Plenty of Guineas interest as favourite prepares for Greenham

| 16.04.2011

Saturday’s Greenham Stakes at Newbury will have plenty of influence on the 2000 Guineas odds as Frankel looks to justify his odds-on favouritism against Guineas rival Strong Suit.

It’s 182 days since we last saw the highly exciting three-year-old and Henry Cecil’s sprinter is 4/11 to make a winning start to his season in the 3.10 at Newbury.

The 4/5 odds-on favourite in the 2000 Guineas betting, punters will be eager to see how the three-year-old performs on his first meeting of the season and should he win comprehensively as his odds suggest, his 2000 Guineas odds are likely to be cut.

Frankel will take on just five other runners as he bids to continue his unbeaten record, and of the five opponents, Strong Suit (3/1) is the most interesting challenger as he also lines up in the 2000 Guineas betting.

Strong Suit is the 16/1 fourth favourite in the 2000 Guineas betting and should he tame Frankel today, you can expect a rush of money in the Guineas betting.

But beating Frankel takes some doing and the potential star of the 2011 Flat season is just 6/1 to complete a 2000 Guineas and Derby victory.

Frankel is the 9/2 favourite in the Derby betting with Seville playing second fiddle at 8/1.

At the moment nothing comes close to the kind of support Frankel is receiving in all of the races he’s entered for and you can expect plenty of money at Newbury today to make it five wins from five.

All of today’s horse racing odds can be found at the sportsbook and with other strong races such as the Scottish Grand National and the Spring Cup taking place today, theres plenty of horse racing action to bet on.

We’ve tipped Regal Heights (33/1) for the big race at Ayr today and we’re finding it difficult to oppose Frankel today.

A £10 stake on Regal Heights winning the Scottish Grand National would return £340. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a Scottish Grand National free bet worth up to £30.
