2020 Thousand Guineas Tips

Thousand Guineas 2020 Best Bet - Personal

Personal was the third place getter in the 2020 Blue Diamond Stakes before a failed Sydney preparation.

All reports from the Lindsay Park stable are that she has really matured into a beautiful 3YO and looks their number one Spring prospect for the 3YO features.

She has always looked as if more ground will suit her, and maybe now that she is a 3YO, we will really see the best of her over a 1400m to a mile.

If she can come into the Group One with some solid form behind her, she is going to take a power of beating over the mile.

Thousand Guineas 2020 Next Best Bet - Away Game

She was the star of the Autumn, winning the Magic Millions, a game fourth in the Blue Diamond, a second placing in the Golden Slipper and a win in the Arrowfield Sprint.

The question over her is 'how much has that campaign taken out of her'? And 'will she improve into her 3YO year'?

If she comes back an improved 3YO, it is hard to be confident in any Filly beating her this season, but if the others have caught up to her, she may be vulnerable over a longer trip.

Thousand Guineas 2020 Roughie - Parlophone

The 2/3YO Lightening Stakes winner looks as if she may relish the mile with her electric turn of foot.

She has looked to have always had a lot of potential and just late in her 2YO season she has really shown what she is made of.

Having already been campaigning during Winter, it will take a masterclass from the stable to land her in this race and keeping the Filly up for so long.

If she can come into the race in good order, she has the turn of foot and x-factor to win this race.
