Thousand Guineas Form Guide & Tips
Lyre ($5.50) Bet Now
Anthony Freedman lines up the filly which has won three from eight starts, including the Blue Diamond Stakes on this track.
That’s some strong form but unfortunately for punters, she hasn’t been able to show her best in three starts this campaign.
Drawn well and she could mature into a nice miler.
Tenley ($12) Bet Now
Tenley is another runner that made a big impression early but her recent form has been anything but impressive.
She won her first three starts in fine style but her form quickly took a turn for the worse. She ran consecutive shockers and we’re not sure she’s running well enough.
Paying good odds but rightfully so.
Flit (Best Bet – $2.30) Bet Now
Punters should overlook the run from Flit in the Guineas Prelude last start. She got back in the run and didn’t have any racing room in the straight.
It was disappointing for punters but she’s every chance to win the main event and the James Cummings-trained filly could get it done.
She has finished in the money in four of her five starts, which includes form around some of the best age-group stars in Australia.
Looks the best winning hope.
Acting (Best Roughie – $10) Bet Now
Acting is on fire after posting three consecutive wins and she could continue with that form here.
She’s from the in-form Busuttin/Young stable and after winning the Prelude by 1.5 lengths, she deserves the utmost respect.
Double-figure odds on offer and we’re enjoying the value.
I Am Eloquent ($23) Bet Now
Has looked good causes a couple of upset results when winning this season. She could add another win here but there’s more depth to this field.
Drawn well here and it could attract some attention at the odds.
St Edward’s Crown ($34) Bet Now
This filly looked to have potential when first starting but she looks to be outclassed in this Group 1.
Drawing wide won’t help her chances and we’re prepared to look at her chances in something much easier.
Missile Mantra (Best Each Way – $9.50) Bet Now
Missile Mantra scored wins at her first two starts before enduring some unlucky runs.
She has run three consecutive fifths and two of those were extremely unlucky. The rise in distance could negate her luck and her odds are generous.
She owns a good turn-of-foot and drawing wide shouldn’t be a problem as she’ll drop back regardless.
Southbank ($17) Bet Now
Scored a good win to break maiden grades fresh up and she has run well since.
This is much harder but there is some support with bookmakers. Chance if her odds continue to shorten.
Barbie’s Fox ($20) Bet Now
Good money is coming for this filly at nice odds. Has run well coming into this and she should appreciate the mile.
Gets the inside draw with Damien Oliver in the saddle.
Emeralds ($13) Bet Now
Has looked good at times and the John Sargent stable knows what it takes to win these big age-group races.
She will need to improve on her last couple of efforts but she’s capable and should be included in first-four selections.
Affair to Remember ($23) Bet Now
Showed good ability when winning two back but she was well-held last time out.
Might be looking for something a little easier but she’s another runner which has attracted attention at odds.
