The Thousand Guineas has been won by champions, often in seasons where there is a standout filly such as Miss Finland, Guelph and Atlantic Jewel.

For 2021, a very even field awaits with the Freedman trained Zouzarella heading the betting with Sportsbet at $4.20.

2021 Thousand Guineas Tips

Thousand Guineas 2021 Best Bet - Hinged

Coming into this race, one thing we can note is that the Victorian three-year-old fillies are well and truly below the colts and geldings, so thinking the Sydney form is where we want to be tackling what have been a very even crop of fillies in Victoria.

Hinged was runner-up in the Flight Stakes to Never Been Kissed who subsequently franked the form when running second in the Spring Champion Stakes.

From gate nine, she is likely going to get back, but that type of sweeping down the outside is where I want to be, which fits the bill of this filly nicely.

Thousand Guineas 2021 Next Best Bet - Barb Raider

This filly brings in different form lines to the rest of this field which is what has landed me having her in second spot. 

I have major queries over her at the mile as she looks a beautiful staying and Oaks type of filly, but having not raced the Zouzarella's of the world, she may have that hint of X factor that has not been exposed.

Barb Raider is certainly tight in the market and not a spoil at the current odds, but from what I have heard, this girl is low-flying heading into the event.

Thousand Guineas 2021 Value Bet - Swift Witness

We know where this daughter of Star Witness will be, and this is bowling along in front as she did in the Flight Stakes.

Seeing as she finished fourth in the Group One Flight Stakes and coming from the Waterhouse/Bott yard who know how to back-up a filly into this event, I feel she does reserve the right to be a single figure chance in the event.

Turning the tables on Hinged is the ask, but as an each-way play you cannot look past Swift Witness at $4 the place.
