    12 runners are set to contest the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket on Sunday with Santa Barbara heading the market. Will the 5/4 favourite give trainer Aidan O’Brien a fifth win in six years in the race? Let's take a look at the main contenders.

    1000 Guineas Betting Tips

    SANTA BARBARA made just one appearance as a juvenile, winning a maiden over a mile at the Curragh. Hence, her short price is based mainly on the words of her trainer Aidan O'Brien who waxed lyrical about this daughter of Camelot.

    SACRED won the Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket in mid-April in impressive fashion, beating Saffron Beach that day. William Haggas’ filly was campaigned exclusively over five and six furlongs last season and finished 2nd in the Lowther Stakes and second in the Flying Childers Stakes.

    ALCOHOL FREE ended last season with a fine win in the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket over 6 furlongs. Andrew Balding's mare built on that effort with a narrow success in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury over seven furlongs. The mile remains a question mark.

    SAFFRON BEACH lost her unbeaten record when runner-up to Sacred in her trial - the  Nell Gwyn Stakes. She’s only raced at the Rowley Mile so the local knowledge will come in handy. Furthermore, Her sire, New Bay excelled when stepped up beyond the mile.

    FEV ROVER went down by a head to Dandalla at the July Meeting last year, but followed up with a victory over Dubai Fountain at Sandown. She also ran in France, beating the well-regarded Plainchant and finished fourth in the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac when things did not fall right. She could go well at an each-way price with conditions expected to suit.

    MOTHER EARTH won once in eight juvenile starts, but she placed on her final two starts in Group Ones. She finished third in the Fillies' Mile at Newmarket, and was a gallant runner-up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies' Turf on her last outing.

    Dark horses?

    STATEMENT has recorded one win and three seconds from her four career starts and was runner-up to Alcohol Free in the Fred Darling at Newbury and would have been in front with another stride. She looks a fascinating contender judged on that effort and should be monitored along with Vadream who was 3rd in that event.

    LULLABY MOON has won three of four starts, including a Group 3 in France in October. She was also a good third behind Umm Kulthum in the Cheveley Park Stakes at Ayr in her only defeat. Her odds of 33/1 is very appealing.
