The_2000_Guineas An_English_Classic

 

The_Race

The 2000 Guineas is the first of the five English classic flat races for three year old thoroughbred horses.

The 2000 guineas was so named so because the prize money for winning the race was 2000 Guineas.

The 2000 Guineas is the first leg of the traditional Triple Crown which is rated as the supreme test for thoroughbred colts which includes the Derby and the St Leger. The last horse to win the Triple Crown was Nijinsky in 1970.

The_2014_Race

A really good renewal of this first classic race of the 2014 season.

Long time fav Austrailia ticks all the boxes here today and will be very hard to beat. Entered and fav for the Derby this horse will be winning a few group 1 races this season I suspect.

After a strong win in the Greenham Stakes Kingman has taken to the head of the market and looks to have an outstanding chance should he stay this trip.

A.P.O'Brien is double handed in the race today with War Command also taking part, a horse who will not have to find too much improvment and will certainly stay this trip.

Richard Hannon runs 3 and none of them are complete no-hopers so a good class race in prospect today.

1 10 211- Australia 3 9-0 A P OŽBrien Joseph O'Brien
Long-time winter favourite for this race this chestnut son of Galileo did little wrong on his three runs last season.
He was a close second first time out but put that run to bed in his second run where over seven furlongs on good to firm ground at the Curragh he put up a very good performance. He surpassed that on his last run of the season where over 1 mile he was a very impressive six lengths winner over an odds-on favourite on good ground.
Very well thought of by his connections and has a very good chance here today.

2 wins from 3 starts up to a distance of 1 mile on ground ranging from good through to good to firm.




2 5 1-4 Bookrunner 3 9-0 M Delzangles Christophe-Patrice Lemaire
French Raider, whose sire was a multiple Group 1 winner in America over 9 and 10 furlongs. Won his maiden in France on the all-weather track over 1 mile 1 furlong very impressively. But when later tried over seven furlongs on good ground in a group 3 he finished tamely at the end of his race.
Breeding suggests he might want a little further and would have to improve today to make the frame.

One win from two starts over 10 furlongs on the all-weather.




3 6 213-1 Charm Spirit 3 9-0 F Head Olivier Peslier


Another French Raider, whose sire was a group one winner over 6 furlongs on good to firm ground, indeed his sire won all his races on good to firm ground. This bay colt comes here with the benefit of a tight win in a group 3, 7 furlongs race on good ground in France.
Could run a bit better today but that form does not look good enough to win this race.

2 wins from 4 starts on good ground over 7 furlongs.


4 12 21-11 Ertijaal 3 9-0 William Haggas Paul Hanagan


A nice bay colt who has won twice on the all-weather this season and therefore comes here fit and well. This son of a multiple group one winner over six furlongs on good to firm ground. After a shaky first run he won a maiden last year in impressive style over six furlongs on good to firm ground. Although he has raced four times he has met nothing of the class of this race today and looks to have plenty to do.

3 wins from 4 starts on ground ranging from standard through to good to firm and up to a distance of seven furlongs.


5 1 11-1 Kingman 3 9-0 John Gosden James Doyle


A very high class bay colt who has been favourite for this race since winning the Greenham stakes on the12th of April. He was very impressive that day and that added to his to very good unbeaten runs last season. Winner of two group 3's so far and looks to have a good career ahead of him. His breeding suggests that this distance could be his maximum as both his sire and dam only won over a distance of six furlongs.

3 wins from 3 starts on ground ranging from good through to good to firm and at a distance of 7 furlongs.


6 4 111- Kingston Hill 3 9-0 Roger Varian Andrea Atzeni


Progressed extremely well last season finishing the season by winning a group one at Doncaster over 1 mile. Seems to have speed and stamina in his sire line as his sire won at distances up to 11 furlongs. He has entries in plenty of the middle-distance races coming up later in the season.
A really good horse who's starting price looks a little generous, presumably as he will not have run on ground this firm yet.

3 wins from 3 starts on going ranging from good to soft through to soft and up to a distance of a mile.


7 7 251-9 Master The World 3 9-0 David Elsworth Liam Kinery


A nice grey colt and half-brother to Kingston Hill. Therefore he is also one who has speed and stamina in his breeding but does not look to have the same class. His reasonable performances so far suggest that he will have little chance of making the frame today unless he has a big rise in his form.

1 win from 4 starts over 1 mile on good ground.


8 3 11-2 Night Of Thunder 3 9-0 Richard Hannon Kieren Fallon


A nice colt who ran a good race behind Kingman in the Greenham stakes but never got to the winner that day. He should improve on that running and his pedigree suggests that the extra furlong today may be more in his favour than with Kingman.
One of three entries from the Richard Hannon yard but is the right sort of horse that you want backing up your first string.
Impressive wins last season suggest there could be plenty of wins on the cards this season. Certainly not without a chance and would not be a surprise winner but would perhaps prefer the ground a little softer.

2 wins from 3 starts on soft ground over six furlongs.


9 8 1112-1 Noozhoh Canarias 3 9-0 E Leon Penate Christophe Soumillon


A Spanish raider whose form may be a little difficult to assess however based on his one run at the end of last season in France over a distance of seven furlongs on soft ground he does not seem by any standard the worst horse in the race.
Unknown here but a horse that looks to have talent and whose breeding suggests that mile may well bring out the best in him.

4 wins from 5 starts on ground ranging from good through to soft and up to a distance of 7 furlongs.


10 13 12131- Outstrip 3 9-0 Charlie Appleby Mickael Barzalona


Godolphin’s only runner in the race this colt is a winner over this distance and on this ground. He has also won at this course. Winner of the breeders’ cup juvenile Turf race a good Group 1 for two-year-old colts in the USA last November shows that this horse has a lot of class.
He has three lengths to make up on his running in last season's Dewhurst with the winner that day and opponent today War Command, and the extra distance and firm ground may be more in his favour. He is certainly one of the more lively outsiders running here today.

3 wins from 5 starts on ground ranging from firm through to good to soft and up to a distance of 1 mile.


11 11 11-1 Shifting Power 3 9-0 Richard Hannon Franlkie Dettori


A nice unbeaten colt with speed on his sire's side and stamina in his damns site. A winner on this course on good to firm at a distance of seven furlongs, his form has been good but not really classy enough to suggest he should win this race.

3 wins from 3 starts on ground ranging from good through to good to firm and up to a distance of 7 furlongs.


12 2 1227-2 The Grey Gatsby 3 9-0 Kevin Ryan Jamie Spencer


This grey colt won his first race a low class maiden at York, but since then although running well as not been impressive.
Looks not have the class to take part in the finish here today.

1 win from 5 starts a 6 furlong race on good to firm ground.


13 14 111-1 Toormore 3 9-0 Richard Hannon Richard Hughes


An impressive be colt whose sire was a winner over this distance even if not up to this class. Toormore has done little wrong in his career so far winning four times from four runs. He comes here today on the back of a good win in the Craven stakes where he was quite impressive in a messy sort of race over 1 mile on good ground. Looks to have plenty in his favour, could well make the frame, and would not be a surprise winner.

4 wins from 4 starts on ground ranging from good through to good to soft and up to a distance of 1 mile.


14 9 11311- War Command 3 9-0 A P OŽBrien Ryan Moore


An impressive colt from the O'Brian yard. Course winner, winning the Dewhurst and also has won on good to firm ground. Although he has not run over this distance yet his breeding suggests he should certainly get this trip. Last season's Coventry stakes winner over six furlongs in good ground at Ascot racecourse. A very nice second string for this stable who could turn the tables on his stable mate today.

4 wins from 5 starts on ground ranging from good to firm through to good to soft and up to a distance of 7 furlongs.
