Camelot tops Guineas hopefuls

by Michelle Fortune , 25 April 2012

There are 26 horses still engaged in the Qipco 2000 Guineas following the latest forfeit stage.


Aidan O'Brien's Camelot remains at the head of the betting for the first British Classic of the season on Saturday week, although the Racing Post Trophy winner is not a definite runner at this stage.

He is one of three entries from Ballydoyle with National Stakes winner Power and Furner's Green, winner of the 2000 Guineas Trial.

Sea The Stars landed the 2000 Guineas in 2009 and his half brother Born To Sea will be looking to make it a double for trainer John Oxx, while Jim Bolger could run Dewhurst Stakes winner Parish Hall and Light Heavy.

Richard Hannon is well represented with five entries, headed by Craven Stakes winner Trumpet Major, while Bronterre is another possible for the trainer.

Top Offer missed his intended run in Greenham stakes but he is on course to take his chance for Roger Charlton, while Caspar Netscher is an interesting possible for Alan McCrabbe.

Mandaean could represent Godolphin with a strong French challenge headed by French Fifteen, Abtaal and Hermival all entered.

Meanwhile, O'Brien's Maybe is one of 24 fillies entered in the Qipco 1000 Guineas.

The Moyglare Stud Stakes winner could be joined by Leopardstown 1000 Guineas Trial winner Homecoming Queen, Up and Wonderful, while David Wachman's Fire Lilt and Lightening Pearl could make the trip to headquarters along with the Kevin Prendergast-trained La Collina.

Other interesting contenders include Lyric Of Light and Mashoora.
