Tips from the trading floor: Skardu could be the star in the 2000 Guineas

The eyes of the racing world will be fixed on Newmarket today as the flat racing classic season gets underway with a bang!


The flat classic season gets under starter’s orders today, which has the flat aficionados in Power Tower and around the world drooling with excitement.

Millions will be added to the value of the winner of the 2000 Guineas for one lucky owner and it all kicks off at 15:35 at Newmarket.

The horse that we believe this honour will be bestowed upon is Skardu for trainer William Haggas.

He’s available at a nice each-way price and has ran so fast to date that he has blown up several clocks! We reckon he can do the same later today and land the big one.

Elsewhere on the card, we like the Russian composer turned racehorse Sergei Prokofiev, who will be finely tuned by Aidan O’Brien in the 14:20. From composers to crowns and we fancy Coronet to get the better of Defoe at 14:55.

Finally, two other horses of interest to follow for the day are Power Of Darkness in the 13:50 at Newmarket and Whitefountainfairy in the 14:40 at Goodwood. has all the latest racing odds
