Air Force Shoots Down Rivals

William Hill have slashed the price of Air Force Blue for the 2000 Guineas to Even-Money from 4-1 after he routed the opposition in the Dubai Dewhurst Stakes. 

“Air Force Blue looks every inch the superstar and if he continues to progress he will take the world of beating in the 2000 Guineas,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

The runner-up Massaat has been docked by William Hill to 14-1 from 25-1 for the Guineas and 16-1 from 40-1 for the Derby, while Emotionless has heavily drifted for the Guineas to 16-1 from 5-1 after a very disappointing performance.
