Not So Vintage Stakes?

William Hill were underwhelmed by the performances in the Qatar Vintage Stakes, in which Galileo Gold scored for Hugo Palmer and Frankie Dettori.

The winner in the colours of Al Shaqab racing has been given a quote of 33-1 with William Hill for next year’s Qipco 2000 Guineas.

“The initial impression would be that we’ve already seen better performances from juveniles at Ascot and Galileo Gold will be playing catch-up with those rivals,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Qipco 2000 Guineas: 16-1 Air Force Blue, Buratino, Deauville, 20-1 Sanus Per Aquam, Shalaa, 25-1 Painted Cliffs, Shogun, 33-1 Air Vice Marshal, Birchwood, Galileo Gold, (EW ¼ Odds Places 1,2,3)
