Horse Racing Tips – Group 1 Thousand Guineas

Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at every runner in Wednesday’s Group 1 Thousand Guineas  with horse racing tips for the first four. Read on to see how he maps and assesses the race. Good luck, punters!

1. SWIFT WITNESS (12) 31020×1634

T: Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott /J: Michael Dee (56kg)

What a good horse. She is fast and strong and well up to this level. Probably has to spear out from this gate and charge across the field to find the front. If she does without too much challenge she will prove hard to catch. Is very fit and was just 2 lengths adrift of the smart Never Been Kissed in the Gr 1 Flight over this trip last start.

2. HINGED (9) 112×211102

T: Chris Waller / J: Damian Lane (56kg)

Won brilliantly in Doomben before being transferred to Chris Waller yard. Resumed and needed the run then ran brilliantly when flashing home along the fence to grab 2nd in the Gr 1 Flight Stakes over this journey last start. Very fit now and looks the one to beat. Big show.

3. ELUSIVE EXPRESS (11) 1×231

T: Team Freedman / J: Jye MCNeil (56kg)

Class galloper in the making. Seems to be getting better every start. Flashed home when close-up 3rd to Bon’s A Pearler here over 1400m, then looked dominant when beating Yearning in the Gr 2 Manifold this trip last start. Respect. Big show.

4. BON’S A PEARLA (13) 5311

T: Kevin Corstens/ J: Jason Maskiell (56kg)

This filly is another one on the massive improvement curve. Sat midfield the came home like a rocket to win the Gr 2 Tranquil Star here over 1400m. Harder here but extra trip looks to help.


T: Mat Williams / J: Dean Yendall (56kg)

More than handy and is improving each run. Did run on when a game 3rd in the Listed Atlantic Jewel behind Zouzarella over 1200m. Untried this journey and may struggle late.

6. ZOUZARELLA (2) 112

T: Team Freedman / J: Brett Prebble  (56kg)

Interesting galloper. Is emerging as a force. Has won two of three, latest when coming from a mile back and running 2nd to Queen of Dubai over 1400m at sundown. Extra trip looks in her favour and should run on hard.

7. HERESY (1) 21×232

T: James Cummings / J: Damien Oliver (56kg)

Strong filly who is very well suited by this gate. Is extremely honest and runs home hard. Doesn’t Eem to be worried by the grade or the step up in trip. each run she races the same way – sits back and runs home hard. Has to be a threat. Big show.

8. QUEEN OF DUBAI (10) 79×1751 

T: Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott/ J: Jordan Childs (56kg)

Good reliable speedy type who likes to get out on front and run them along. The softer mid-race tempo here will help her. Led all way to win the listed Jim Moloney over 1400m at big odds. Is fit. Good place show.

9. YEARNING (7) 25×4912 

T: Team Hawkes / J: Damien Thornton (56kg)

Is interesting. is getting better with racing. Carried 61kg to win a Newcastle maiden then stepped up in grade to Gr 2 level and was doing b best work late when 2nd to Elusice Express over this trip. Definite place hope.

10. BARB RAIDER (3) 3211

T: Jerome Hunter/ J: Craig Williams (56kg)

Tough, solid, star in the making. Has only raced 4 times but is on a massive improvement curve each run. Drawn to sit back in 3rd spot getting the run of the race. Unlike the others has never raced in a stakes race but she destroyed a BM 70 field over this trip then up to 1800m last start in a 3YO and as odds on pop, did same thing. Looks up to this.

11. CUBAN LINK  (4) 211

T: Greg Eurell /J: Luke Currie (56kg)

Smart filly in the making. Has raced three times and won past two but they were in weaker races. Does run on but the grade here is tough.

12. ACHIRA (8) 43×201

T: Team Curtis / J: Luke Nolen (56kg)

Sydney filly with talent. Led all the way to win maiden last start comfortably but rises a long way in class here.

13. FORTUNATE KISS (5) 3×125

T: Dan Bowman / J: Dean Holland (56kg)

Won bush maiden over 1000m, then run 2nd at BM 64 before useful 5th to Queen of Dubai last start in Listed Moloney over 1400m making a little ground. This is too hard.
