While unproven at 1600m, Jacquinot (barrier 11) is the class runner in the 2023 Australian Guineas, with the son of Rubick now back against his own age group after a Group 1 win in the CF Orr Stakes.

Undefeated from two efforts this campaign, this three-year-old also took out a strong edition of the Golden Rose last August, where he defeated five individual Group 1 winners.

Exciting New Zealand galloper Legarto (barrier 9) creates plenty of interest, with this filly having won her first five starts before an unlucky fourth Karaka Millions 3yo Classic.

After being twice Group 1 placed last spring, Elliptical (barrier 2) got his first black-type win on the board with a return win in the CS Hayes, which is a traditional lead-up to the Australian Guineas

Attrition (barrier 7) was luckless in that same race and that performance followed two very impressive summer wins to open his campaign.

16 runners (plus one emergency) make up the final field for the 2023 Australian Guineas.

Australian Guineas Winners

The Australian Guineas is Melbourne's main three-year-old race of the autumn carnival, with this Group 1 contested over 1600m at Flemington.

It's somewhat of a new race on the Australian calendar, gaining Group 1 status one year after its inception in 1986 and this feature was known as the Australasian Guineas until 2004.

While it has a rather short history, The Australian Guineas has a decent honour roll, with Zabeel, Mahogany, Reset, Apache Cat, Miss Finland, Mystic Journey and Alligator Blood among the famous winners of this event.

Alligator Blood (2020), Lunar Fox (2021) and Hitotsu (2022) have won the last three editions of the Australian Guineas.
