This is a stallion making race for many of the colts, and in the past we have seen the likes of Shamus Award, Wandjina & Palentino all stand at stud post winning this race.

Profondo is currently the horse that the bookies are favouring to win the Australian Guineas.

Australian Guineas 2022 Tips


Australian Guineas 2022 Best Bet - Profondo

Already a Group One winner after just three starts, this Deep Impact colt is the real deal and could be the next superstar of Australian racing.

Profondo took out the Spring Champion Stakes in the spring making a mess of the likes of VRC Derby runner-up Alegron.

This is his hardest test to date, especially first-up over the mile, but his trials have been spot on and the class is there to do some scary things in this sport.

Australian Guineas 2022 Next Best Bet - Captivant

If you are looking for a horse who is set to peak in this race, you have found your colt in the form of the Caulfield Guineas runner-up Captivant.

Captivant was just fair first-up in Sydney over 1200m then very good through the line in the CS Hayes Stakes and now to the mile, this is going to be his sweet spot.

Just a half length from Anamoe in the spring, that form is certainly good enough to win this if Profondo is not a superstar.

Australian Guineas 2022 Value Bet - Forgot You

Have always had a soft spot for this horse, and his return in the CS Hayes Stakes was very good when finishing a flashing fourth, clearly looking for the mile.

I am not convinced that he is a stayer by any means, although taking time to build into his work, he has a strong sprint which can see him potent over the mile to 2000m.

Forgot You is likely going to find one or two a touch too classy in terms of raw talent, but he is so honest and is a clear bet if you are looking to back one more for the place than the win.
