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.
