2000 Guineas 2014 - Unbeaten Kingman heads early Classic betting for Gosden
John Gosden's Kingman propelled to the head of the latest 2014 2000 Guineas betting with an impressive Group Three victory in the Solario Stakes at Sandown Park and the Prince Khalid Abdullah-owned raider shaped like a potential top class performer when easing to victory in that event.
The betting is sure to hot up over the next few months, but Aidan O'Brien is already appearing to have a strong team of three-year-olds for the 2014 campaign and runaway Coventry Stakes winner and impressive Dewhurst Stakes victor War Command could be one of the leading representatives for the Ballydoyle operation, whilst Great White Eagle could be another to venture over for the coveted Classic, with emphatic Group Three winner Australia looking another premier contender for the Classic crown from O'Brien's yard.
Berkshire was another who caught the eye at Royal Ascot and deserves his place in the ante-post markets, whilst Richard Hannon's Toormore and American speedster No Nay Never are just another intriguing brace of potential challengers for the one-mile crown, with Racing Post Trophy winner Kingston Hill another exciting prospect for a race that will take place at Newmarket in the early part of the season.
