2000 Guineas Tips
Paul Jacobs: “I am going to go hugely left of centre by suggesting that the Roger Varian runner, LEGION OF HONOUR, takes a massive step forward here.
“He was hugely disappointing last time out when second in a Listed race at Newcastle, but they went a stop-start place that day and he will be much better suited to an out and out gallop over this eight furlongs. Any of the forecast showers certainly won’t hinder his chance here and although he needs to find 14lbs plus to trouble the best of these on official figures, I think he is capable of taking a nice step forward and is the each-way play here to do just that.”
Matt Chapman: “I am all over THUNDER MOON for Joseph O’Brien and Declan McDonogh. The Dewhurst third was exceptional in the National Stakes as a juvenile and just found the soft ground blunting his pace in the Newmarket Group 1.”
Frank Hickey: “The set up of the race looks likely to suit THUNDER MOON. Mutasaabeq has been drawn 12 and Naval Crown drawn 11, with Thunder Moon drawn 10, so he should get a lovely tow into the race.”
Paddy Power: “It’s hard to know just how good MUTASAABEQ is after two easy wins but he’s quite possibly top drawer so he has a massive chance at a decent price.”
Jason Weaver: “BATTLEGROUND was always going to be a better three-year-old given his size and scope going forward. I’m fascinated to see what he looks like in the paddock before his first assignment, but I’m sure he’s not going to disappoint.”
Ruby Walsh: “I’ve always been a fan of BATTLEGROUND and Frankie Dettori takes the ride on him. You also have to respect Mutasaabeq but I’m leaning towards Battleground.”
