2000 Guineas: Native Khan in focus
by Handicappers / Globeform
Printer-friendly version

Newmarket Saturday:

Having won the Craven on his seasonal debut, the Ed Dunlop trained Native Khan should be fit and ready for a big run as he goes for the Quipco 2,000 Guineas.

He faced nothing of any real consequence when prepping for the Guineas in the Craven Stakes (G3) over this course and distance in April, and he won readily as the warm 4/6 favourite. Native Khan was also a bit too warm himself, having been edgy and sweating in the preliminaries. The outing was probably needed to take the edge off him ahead of his classic assignement.

Trainer Ed Dunlop decided to run him in the trial “because the colt came to hand earlier than expected”. Native Khan, a big fine sort, won the Craven by 2 lengths from Libranno (who was conceding 3lb). Last year, he impressed by winning on his debut at Newmarket's July course, and when landing the Solario Stakes (G3) at Sandown Park, where he beat Measuring Time by half a length over 7 furlongs. Measuring Time was second in the Classic Trial (G3) at Sandown last Sunday. Native Khan stepped up in class after his Sandown win, and he shaped well in the Racing Post Trophy (G1) at Doncaster in October. The ground was too soft for him but he checked in fourth behind Casamento, Seville and Master Of Hounds – beaten 3 ˝ lengths by the winner. Native Khan has shown us that he has trained on, he stays the mile well, he prefers firm ground and he will be a popular horse for exacta and each-way backers on Saturday.
