Ante-Post 2000 Guineas Selection

2000 Guineas Ante-Post Selection



Wembley 6/1

The first classic race of the season is the Group One 2000 Guineas over a mile at Newmarket and Aidan O'Brien has the ammunition to got and win this race and take all the placings.

One of his horses that takes the eye for us at a value price is Wembley, with the son of Galileo getting better with every race last term and should come on leaps and bounds for being a year older.

The three year old was seen more frequently than most of the runners heading into the race and he has been fairly consistent to date in his six runs, winning once and placing in all of his other five starts.

Having got off the mark three starts ago at Roscommon it looks as though soft or heavy ground could be the best surface for this colt.

However, he has been versatile running well on good ground aswell having finished second behind Thunder Moon two starts ago in the Group One National Stakes at The Curragh and last time out gave another career best in the Dewhurst Stakes when a narrow second to stablemate St Mark's Basilica.

He has shown that he handles Newmarket well and will benefit for the extra furlong in the Guineas, we think he is a big each way player with Galileo having a superb record as a sire in the race.
