2020 Thousand Guineas Tips

Thousand Guineas 2020 Best Bet - Hungry Heart

This Sydney filly comes down to Melbourne after a second placing in the Flight Stakes just seven days earlier.

The last horse we saw complete this feat was Global Glamour, a filly trained by Gai Waterhourse who was as tough as nails out in front.

She is fit, we know she runs the trip out and she handles the way of Melbourne going based off her first run down the Flemington straight.

With a soft track expected, this will suit this filly being a daughter of Frankel.

The turn of foot she shows is very strong off a solid tempo, which we may get here with the likes of Vangelic and Aidensfield likely to lead them up.

Thousand Guineas 2020 Next Best Bet - Instant Celebrity

She was utterly dominant over the 1400m in the Thousand Guineas prelude, leaving her record at four wins and unbeaten.

Instant Celebrity has to take the step up the 1600m for the first time which is a question to some people, but she more class than most of her rivals which often comes to the fore in these races.

The big tick in her favour is that she gets around Caulfield, whereas that still remains a question for Hungry Heart and Vangelic.

This race is often dominated by those horse in the market, which could see her and Hungry Heart fight out the finish.

Thousand Guineas 2020 Roughie - Personal

This has been her target race for the prep, running well first-up in the Danehill, before a slashing second in the Prelude behind Instant Celebrity.

She will relish every step of the mile and third-up, she is sure to be at her top for this race.

Personal is a Blue Diamond place getter, so she does not lack any class and will be even better as she keeps stepping up in trip.

With the top two dominanting the market, this fiily is sure to slip under the punters guards and can run a big race at a big price.
