Elarqam strides into second-favourite for 2,000 Guineas

| 03.05.2018

He’s received plenty of backing ahead of the race

Elarqam is now the clear second-favourite for Saturday’s 2000 Guineas after a flurry of bets with Coral.

Mark Johnston’s colt is now 4/1 (was 11/2) after being heavily backed by punters.

Gustav Klimt (2/1) currently leads the betting, with his Aidan O’Brien-trained stablemate Saxon Warrior now 11/2 (was 5/1).

“As an unbeaten son of the Guineas winners Frankel and Attraction, it’s easy to see why Elarqam has been the best-backed contender for Saturday’s race in the last 48 hours, and only Gustav Klimt is now ahead of the colt in the betting,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
