenile with a number of Group entries and this format can be used for easy reference. For example, last year Mick Channon's filly, Danidh Dubai, would have been detailed accordingly: Danidh Dubai: M,30,20,6,5,1,2.
