TWO UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas winners, Attraction and Russian Rhythm, could clash at Newmarket in the autumn, it emerged today.
The pair are earmarked to run in the Group One Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes on Saturday, October 2.
They are among 32 great entries for the £200,000 one-mile contest, run as a Group One for the first time in its 38-year history.
Attraction won her first eight races, including this season's Group One UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas and the Group One Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot before losing her undefeated record to Soviet Song at Newmarket's July Meeting.
Russian Rhythm enjoyed a marvellous season in 2003, before going on to further Group One glory in the Vodafone Nassau Stakes at Goodwood.

The Kingmambo filly won her only start this season at Newbury in the Group One Juddmonte Lockinge Stakes.
Russian Rhythm's trainer Sir Michael Stoute holds a particularly strong hand for the Sun Chariot having also entered last month's Vodafone Nassau Stakes scorer Favourable Terms, along with Chic and Red Bloom. Other top fillies from Ireland and Europe are also entered.
Lisa Hancock, managing director at Newmarket, said: “We could not have wished for a stronger entry for the first renewal of the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes as a Group One contest. Virtually all of Europe's best fillies have been entered. It will be fascinating to witness the clash between the
classic and older generations.”
