The acceptance for the Thousand Guineas have been released, with 16 fine fillies and two emergencies ready to run the race this Wednesday October 13.
The best chance in the race looks to be More Strawberries, who has been on something of a tear recently with wins in the Group 2 Furious Stakes and Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes, as well as a second place in the Group 1 Flight Stakes.
More Strawberries major rival Parables is also nowhere to be seen after proving dominance over her 3 times now. Parables and More Strawberries had a bit of a battle for the favourite spot in the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, but it looks like More Strawberries won that race comprehensively.
A filly that could be in with a real chance on Wednesday is Divorces, who finished just barely behind More Strawberries in the Furious Stakes and won the Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude. An eleventh place finish in the Edward Manifold Stakes will likely have scared off many punters, but Divorces could end up being the best value in this run.
Sistine Angel is another to watch, as the winner of the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes and the Edward Manifold Stakes. She placed second behind Divorces in the Thousand Guineas Prelude, but then immediately finished far ahead of her rival in the next race. As the only one of these top chances to have a win at 1600 metres, Sistine Angel should be a force to be reckoned with in this race.
