The German 2,000 Guineas winner is worth backing as an alternative to red-hot favourite Coroebus in Tuesday’s big race
There is an old saw in racing that the 2,000 Guineas is effectively the last of the previous season’s big juvenile events before more slowly-maturing three-year-olds come into their own. It will be put to the test in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday when Coroebus, this year’s Guineas winner, takes on several lightly-raced opponents.
Coroebus was a smooth winner at Newmarket – though perhaps also slightly assisted by his draw – but has yet to race around a bend and faces three interesting new rivals on Tuesday in My Prospero, Maljoom and Mighty Ulysses.
