Thinking my Irish 2000 Guineas super-fecta will look something like this: 1st-Kingman 2nd-Mustajeeb 3rd-Shifting Power 4th-War Command.
The field for the Irish 2000 Guineas isn't as deep as the English 2000 Guineas field was IMO, but still an intriguing race nonetheless. Kingman is likely gonna get ground much more to his liking at the Curragh than he got at Newmarket, and if John Gosden has him at the top of his game they're all likely running for 2nd place money. That being said, racing's a funny sport and should be Kingman be below par for any reason there's 2 or 3 horses in this field capable of giving him a fair old scrap. Dr. Dermot Weld's colt owned by Shadwell, Mustajeeb, was very impressive recently making easy work of some very decent older horses in the G3 Amethyst Stakes and looks very progressive. Richard Hannon's colt, Shifting Power, has done almost nothing wrong and his only loss to date remains his 4th in the English 2000 Guineas, and I also don't think you can summarily dismiss War Command's chances of getting a piece of this race. Aidan O'Brien 3yo have often in years past finished down the field at Newmarket only to come back and run strong races at the Curragh, and he certainly has enough runners in the field to attempt to play team tactics on Kingman. I think tactics will play a bigger part in the outcome of this race than they did at Newmarket, IMO.
