2000 Guineas Antepost Special: #1 Roaring Lion 13/2
The 2000 Guineas is the first of the Classics and we have found a couple of live darts for our 2000 Guineas Antepost Special.
The first is John Gosden’s Roaring Lion.
Gosden always seems to have his string in fine fettle in this early part of the season, as his record at this meeting attests.
However, he has yet to win the 2000 Guineas.
But we think, in Roaring Lion, he has a live chance.
This son of Kitten’s Joy is bred to improve with age, but has already hit a high level of form as a two-year-old.
He won his first three runs last season, two of which were here at Newmarket.
One of those wins was a Grade 2 and he was a close second in the Grade 1 Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster.
However, he was only beaten a neck that day and the front two were comfortably clear of the rest.
That race is a usually a good pointer to this one and we fancy the form is strong.
2000 Guineas Antepost Special: #2 Wootton 16/1
At a slightly bigger price, we like Wootton.
The second leg of our 2000 Guineas Antepost Special is a French raider who is unbeaten in his career to date.
Wootton is owned by the powerful Godolphin operation and is a three-year-old son of Wootton Bassett.
From a family of tough nuts, Wootton has shown he has his family’s fighting spirit in spades.
Trained by Henri-Alex Pantall, Wootton has run just the three times in his career.
However, he is unbeaten so far.
Two comfortable wins last season at Deauville, the latter in a Listed race, were impressive enough.
But, in addition, Wootton has come out this season and posted a battling win in a Group 3.
That form looks strong and we fancy he will take some passing if lining up here.
However, there is a doubt.
French raiders do not always make the trip over to contest the English classics.
But connections have said that this race is their target and if he does line up, Wootton is no 16/1 shot.
