Following first nominations for the 2011 Thousand Guineas, bookmakers have installed four fillies as equal favourites for the 2011 Thousand Guineas.
After an impressive two year old season the John Thompson trained Pane in the Glass has been installed as one of the favourites at the $11.00 mark. Pane in the Glass also has the advantage of having displayed impressive form at the mile. The Patinack Farm filly finished second behind the highly rated colt Helmet in the Group One Champagne Stakes in April.
The Gai Waterhouse trained Shared Reflections is also $11.00 in bookmaker books. The filly showed promise by winning the Group Two Sweet Embrace Stakes and was given no favours when she finished sixth in the Golden Slipper. She is also expected to gain the services of leading jockey Nash Rawiller, which is a big plus.
The John O’Shea trained Elite Falls is also amongst the favourites, however there is no guarantee that she will target the Thousand Guineas. John O’Shea has confirmed that she will resume in the Silver Shadow Stakes, which is part of the Princess Series which includes the Group Three Silver Shadow Stakes, the Group Two Furious Stakes, the Group Two Tea Rose Stakes and the Group One Flight Stakes. The More Than Ready filly has also been nominated for the Group One Golden Rose and if she hits top gear that race could be a more attractive option for the O’Shea.
The fourth filly who shares early favouritism is Kiwi Anabandana. Trained by Don Selwood, the impressive filly has managed to win four races on the trot including the Group One Manawatu Produce Stakes. That day she beat Dowager Queen (who has been nominated for the 2011 Cox Plate) and it seems her major hurdle will be handling the trip to Australia.
