Eleven fillies have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Pasadena Girl ($4.40) is a proven performer over the distance and grade and remains outright favourite in 2015 Thousand Guineas betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Stay With Me ($4.80) and Badawiya ($5).
Will Pasadena Girl justify favouritism and win the 2015 Thousand Guineas or will one of her talented rivals find the line in the clear?
Pasadena Girl ($4.40)
Pasadena Girl has steadily built to the task through two starts this time and should find the 2015 Thousand Guineas in peak order. Debuting for consecutive wins in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) and Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m), Pasadena Girl ran on for a credible fourth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) before charging home to take out the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) with relative ease on April 18th. Hugh Bowman picks up the ride on the classy filly, who will revel in an even-weights race.
Miss Gunpowder ($6)
Adelaide filly Miss Gunpowder has returned to racing in slick form this time and will likely take up the running in the 2015 Thousand Guineas, but will need luck after drawing the outside barrier. Charging home to win the Irish Race Day 29th August BM86 (1100m) first-up this time, the Pendragon filly progressed to third in the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) before taking out each of the Hughes Chauffeured Limos Plate (1250m) and Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) most recently. 3rd
Jameka is another particularly exciting racing prospect for in-form trainer Ciaron Maher and appears as though she will relish a step-up to 1600m for the 2015 Thousand Guineas. Running fourth in the Talindert Stakes and returning to the paddock after taking out the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m), the Myboycharlie filly has run third in each of the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) and Thousand Guineas Prelude this time.
