Galileo and Blue head Guineas field


Galileo Gold and Air Force Blue head the eight runners declared for the Tattersalls 2000 Guineas at the Curragh on Saturday.

Air Force Blue was sent off the odds-on favourite for the Newmarket Classic but he only managed to trail in 12th of the 15 runners, with Galileo Gold running out a surprise winner by a length and a half.

Aidan O'Brien is hopeful that his colt, who was crowned champion juvenile last term, will stay the trip and has hinted that he will leave the headgear for the Curragh feature.

O'Brien is responsible for half of the eight-runner field with Newmarket fourth Air Vice Marshal, Derrinstown Derby Trial runner-up Shogun and Bravery all declared.

Jim Bolger has declared Sanus Per Aquam, while Kevin Prendergast's Awtaad and Blue De Vega from Michael O'Callaghan's yard complete the field.
