O’Brien and Moore to shine at Newmarket
By Andrew Atkinson
AIDEN O’Brien and Ryan Moore could be set for a successful Saturday at Newmarket, underlined in the Quipco 2,000 Guineas with Ten Sovereigns (3.35) – the first British Classic of 2019 – and Sergei Prokofiev (2.20) in the Zouster Palace House Stakes.
Royal Marine, trained by Saeed Bin Suroor and ridden by Christophe Soumillon, is a Leader each way selection in the 2,000 Guineas, the 2018 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere winner trading at 9-1.
John Gosden trained Kick On, ridden by Oisin Murphy, is also tipped each way, having been backed down from 33-1 to 16-1 in the 2,000 Guineas Stakes 1 mile race.
O’Brien trained Ten Sovereigns is trading at 7-2 in the wake of ante post favourite Too Darn Hot’s withdrawal.
Too Darn Hot, trained by John Gosden, that sustained injury last month, was back on the gallops this week and is trading at 5-1 in the 2019 Derby betting.
