The Thousand Guineas looks to be one of the most open renewals I have seen in a long time. The three year old filly races are usually the easiest to punt on as there are clear standouts, however that’s not the case this year and nothing would surprise! The best ride and the horse with luck in running will win. You could easily make a case for nearly every horse in the race.

I have a slight leaning to MOLTO BENE $4.20 as she has performed very well in each of her runs and comes into this fresh which will suit her. She had 17 days between runs last prep when she came out and destroyed the field in the Group 3 Sires (Adelaide). Barrier 5 was a blessing as she can sit midfield now and not have to give away a big start. She will give you a great sight and I think she is the one to beat with even luck in running.

LOVE FOR RANSOM $7.50 can still win but will need luck from gate 15. She will go back and Boss will look for some cover. She will need a hot tempo up front and she’ll need a trail into the race, but if things fall her way there won’t be many sprinting faster than her late.

Really liked the last two runs from MAYBE DISCREET. She has attacked the line on both occasions and she is a deserved 2nd fav from gate 9 with Nolen on.

COMMANDING JEWEL and MEMBERS JOY have both been excellent in all their runs and continue to turn up. A win would not surprise but I’m looking more at them as horses to throw in multiples. Again luck in running will play a big part.

The best roughies in the race may well be DAZZLER (SCRATCHED)$16 who has had very little luck this time in work, and STELLA LANTE $17 who has finished next to LOVE FOR RANSOM at her last two starts but is paying more than twice that horse in the markets.


*At the end of the day this is just my opinion and it’s an extremely even and open Guineas. I’d be sticking with whatever you have liked all along.

Good luck if you have a bet!
