2022 Irish 2000 Guineas Ante-Post Tip

It’s fair to say Sunday didn’t go to plan. Acer Alley never managed to land a blow at Longchamp. Matilda Picotte and Treasure Trove took each other on and both faded late in the day. Making Moovies ran a good race, just not good enough to land place money. The spotlight will be on the Curragh this weekend for the 2000 and 1000 Guineas. We are going to have a look at the former race today, check out Dave Stevos’ 2022 Irish 2000 Guineas ante-post tip below.

2022 Irish 2000 Guineas Preview

At the final forfeit stage over 30 horses dropped out of the 2000 Guineas. The field for Saturday’s race was cut from 43 all the way down to 11 on Tuesday. Newmarket runner up Native Trail is a very short price to go one better on Saturday. He is around 2/5 and he won’t have any stablemates to worry about this time. There are no concerns about the suitability of the track as he won here over 7f last season. The son of Dubawi is miles clear on the ratings and he’ll be a tough nut to crack.

Buckaroo was mightily impressive when winning here last time out (8f yld). He was only a head behind Derby hopeful Piz Badile previously at Leopardstown (10f gd) and he also took the scalp of Stone Age in a Galway maiden last July (8.5f gd). This son of Fastnet Rock showed a smart turn of foot here two weeks ago and he is clearly a horse with lots of ability. Enough to beat Native Trail? I don’t know about that but he will have plenty of supporters at 7/2.

Fighter Overpriced

On his last start over a mile on decent ground, Imperial Fighter was only 2L behind Newmarket Guineas winner Coroebus. Next time, on soft, he was only 2.5L behind Guineas third Luxembourg. It is rock solid 2yo form and if he hadn’t been beaten at Newcastle on his return, there is not a chance he would be as big as 50/1 for this.

In that Newcastle race he was denied a clear run repeatedly for around a furlong and David Probert wasn’t exactly hard on him. He kept on very nicely once the gap came and he was closing on the winner all the way to the line. Yes, the winner didn’t frank the form in the 2000 Guineas but in my opinion, Imperial Fighter was only out for a sharpener at Newcastle. I’d expect a massive chunk of improvement back on grass with that run under his belt.

This son of The Gurkha isn’t as well-bred as some of these. He is still related to some nice sorts and while his dam was of little account, her half-sister won a G3 in Canada. His sire hasn’t really taken off yet but it is still early days and he has produced a couple of Group winners in Germany. If Imperial Fighter can reproduce the form he showed behind Coroebus or Luxembourg last year, he will outrun his odds of 50/1.
