2000 Guineas Betting Tips, Predictions & Odds (Newmarket - 4.5.2019)
The 2019 flat season really kicks off this weekend with the first Classics of the season, the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday 4th May. This article contains our 2000 Guineas preview with betting tips, predictions, best odds, bookie promotions and no deposit free bets.


The 2000 Guineas, now sponsored by Qipco, was first run in 1809. It’s name relates to the original purse and it pre-dates the 1000 Guineas, for fillies only, by five years.

The absences of the likes of Too Darn Hot, Calyx, Quorto and Persian King makes this year’s renewal of the 2000 Guineas one of the most open renewals for years.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's 2000 Guineas and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

TEN SOVEREIGNS is the ante-post favourite. This horse is one of just four unbeaten colts in the field (along with Skardu, Name The Wind and Al Hilalee). He won  all three starts in 2018, a maiden (by seven lengths) and Round Tower Stakes, both at the Curragh, and Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket. he is yet to be tried over one mile, and his breeding suggests that he might be better suited to sprint trips rather than stepping up in trip to contest this longer distance.

MAGNA GRECIA has won all three of his starts last year inside of a month - which culminated in winning the Futurity Trophy at Doncaster in October (Saxon Warrior took the same path twelve months ago, winning that race prior to landing Classic success). He will have no issues regarding stamina, and is one who is likely to be thereabouts at the business end of the race.

ADVERTISE posted a series of classy performances last term, winning three of his five juvenile starts and making the frame in the other two. All three wins have come over six furlongs, which include a defeat of So Perfect in the Group One Phoenix Stakes. But he's had a winter to mature and has always had this race lined up.

MADHMOON finished second in Leopardstown's 2000 Guineas Trial earlier this month, surrendering his unbeaten record. He landed in both starts in 2018, notably in the Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown. The worry with him is that he has yet to race away from Leopardstown, so Newmarket will be something new

SKARDU already boasts course and distance form this season. He caught the eye when winning here last month in the Craven Stakes. Having raced only once last year, he’s clearly improved greatly, and needs consideration.

ROYAL MARINE, trained by Saeed Bin Suroor, has already had two outings in 2019 – at Meydan and Newmarket and has suffered defeat both times as favourite.

Al HILALEE, a Godolphin hopeful, won his maiden impressively at Newmarket but still looked inexperienced when winning a Listed race at Deauville in August. Anyway, he has had another winter to strengthen up and should not be ruled out.

KICK ON arrives here on the back of a winning reappearance, having shown a good attitude when a battling winner of the Fielden Stake. He also finished three lengths sixth to Magna Grecia in Futurity Trophy at Doncaster in 2018

GREAT SCOT took Line Of Duty’s scalp in a novice contest over seven furlongs, and then was only beaten a head by Al Hilalee in a Listed race at Deauville. He wasn’t beaten far when 5th in the Vertem Futurity Trophy (just a length behind Magna Grecia). He won well on fast ground on his stable debut at Chester and has the experience to cope with the undulations of the Rowley Mile.

SET PIECES arrives witj some pretty strong form. Two wins and a third placed finish in three races are good credentials for a 20/1 price horse.

SHINE SO BRIGHT laid down his Guineas credentials with a very impressive win in a Listed event at Newmarket at the Craven Meeting. That's an obvious positive to his chance now stepping up to one mile for the first time. This is a huge test though.

AZANO finished third behind Shine So Bright last time out but looked unsuited by the fast ground at the Craven Meeting. Soft in the going description looks like a must for him to show his best form.
