Aidan O’Brien Set to Dominate The Weekend

Churchill is the 1/3 favourite to win the Irish 2000 Guineas, although William Hill can report a small move for Thunders Snow at 10/1.

Winter is 4/5 to win the Irish 1000 Guineas, with another 10/1 shot Aneen attracting a run of smaller bets today.

“It looks like business as usual this weekend and we fully expect Mr O’Brien to cost us a pretty penny,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
