The first Classic of the Irish flat season takes place on Saturday, as a talented field of colts battle it out in the Irish 2000 Guineas. Ireland's version of this fabled Classic was first held at the Curragh back in 1921 and it's a Charlie Appleby raider who currently dominates the betting for this year's renewal.

Let's take a look through the latest Irish 2000 Guineas betting and run through the headline entries.

2022 Irish 2000 Guineas Entries

Native Trail's unbeaten run was ended by stablemate Coroebus in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Charlie Appleby's star will now return to the Curragh, the scene of his National Stakes triumph last September, and Native Trail is currently best priced at 2/5 to return to winning ways.

Coroebus also features prominently in the Irish 2000 Guineas betting, but he'll head straight to the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. Stablemate and fellow Classic winner, Modern Games also holds an entry, despite Charlie Appleby stating his star would next head to the Prix Du Jockey Club, following his excellent win in the French Guineas at the weekend.

Buckaroo ran out an impressive winner of the Tetrarch Stakes here at the Curragh three weeks ago, and Joseph O'Brien's star sits prominently in this Classic market. Aidan O'Brien could be represented by last year's National Stakes runner-up, Point Lonsdale, who finished a disappointing tenth under Frankie Dettori in the British version of this Classic at Newmarket.

Roger Varian could throw 2.7m GNS purchase Akhu Najla into his first Group One this weekend. Andrew Balding's Berkshire Shadow, Ralph Beckett's Angel Bleau and Hugo Palmer's Dubawi Legend could also make the journey over to the Curragh this weekend.

Aidan O'Brien's Aikhal and Jim Bolger's Wexford Native also feature in the Irish Guineas Festival betting. Other possible runners include Ger Lyon's pair of Dr Zempf and Atomic Jones, Fozzy Stack's Castle Star and Dermot Weld's Duke De Sessa.
