2000 Guineas 2014 - Kingman and Australia star in Classic betting at Newmarket
John Gosden's Kingman propelled to the head of the 2014 2000 Guineas Betting with a mightily-impressive victory in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury and the unbeaten raider will now head to Newmarket on May 3 aiming to land the coveted Classic and he is a red-hot favourite to land the Group One prize.
There will be a whole host of classy performers doing battle in the one-mile showpiece and Aidan O'Brien's Australia was subject to some significant bets throughout the winter months and he will be aiming to build on some smart juvenile form and he will spearhead what will be a strong Ballydoyle battalion.
National Stakes winner Toormore continued his unblemished record in the Craven Stakes, which is one of the leading trials for the Guineas and he will spearhead a strong Richard Hannon team which will also consist of Night Of Thunder, who warrants respect.
Racing Post Trophy winner Kingston Hill will aim to sparkle in top class company again and will make his comeback run in the event, whilst the likes of Noozhoh Canarias and Outstrip are just another brace of top class raiders ready to do battle at Flat HQ.
