Thousand Guineas Tips

The Thousand Guineas is fillies version of the Caulfield Guineas held at Caulfield race course on October 13.

Restricted to three-year-olds, fillies such as Atlantic Jewel and Miss Finland have all claimed glory in the event.

Flit dominates the market after Tuesday's barrier draw from Group One winner Lyre and powerful filly Missile Mantra, with all fillies looking to become valuable broodmares.

Thousand Guineas Best Bet - Flit @ $2.10

You simply could not have missed her run a fortnight ago in the Thousand Guineas Prelude where she was a good thing beat.

Back in Sydney, she is rated as one of the best three-year-old fillies along with Funstar who was explosive in the Group One Flight Stakes last week.

Flit has looked like she will extend out to the mile and he figures have shown this, having the fastest split between the 800m and 600m when she started to build her momentum and she ran an 11 flat for the 400m to 200m where she really showed a turn of foot.

It was race over from here having no galloping room from the 200m where she clearly would have wont race if she saw clear air.

She has drawn barrier two for Saturday and I think she may park herself closer to the speed and hope for a bit more luck in running.

Thousand Guineas Value Bet - Missile Mantra @ $7.50

She is the second favourite but she is more a $5 chance I believe.

She has savaged the line at her past two starts and she is really looking for the mile now. 

The bad gate will not worry her as she is a get back type anyway and will hope that there is a bit more speed in front than last start.

They had a mid-race slow down in the prelude which had ruled her out of the race coming from the back.

I think there will be a bit more speed here, purely because the favourite has drawn the inside so the field will not want to be dictated to by her, meaning this may give Missile Mantra to come home over the top while the front five or six play games with each other,
