Thousand Guineas Form Guide & Tips
1. Swift Witness ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet
Swift Witness is a tough on-pace customer who could be right there in the finish. She has yet to race at Caulfield, and that’s the only concern.
$13 is a value price, so she enters first four calculations.
2. Hinged (Best Each Way – $4.40) Bet @ Sportsbet
A quality type who finished second behind Never Been Kissed in the Flight Stakes. That form was franked last week, so we’re not surprised by the money coming for the Queenslander.
She is a five-time winner from nine starts, so she knows how to win. Her odds could firm even more, so take the $4.40 available.
3. Elusive Express ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet
Already a two-time winner and she got the job done nicely at Flemington last start. We’re unsure if that’s the best betting guide, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she featured in the money.
4. Bon’s A Pearla (Best Roughie – $18) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Corstens-trained three-year-old is seeking three straight wins after scoring at Sandown and Caulfield.
She paid $31 when scoring an upset win at Caulfield, and we like that form going forward. $18 is worth taking and she could slingshot them late.
5. Literary Magnate ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner on debut and she hasn’t been far away since, but it would be a big effort to beat this field. Bookmakers have the right odds available.
6. Zouzarella (Best Bet – $4.40) Bet @ Sportsbet
Started her career with consecutive wins before being unlucky in second last start. She was a length behind Queen of Dubai, but she settled off far back.
Racing at Caulfield shouldn’t worry her, and we’re happy with the odds available for the smart daughter of Zoustar.
7. Heresy ($9) Bet @ Sportsbet
Heresy has yet to win from three starts this season, but she finished second behind Bon’s A Pearla last start, so it’s solid form.
The James Cummings-trained filly has yet to finish worse than third in three attempts at Caulfield, so she wouldn’t be ruling her out with Damien Oliver in the saddle.
8. Queen of Dubai ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
Had all favours last start but she beat Zouzarella home, so that form stacks up well. Already a two-time winner this season, but drawing barrier 10 won’t do her chances any good.
Her odds are drifting, which isn’t a big shock.
9. Yearning ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet
Second behind Elusive Express last start, but change the runs and she might get the better of that field.
She was brought to Melbourne with the Thousand Guineas in mind, and we wouldn’t rule out Team Hawkes from getting it done.
$26 is a fair price for a value runner.
10. Barb Raider ($5.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
We like Barb Raider in the Oaks during Melbourne Cup Week. She won the Oaks Prelude over 1800m last start, and although she’s talented, this run could be for fitness purposes.
We wouldn’t rule out the late entry, but dropping in distance isn’t going to be easy. $5.50 is too short for a runner with 2500m on the horizon.
11. Cuban Link ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet
Searching for three consecutive wins, but we would be surprised if her form was franked at Group 1 level.
Barrier four will give her a nice trip in transit, but she looks outclassed at this level.
12. Achira ($91) Bet @ Sportsbet
Broke maiden grades at Goulburn last start and that form isn’t good enough for this race. She is better suited to something much easier.
13. Fortunate Kiss ($19) Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner earlier this campaign before running second behind Linas Legend and fifth behind Queen of Dubai.
She would need to find a few lengths to be competitive.
