With such a good thread going on for the 1000, I wandered if we could get a similar one for the 2000.

Obviously AFB is a short fav but I'm far from convinced he is a good thing. Will he train on? War Command won a dewhurst and then did nothing. Anyone have stats 're War Front Colts at 3?

The only thing I have done is Marcel at 33s. Thought that was a little generous especially with JV franking the form today in France

As I said before, I was at Newmarket for the Dewhurst and backed Emotionless, shame it chipped a bone although I don't think it would have won anyway in retrospect. When Ryan Moore came into the winners enclosure, he had a face like a Cheshire Cat and was shaking his head as if in disbelief, I was stood close to this and the first thing he said when he saw AOB was wow. On the basis of that its a 1-2 shot in my eyes and I'm luckily enough to have it in a juicy treble and I doubled it with 4 winners at the Cheltenham Festival, I've never seen a jockey look so surprised (apart from Geraghty after his hearing)
Report Figgis April 19, 2016 3:51 PM BST
I backed AFB in the Dewhurst as I thought he only had Emotionless to beat and I wasn't sure quite how good that one was. To be honest I might have left the race alone only for Tabor's comments, I don't make bets just on someone else's say so but if I have a view on the form and respected connections are bullish about the horse's current well being (something I can't always be sure about) then it can make the difference. In Gp1 terms I thought the rest of the field were crap, I still do, so while it was a good performance, one that could even be good enough to win a mediocre Guineas, I didn't rate it a wow performance. Even if he wins the Guineas it'll be interesting to see if he's the future superstar that's being claimed. If he does prove to be then it's hats off to those who predicted it at this stage, as it's something I haven't seen yet.

Just a couple of points that might put the cat amongst the pigeons concerning trends. Going back to a thread with longevity from The_LUFCwaffe on ‘Typical 2000 Guineas Winner - Early or Late Foal?’ - Air Force Blue had a very late foaling date – 2nd May. Also American bred colts have a poor record in the 2000 Guineas.

Report Howellsy April 19, 2016 7:26 PM BST
I have always tended to want to oppose strong favs. I felt perhaps Frankel might be tapped for speed in the Guineas ...
I've scrutinised every aspect of AFB and I'm finding it very difficult to spot a weakness. He showed lots of speed in the Phoenix, sailing through unextended. He looked remarkably uncomplicated in a slow run National, racing amenably without cover, cantering all over Herald The Dawn (beaten 3l in the Lagardere) and winning on the bridle. So what would he find for pressure in the Dewhurst? Well, he was certainly asked the question by Moore, and a 6l beating of Sanus per Aquam is pretty persuasive on the book, although he was being ridden pretty hard to get past SPA and the winning margin might have been flattering owing to the others running out of steam. Nevertheless, my speed figure for him was well up to scratch, two pounds better than Dawn Approach, not mind-blowing but very hard to beat. Those credentials, plus the absence of an obvious challenger, a market rival of substance, makes it very hard to oppose him.
So I tried again and looked at his Dewhurst run. I'd be interested to hear other views on this, but the horse seemed to me to be looking a bit clumsy when initially put under pressure. His head seemed to be lugging right, perhaps staring at the crowds, and Moore had to make a sustained effort to correct it. Having said that, the horse did keep finding and it's very hard to crab what he achieved. Whether his final furlong is evidence of a strong finishing, stamina laden horse or whether the others simply wilted quite quickly is impossible for me to say. I wonder what might happen if there's a horse good enough to go with him for a furlong under pressure, but where is that horse?
Then there's the pedigree. As Madhu says, US bred horses have a poor record in the race. You couldn't say he's certain to get the mile on pedigree, or even that he's certain to train on. The Guineas mile is demanding not because of the track but the type of race it turns out to be - a sustained, straight gallop. Look at the record of sprinting sires in the race over the past 20 years: terrible. One of the few two year old races of a similar type is the Coventry, which he wasn't quite good enough to win, albeit lacking experience at the time. In terms of training on, Declaration of War is the one truly persuasive precedent for this sire being able to get top class older turf horses in Europe.
So there's my two penny worth. I want to oppose him on paper but on the track he has done so little wrong, and where are the alternatives? Blue De Vega's case seems stronger with every day that passes since he last ran. I think Stormy Antarctic is decent each way value if there's give in the ground due to his hold up style looking ideal for coming late off a strong pace.
Report impossible123 April 19, 2016 8:04 PM BST
I just cannot back AFB on his own as it represents no value at all as AFB is no penalty kick unlike Douvan, Vautour, Thistlecrack, etc. And of the two O'Brien's Minding, with the form and ground to suit, represents much better value if ready for the 1000G.

I can see Stormy Antarctic, if settles early and ground (soft/heavy) conducive, causing a major upset.

Interesting comments from AOB this morning about AFB that he is all speed and may not be best at a mile and could go back in trip later in the season if does not get the mile. Looking at his DI of 2.64 he is not nailed on to get the trip and looking back over the last 56 years only 13 horses have won with a higher DI however he is all class and the 3 year old colts do not seem up to much this year so will probably still win easily.

No reason why he should beat AFB on their Dewhurst running - AFB was hardly stopping at the end of the 7f so hard to think the mile is going to be an issue unless he is really fresh and runs to keen.

Only one horse to be on in this race IMO and that is MARCEL.

He might have won the RP Trophy at 33/1 and unfancied, but the cobblers about Foundation being unlucky are overplayed. MARCEL came from last to first in a matter of strides, quickened clear and stayed clear. He is proven at 1m, proven on soft ground if required, and on a line through JOHANNES VERMEER, should be 2nd fav (JV beat Stormy Antarctic).

Think he ought to go close.

Report harry callaghan April 28, 2016 6:43 PM BST
a desperate affair for a guineas class wise and a guineas lacking any real strength in depth which is continuing a recent trend for 3 year old milers (bar frankel) as breeding continues to be drawn down class wise, with breeders continuing to use gambled on sires, unproven at producing decent class bloodstock

this bares out with war front who is proving a decent sire no more, siring the favorite here and stormy atlantic siring his namesake the second fav, he is nothing more than an average stakes race progeny producer, the longer the breed gets stretched the more the breed gets weakened, with mares with weak bloodlines then producing weak class wise progeny

anyway moving onto the race and a strong favorite here with air force blue leading the market, he produced a really good debut performance at the curragh when making all to win, this may have been against him next time at ascot when restraining tactics were used, as he pulled hard and was caught mid track with no cover, he still ran well but buratino who was also free in the race just a tad more battle hardened, nailed him after looking like winning with a furlong to run, i'd say he learnt plenty from this run as he has gradually learnt to drop the bit and improved significantly on his next 3 starts for hold up tactics

i like others don't have AFB doing anything special but i thought his phoenix win was a top class performance from a juvenile, although like most of his races he has run in, a muddling pace has been the order of the day and he has just shown a nice turn of foot to win...the dewhurst on the other hand they appeared to go a decent pace with just class prevailing, as the horses he beat could not sustain the fractions they were setting, this for me was the fact these horses just weren't good enough and in all fairness they didn't look good enough pre race...

he has a mixed pedigree that says he maybe a sprinter but chatham the mother who just sprinted in her career was probably just useless, is by marias son who has produced kentucky derby winners so it does offer plenty of hope imo

he is a keen type however and i'd imagine you could take 4/6 in running anyway, even if he drops the bit so if backing a short one is your thing i'd back in running... i just couldn't bring myself to back him at the odds but the race hasn't much depth so what price should he be, well for me he should be 4/5 at least here... everyone keeps saying aiden o'brien is flying at the moment, in which i'd answer yes he is, at dundalk and other gaff tracks but he isn't turning up any trees imo anywhere else, anyway 4/6 is the price no thx here

of the other horses i'm actually really keen on stormy atlantic ew here, a thoroughly progressive colt who just keeps giving, he for me ran up against one of the best 2 year olds last year in johanne vermeer in france just narrowly failing after going the inside route without cover, everyone keeps saying he needs cut but his pedigree says he'll love better ground and i'd put his run at ascot purely down to being backward rather than him not acting on the surface he rates a solid chance for me and if johanne vermeer were running i'd be all over him

people will argue well if you like the vermeer horse so much you must like marcel here who beat him at doncaster and yes i do i just want to see him back up his run really, although i'm certainly going to balance my book with him he rates the value, although he looked like he had a lot to do physically and may just need this race if he doesn't and doesn't need soft ground he has to go well

massaat looks like he'll be a better 3 year old for his rookie trainer, he got beat on debut by a nice horse although had to go to a gaff track to break his maiden, i am struggling to get an angle on him yet, hopefully this race will tell me more

buratino looked a decent 2 year old surely something will improve past him

galileo gold is a gamble here a progressive 2 year old plenty on here though surely

there are some likely rags with jim bolger having his string pretty forward i'd say he is expecting a big run from herald the dawn, ribchester is interesting but if i had to have a stab at one at big odds its zonderland nice maiden win after problems and i just wonder whether he could be a horse to follow this season, anyway i've pizzed on enough should be a good race hopefully the weather stays fine

Nothing untoward showed up post the race, but O'Brien reckoned he could have overtrained AFB; AFB will try to redeem himself in the Irish equivalent.
