The United States backed to stake Guineas claim

THE United States has been well supported to give Aidan O'Brien back-to-back wins in Sunday's Leopardstown 2,000 Guineas Trial Stakes.

O'Brien will be hoping the unbeaten son of Galileo, a general 25-1 for the Newmarket Classic, can follow in the hoofprints of last year's hero Furner's Green and punters expect him to do just that.

Paddy Power offered 5-2 on Sunday morning but have been forced into 15-8, with market rivals Move To Strike and Dibayani proving easy to back.

O'Brien runs Snow Queen in the Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial Stakes and, although firm at around the 7-2 mark, it's the David Wachman-trained Hint Of A Tint that has been attracting support.

The once-raced Curragh maiden winner is outright favourite at 3-1 in places now, although Paddy Power offer a biggest 7-2 (from 9-2).

In the concluding handicap on the Leopardstown card, a horse better associated with jumps racing has been supported to land the 1m6f event.

Whatuthink, the oldest in the field at 11, won at the track last July and is a 14-1 shot (from 25) with Paddy Power to repeat the trick.
