Top Betting Sites To Bet Our 1000 Guineas Predictions
This year’s race has lost a couple of leading contenders over the past seven days in Inspiral and Homeless Songs, but the field of 14 is not lacking in quality. Will the 3/1 favourite Tenebrism give trainer Aidan O’Brien a sixth win in seven years in the race? Let's take a look at the main contenders.
1000 Guineas Betting Tips
Aidan O'Brien's TENEBRISM is unbeaten in two outings. She scored by just under four lengths on her debut in March 2021 at Naas (5f, soft), then stepped her up in class to win the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes here in September, beating Flotus and Sandrine in the process. The step up in trip is the only concern.
Jessica Harrington's DISCOVERIES sits second in the current betting. She beat Agartha by three-quarters of a length when winning the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh.
MALAVATH has won three times already, including on her seasonal reappearance at Deauville (7f, heavy), where she finished ahead of ZELLIE. She came very close to causing an upset in the Juvenile Fillies Turf at the Breeders' Cup Championship at Del Mar last November. She finished runner up to Pizza Bianca that day, beaten by less than a lenght. She will be ridden by Christophe Soumillon.
Andre Fabre's ZELLIE won last year’s Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp on Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe weekend. She finished second on her seasonal reappearance, beaten 1½ lengths by Malavath, in the Prix Imprudence on heavy ground over Deauville’s straight seven furlongs.
WILD BEAUTY landed the Grade 1 Natalma Stakes at Woodbine (Canada) last year. She reappeared in the Dubai Duty Free, better known as the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury on 16 April, producing a brilliant display when beating the favourite Jumbly by half a length.
MISE EN SCENE claimed two wins in her first two starts, including the Group 3 Prestige Stakes at Goodwood. She was below par subsequently as she finished fourth in the Fillies Mile, a short-head behind Cachet and half a length in front of Wild Beauty. Then she was sent to the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf but could only finish a lacklustre tenth.
CACHET won on her first outing last year, but her Juvenile campaign was relatively quiet. She has only won two of her nine starts, but has finished third in the Rockfel Stakes and the Fillies Mile, both at Newmarket, and fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
JUNCTURE bolted up in a maiden around Leopardstown in July, finishing ahead of 102-rated Seisai and four lengths ahead of Discoveries, who was making her racecourse debut. On her final juvenile start, Lyon's grey finished second ahead of several decent rivals in the Silver Flash Stakes. She returned to action with a flawless victory in the Patton Stakes at Dundalk.
