Newmarket Racecourse has staged its first-ever guinea pig race as it prepares for its showpiece Qipco Guineas Festival this weekend.

In a tongue-in-cheek video released by The Jockey Club, Newmarket's Rowley Mile course staged the 'Guineas Two Metres', which was won by 9-4 favourite Too Darn Soft.

The video features ITV racing commentator Richard Hoiles and presenter Ed Chamberlin, who ends the film by inviting viewers to watch the "real thing" this weekend.
