Air Force Blue storms to the top at Newmarket

TITLEGOESHERE | Radio Kerry | 96-98FM | Your Voice in The Kingdom

Air Force Blue stormed to the top of the betting for next year’s 2000 Guineas with a sensational performance in victory in today’s Group 1 Dubai Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket. Sent off the well-backed 4-6 favourite to follow up his Group 1 win in the Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at the Curragh on Longines Irish Champions Weekend, Air Force Blue and Ryan Moore never looked in a moment’s danger of getting beaten, and once the field settled down to scrap it out just over a furlong for home, the Aidan O’Brien-trained winner took complete control and ran out the hugely impressive winner. Running in the colours of John Magnier, Air Force Blue cements the Coolmore/Ballydoyle stranglehold on next year’s Classics after yesterday’s Group 1 Fillies Stakes victory for Minding.   [audio_player src=””]
