Very impressive 2yo debut winner last night at headquarters for John Gosden.

By Invincible Spirit ex a French Guineas winner.

A homebred carrying the Khalid Abdullah colours.

Kingman: the 2,000 Guineas hope is reigning supreme in Classic betting

Kingman all the rage 
for 2,000 Guineas

KINGMAN's status as new favourite for the Qipco 2,000 Guineas solidified considerably on Sunday with one-way betting traffic sending Flat racing's latest pin-up into an increasingly dominant position at the head of the market.

Following a stunning reappearance success in Newbury's Greenham Stakes on Saturday, the John Gosden-trained Kingman was briefly available to back at 3-1 for the Guineas before ending Saturday as a best-priced 7-4 market leader.

RELATED LINKS

Sustained support again on Sunday left Kingman as short as 11-10 with one firm and generally no bigger than 11-8, whileAustralia, who had been 5-2 on Saturday morning and 3-1 that evening, is now out to 4-1.

Speaking at the Curragh on Sunday, Australia's trainer Aidan O'Brien confirmed the colt was still heading to Newmarket.

"All is good with Australia and the Guineas remains the plan. We're working towards running him there," he said.

Asked for his reaction to Kingman's performance at Newbury, O'Brien said: "You would have to be impressed by the way Kingman won yesterday. Absolutely you would."

In destroying the Greenham field with a searing burst of acceleration Kingman earned a Racing Post Rating of 123, one that has been bettered in a Classic trial only once since the turn of the century. The horse to do that was the mighty Frankel, who could still be supported at 4-6 following his Newbury Group 3 triumph in 2011.

Confirming that market activity now centres around one horse, Coral spokesman David Stevens – whose firm have Kingman at 11-8 and Australia at 4-1 – said: “There is no question Kingman's price is purely down to his performance at Newbury and the money that has come for him since his incredibly impressive win.

“Australia was well backed over the winter but he has only won a Group 3, the form of which might not be strong. There is an awful lot of hype connected to him and it has not yet been backed up by racecourse evidence, although in time it might be. As things stand we are happy to keep laying him.

“Kingman deserves to be the short-priced favourite and I can only see him getting shorter and Australia getting bigger.”

Guineas betting is likely to be reshaped further this week with last season's champion juvenile Toormore – a best-priced 8-1 for the Classic – being readied to return in Thursday's Novae Bloodstock Insurance Craven Stakes.

O'Brien to fire both barrels at Kingman

29 APR 2014 | RACINGPOST.COM 
Australia and War Command will present a formidable barrier to red-hot favourite Kingman in the Qipco 2,000 Guineas on Saturday after record-chasing trainer Aidan 'Brien announced both would take part.

It had been thought that one or the other of the Ballydoyle duo would run in the Newmarket Classic.

“We are happy with both Australia and War Command and it looks like both will run on Saturday,” said O'Brien who, with six Guineas wins so far, could equal the record of seven held by John Scott (1842-1862).

Australia is William Hill's 3-1 second favourite for the Guineas behind Kingman at evens and with War Command a 12-1 chance.

Godolphin will rely on Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Outstrip after Be Ready and True Story were absent from a list of 17 five-day declarations.

Richard Hannon has three options led by unbeaten Craven Stakes winner Toormore and made up by Night Of Thunder, second to Kingman in the Greenham Stakes, and Free Handicap winner Shifting Power, who also has a 100 per cent record.

France could be represented by Bookrunner (Mikel Delzangles) and Charm Spirit (Freddy Head), and Spain by Noozhoh Canarias (Enrique Leon).

Miss France (Andre Fabre) and Vorda (Philippe Sogorb) figure among 26 fillies left in the Qipco 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket on Sunday.

Half of those are trained in Newmarket including ante-post favourite Rizeena and Euro Charline, the Marco Botti-trained contender who was supplemented on Monday by owners Team Valor.

Aidan O'Brien also plans a double assault on the 1,000 Guineas. He said on Monday: "At the moment we plan to run both Tapestry and Bracelet."

Tapestry suffered the only reverse of her career when third (subsequently promoted to second) to Rizeena at the Curragh last September, while Bracelet was a convincing winner of the Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial.

Irish Derby winner Trading Leather could make his debut for Godolphin in the Group 2 Qatar Jockey Club Stakes on Saturday for which 12 were declared on Monday.

GOSDEN TAKING MEASURED APPROACH
02 May 2014

John Gosden is keen to keep a lid on the huge expectation surrounding Kingman as the exciting colt prepares to put his unbeaten record and huge reputation on the line in the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday.

The son of Invincible Spirit created a massive impression when winning a Newmarket maiden and Sandown's Solario Stakes last summer, but missed the back-end of the campaign after having to have a chip in a joint surgically removed.

Any fears that setback would hamper Kingman's early three-year-old career were blown out of the water as the youngster produced a scintillating display in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury last month, catapulting him to Guineas favouritism.

As he carries the same colours of Khalid Abdullah, the leading owner's latest Classic hope is inevitably being compared to the incredible Frankel, whose Greenham romp three years ago was the precursor to one of the most jaw-dropping Guineas performances of all time.

Gosden, who has never won the 2000 Guineas, is trying not to get overly excited and said: "If you like a horse going into any race there's a weight of expectation. You mostly try to keep it to yourself for fear of disappointment.

"We have been very up front about his injury - you have to be. When you start making horses favourite for the Guineas after a maiden win, you have no choice but to be open.

"He's done nothing wrong, from his maiden win at Newmarket; he wasn't overly impressive in the Solario Stakes, when he was inclined to look around, and he did well the other day (at Newbury).

"He's been in good form since the Greenham. I have been pleased with him between his races. He's a very genuine, honest horse who gives you everything he's got. So there should be some improvement. He just wants good ground."

Kingman will be tackling a mile for the first time this weekend, but Gosden is confident the trip will not be an issue.

He said: "You cannot realistically stage a strongly run Guineas at home so we will only find out when he races. But he gives us every indication that he will stay.

"His draw in stall one is not a help. I would have preferred to be drawn in the middle or higher. Raven's Pass (who finished fourth in 2008) was also badly drawn and never got cover, so we will just have to see how it pans out. As long as we get reasonable ground, we will be perfectly happy."

Talking about his record in the race, with Anshan's third-place finish in 1990 the best he has managed to date, Gosden said: "It's an important race but you have to have the right type of horse, which I haven't in the past."

When jockey James Doyle was appointed as the new retained rider for Abdullah last summer, his first task was to guide Kingman to victory in the Solario at Sandown. Now, preparing for the biggest ride of his life aboard the same horse, Doyle could hardly be in better form, having ridden a remarkable 12 winners since Sandown's meeting last Friday.

"I have no concerns about the trip at all. He was just starting to get going when he hit the line in the Greenham and it took me all the way round to the mile and a half start until I had him back to a steady canter," the jockey told Betfred TV.

"He settled great, he'd matured mentally and physically from two to three, he relaxes so well in his races that the trip shouldn't pose a problem. He's a short-priced favourite and on what he has done so far he justifies that.

"It's not a one-horse race. There are some good horses like Toormore, who won his trial and while he wasn't that impressive, arguably he never has been, and there's Australia, who is going straight there. It's certainly not a one-horse race."

He bounced back with a brilliant victory in Ireland. It was a less than stellar field but he treated them with the contempt they deserved.

KINGMAN (GB), c, 3, Invincible Spirit (Ire)--Zenda (GB), by Zamindar.
O-Khalid Abdullah. B-Juddmonte Farms Ltd (GB). T-John Gosden. J-James Doyle. Lifetime Record: 5-4-1-0, €368,360.
   Sent off a generous 4-5 with concerns about the rain-softened ground blighting the build-up to this Classic, TDN Rising Star Kingman (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) made light work of conditions to register a straightforward five-length success and provide Juddmonte’s new retained rider James Doyle with a first Classic success. Settled in mid-division initially, the G1 2000 Guineas runner-up traveled easily into contention approaching the final quarter mile as the long-time leader Shifting Power (GB) (Compton Place {GB}) turned up the heat. Subduing that rival with the minimum of fuss at the furlong pole, he drew away to outclass the runner-up who in turn pulled two lengths clear of Mustajeeb (GB) (Nayef) in third with the remainder strung out. “Prince Khalid said we must make this horse a Classic winner,” Racing Manager Teddy Grimthorpe said. “That’s the most important thing and that’s what we’re all about at Juddmonte.” Trainer John Gosden added, “It’s heavy ground out there, but the track is in pristine condition and he’s a really talented horse. This mile takes some getting in these conditions and he rode him beautifully. He’s a miler and we can go to the G1 St James’s Palace S. and take on Richard Hannon’s horse again.”

Night of thunder - kieren fallon wins

Night Of Thunder (centre) and Kingman (near) renew rivalry on Tuesday    

 PICTU Mark Cranham (racingpost.com/photos)

Fireworks expected in St James's Palace rematch

LAST year Dawn Approach and Toronado served up a St James's Palace Stakes to savour and expectations are high that Night Of Thunder and Kingman, first and second in the 2,000 Guineas, can dish out a repeat in one of the most eagerly anticipated match ups of Royal Ascot week.

Night Of Thunder, despite forfeiting ground by hanging left, attacked late and fast to land the Guineas but withKingmangaining Classic compensation in the Irish 2,000 Guineas in stylish fashion, punters are siding with him gaining revenge.

BetVictor are biggest at 11-10 about Kingman, with the majority of bookmakers going just evens, while Night Of Thunder is a general 9-4 chance, although Paddy Power go 5-2.

"We've been over the way the Guineas panned out a thousand times now and it's all history," said Kingman's trainer John Gosden on Monday.

"Kingman has been in good form since the Curragh and we are happy with him. They've won a Guineas each and we'll see here which of them is best."

With War Command next in the market at a general 7-1, bookmakers are struggling to see past the front two in the betting but Gosden suggested that would be foolish.

He added: "Remember all those years ago when the 2,000 Guineas was supposed to be a match between My Swallow and Mill Reef and a certain Brigadier Gerard came along? Watch out for the spoiler."

Richard Hannon, trainer of Night Of Thunder, says there was no fluke about the Newmarket result and on Monday was relishing the rematch.

Hannon added: "The Guineas is the best race run so far, and it might just be the best race run all year. I don't see any significant reason for the Newmarket form to be reversed, as Night Of Thunder came from behind the favourite to beat him.

"I think the round mile will really suit him as he has a great turn of foot, which he proved at Newmarket. It should be a fascinating re-match, and we are all looking forward to it."

The ground on the round course remained good to soft, good in places on Monday although clerk of the course Chris Stickels anticipates it may well dry to good, the same description as the straight course, by the start of the meeting.

The peak temperature on the opening day is expected to be a balmy 21C and Stickels said: "It is going to be a dry day and there is no threat of rain, not in my forecast anyway."

The meeting blasts off with the return of Toronado, odds on to avenge last year's narrow defeat in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes.

The other main event on a quality card is the Group 1 King's Stand Stakes, for which Hot Streak heads the market from last year's first-and-second, Sole Power and Shea Shea.

I thought Night Of Thunder was not given the credit he was due for winning the Guineas, Kingman just proved it was all wrong.

Kingman is the superstar and he proved it today.

That was a turn of foot, the turn of foot of a champion.

I find it very hard to label these sorts of animals as "superstars" but he certainly does look to be the dominant 3yo this year. Time will tell :beer:

According to Racing Post he ran 1:39.06 or 0.76 faster than standard.

There was a new straight course record there last night when Integral ran a blistering 1.37.09 for the straight mile.

Haradasun won his Queen Anne in 1.38.98 on a good to firm surface. On the same day Henrythenavigator ran a course record ( round course ) of 1.38.7

1:42 seconds for a mile.  4 horse field   :chin:
Going to need to find a bit to be competive at the Breeders.
Will need to qualify as well as the Sussex is not considered a good enough race for direct entry.
UK 3 year olds have a poor record in the Breeders Cup Mile.
