Greenham Stakes - 12th April, 2014

John Gosden's Kingman is one of the leading fancies for the 2000 Guineas next month and the unbeaten Invincible Spirit colt will put his Classic credentials on the line on Saturday afternoon when he lines in a mouth-watering renewal of the Greenham Stakes at Newbury.

An impressive winner of the Solario Stakes on his last start last season saw him enhance his reputation as a major Guineas contender and he will hope that he can produce the goods on Saturday and cement his place in what is shaping up into a fascinating market.

Richard Hannon's Night Of Thunder is another unblemished record heading to the Berkshire venue and his Listed win at Doncaster in October showed his potential and he is another who is aiming to spring into Group One prominence this season with a win in this Group Three.

Paul Cole's Berkshire built on a Listed victory at Royal Ascot in the Chesham Stakes by going on to land the Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes and he is another with the 2000 Guineas in his sights and has to be considered, whilst Richard Fahey's Supplicant was a winner of the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury last time out and will enjoy a trip back to that venue at the weekend.

Marco Botti's Lat Hawill was impressive when landing his maiden race and is open to vast improvement, whilst the likes of Gimcrack and Middle Park Stakes winner Astaire and Godolphin's Golden Town add tremendous depth to a simply stunning contest.

Greenham Stakes History

The Greenham Stakes is a Group Three race run at Newbury over seven furlongs for three-year-old colts and geldings.

Established in 1906, the race is regarded as one of the leading trials for the 2000 Guineas and many have used the race as a springboard to Classic success, whilst some have even gone on to glory at Epsom and lifted the coveted Derby crown.

Ian Balding's Mill Reef had already dominated the two-year-old division a year previous, but in 1971 he was a classy winner of the Greenham before going on to lift the Derby at Epsom along with the Eclipse, King George VI & Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and the Arc in a phenomenonal season.

Sir Henry Cecil has a superb record in the race and has bagged victory on six separate occasions with Wollow and Kris two notable winners in the 1970s, but the leading light of the sextet came in 2011 when he trained the mighty Frankel to victory.

The Warren Place inmate then went on to dominate the flat scene during a record breaking year that saw him remain unbeaten as he notched up victory in the 2000 Guineas before winning the St James's Palace Stakes, Sussex Stakes and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes in a simply mind-blowing season.
