Thousand Guineas Form Guide

Putting together a Thousand Guineas form guide can be tricky as many of the entrants have been racing in mixed grade against the Caulfield Guineas contenders.

Some fillies excel against their own sex, including 2018 winner Amphitrite and 2017 winner Aloisia, the latter failing to make much of an impression against the guys.

Not many Thousand Guineas winners go on to competed at a high level as older mares, so punters should look for the fillies that are already racing in top form. 

Find runners that have won at least two races prior to the Guineas. Favourites also have a sensational record in this event.

Thousand Guineas History

A relatively new race to the Australian racing calendar, the Thousand Guineas was first run and won 1946 when Sweet Chime took out the race.

Gaining Group One status in 1979, the Thousand Guineas was run on the second day of the Melbourne Spring Carnival from 1988-2013 but was changed to the first day in 2014. 

Classy fillies have won in recent times and many punters have cashed in. Miss Finland, Atlantic Jewel and Guelph were all top punter elects to score the Thousand Guineas.
