Confirming the serious nature of the G1 2,000 Guineas form, Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum’s Newmarket runner-up Rosallion (Ire) (Blue Point {Ire}–Rosaline {Ire}, by New Approach {Ire}) went one better to lead a Richard Hannon one-two in Saturday’s G1 Tattersalls Irish 2000 Guineas at The Curragh. Held up in mid-division by Sean Levey with the pace steady, the 10-11 favourite began his delivery two out as the stable’s Haatem (Ire) (Phoenix Of Spain {Ire}) took control and his wilting run proved perfectly-timed. Getting the yard’s bragging rights only in the final yards, last year’s G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere hero asserted for a head success, with Ballydoyle’s TDN Rising Star River Tiber (Ire) (Wootton Bassett {GB}) running big on his 3-year-old bow 1 1/4 lengths further away. The 2,000 Guineas had already looked strong earlier in the afternoon, with the G2 Sandy Lane S. taken by the same owner’s sixth-placed Inisherin (GB) (Shamardal).

 

Classic glory!
