The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with three to follow on Saturday
This year's Qipco 2,000 Guineas looks a pretty weak affair with most of the top mile colts suffering setbacks leading into the first Classic of the year, which could leave the door open for Kevin Prendergast's Madhmoon to notch his first Group 1 success. I made the contest between him and Magna Grecia, but the price and draw swayed me towards Madhmoon, who can put his first career defeat on his reappearance behind him now he encounters quicker ground. He boasts some strong mile form and proved his electric turn of foot in two contests last season, before getting slightly bogged down in the soft ground over 7f last month. That wasn't a bad run by any means and he is likely to come on a bundle for that effort.
Peckinpah (5.30 Goodwood)
Tracker horse alert. Alan King's white-faced Peckinpah caught my eye on handicap debut when finishing a strong-staying third at Wolverhampton last month and should improve for a return to turf and being stepped up in trip here. The son of Excelebration still looked a little green on that occasion and was galloping up in the air a tad close home, but he stuck on well and that looked a stronger race than he finds himself in here.
Intuitive (4.10 Newmarket)
James Tate looks to have a few nice three-year-olds on his hands, which include this son of Haatef who is 2-3 in his career so far. Having finished eighth on debut at Newbury, Intuitive hasn't looked back with strong late bursts seeing him notch a couple of Kempton novice events on his two subsequent starts. The former breeze-up purchase is a push-button ride and provided he handles the dip, he must go close on handicap debut off his initial mark of 87. That rating matches the RPR he gained last time out and the form of that victory was given a fair boost when the runner-up won cosily off 80 last week.
