Thunder Moon clear favourite for Guineas glory
Odds cut after National Stakes win at the Curragh
Unbeaten colt Thunder Moon is the clear 7/1 favourite to win next year’s Qipco 2,000 Guineas, after winning Sunday’s National Stakes at the Curragh.
The two-year-old finished strong to claim the Group 1 win over 7f, beating Wembley by just over a length.
Coral’s David Stevens said: “We weren’t overly impressed with Thunder Moon’s National Stakes win, cutting his odds to 14/1 for the 2,000 Guineas immediately following the race, but punters took a differing view, and have forced his odds at all rates down to clear 7/1 favouritism now.”
Ahead of the Qipco 1,000 Guineas, it’s Shale who has been placed as the 10/1 favourite after winning the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh.
