The Dreweatts 1759 Handicap Stakes will take place at 4.55pm and, in addition to the cup presented to the winner, there will also be an award for the Best Turned Out Horse and the Winning Lad or Lass.

The race is in part a means of promoting the sale of the Norman R Bobins Collection of British Sporting Prints, which will be offered in 175 lots at auction at Dreweatts' Donnington Priory saleroom the following Wednesday, April 20.

This private American collection is dominated by equestrian prints, depicting British racing and steeplechasing events of the 18th and 19th century.

Highlights will be on view in the pavilions overlooking the paddock at Newbury on April 15 and 16.
