2018 THOUSAND GUINEAS – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Smart Melody lands on pace from barrier two and Fiesta should hold her spot from three. From wider out the likes of Anjana and Mirette may look to press on.

EL DORADO DREAMING ran a really good race first up in the Prelude here and she can come on for that outing and give this a mighty shake. Looks a good chance of pegging back her talented stablemate SMART MELODY who must be some query at the mile but draws to get a soft run. If she can settle in the first few and get a gentle run her speed could prove decisive.

FIESTA comes down from Sydney where she has been racing consistently well in all the right races. She will measure up. Qafila could be a knockout hope at odds.

Schweppes Thousand Guineas 3F , 1600m
Race Synopsis: Unbeaten in four starts since resuming for the Darren Weir stable, Amphitrite advanced from winning a 3yo maiden (1200m) at Sale on September 9 to taking out this Group 1 feature five weeks later. She settled in last place from her outside barrier (15) behind a quick pace. Improved (deep) rounding the home turn and then came with a strong late bid to grab victory in the last few strides. The $101 outsider Fundamentalist raced in fourth place, on the rails, got into clear running at the 200m, hit to front at the 100m only to be caught on the post for second, beaten a head. Seabrook settled back in 12th place, got between runners on turning for home and finished nicely to take third just in advance of Anjana was handy most of the way and held on well for (1.7 lengths) fourth with Thrillster (2 lengths) third after working outside leader for fifth while the favourite Smart Melody weakening for (2.4 lengths) seventh after a demanding trip in the lead.
