Ryan Moore's thoughts on Saxon Warrior and Gustav Klimt
https://coolmore.com/farms/ballydoyle/n ... 00-guineas

O'Brien pair deserve to head 2000 Guineas market

I think Gustav Klimt is the deserved favourite for the big one at home in the 2000 Guineas.

I liked him a lot at two, when we didn't see him after he won the Superlative Stakes on the July course, and did so again when he won in much different ground at Leopardstown on his return.

The testing conditions would not have been in his favour there but he picked up well to beat a race-fit rival and the expected better ground at Newmarket will suit him well. This looks a good spot for him.

I loved everything about Saxon Warrior last season. I was very taken with him in the Beresford and he showed a really good attitude to beat Roaring Lion in the Racing Post Trophy.

Okay, the form has taken a couple of knocks but that was a high-class effort, trust me, and Aidan is very happy with how he has done over the winter. And he wouldn't be the first horse that he has brought here to win a Guineas first time out.

There’s another nice Frankel in the race: Elarqam, who is out of 1,000 Guineas winner Attraction.

I'm glad to hear it, Ryan Moore seemed really high on him in that bit I posted, so I'm sure he was rooting for him!

Here’s hoping Mendelssohn makes giving up that ride worthwhile.

I thought it was very high praise when RM chose to ride him here. Let's hope he's as astute in choosing horses as he is in riding them :D

Donnacha O'Brien thanked his dad in a post-race comment for trusting him with the horse. I believe that makes it his first classic win!
