Forecast

Too Darn Hot (2/1), Phoenix Of Spain (5/2), King Of Comedy (4/1), Skardu (7/1), Circus Maximus (10/1), Shaman (14/1), Fox Champion (25/1), Royal Marine (33/1), Bell Rock (33/1), Van Beethoven (66/1), The Irish Rover (100/1)

Verdict
PHOENIX OF SPAIN won the Irish 2,000 Guineas in fine style last time out and there's every chance he can progress from his first run of the season here. Too Darn Hot may have found that run coming a little too soon after his Dante second and may also be able to put up an improved performance. Skardu and Shaman are both interesting and any deterioration in conditions would make the latter of interest.
  1. Phoenix Of Spain
  2. Too Darn Hot
  3. Shaman
