2011 Thousand Guineas Prelude Form Guide

September 15th, 2011

The 2011 Thousand Guineas Prelude form guide is going to take an absolute age to work through if you look at all the runners individually with a capacity field plus some handy emergencies on standby which could feature should they get a run as well.

This 1400m Group 3 contest has really attracted the best fillies going around at the moment and the main event Thousand Guineas in a couple of weeks time could be one of the best ever should all these horses continue their form.

While there’s an abundance of quality and in reality a winner could spring from nearly half the field, we’re focussing on a¬† few in particular which we think will be battling it out when the mob descends on the final ¬†furlong.

2011 Thousand Guineas Prelude Form Guide

Celebrity Girl

She’s the only unbeaten horse in the race so that alone defiantly means she’s worth a look. When you dig a little deeper you also notice that her last start over 1100m at Flemington wasn’t just a win, it was a domination by two and a half lengths. All the indications are that she’ll run the trip and from gate two she’ll get on eof the best runs. Mark Kavanagh’s the trainer, Michael Rodd the jockey, Celebrity Girl may well be the winner.

Kneeling

She isn’t unbeaten but she’s pretty close to it after finishing second on debut by a mere nose. To be fair last start she only won by a mere nose as well but still the fact is she’s a good horse and can find the line. The upside to her is the fact both races she’s run at 1200m, that gives her a bit of an edge on Celebrity Girl and John Thompson and James McDonald will be looking to ensure a win. By the way, did we mention it was Hallowelle Belle she beat last start?

Mosheen

Fifth in the Danehill last start behind Sepoy but don’t forget her second behind the same horse in the Golden Slipper! She does need to improve into this race but third up in the prep every chance is she will.

Hallowell Belle

Got to a length of Sepoy last start and you can imagine what odds he’d be at against a field like this. That alone should tell how things are for this filly who just needs a tiny bit more luck. She’s won only one from six but run four seconds and a third, this is her race for Peter Moody and Ben Melham.

Metonymy

She was average last start after promising a heap in her runs before that. Gets to the 1400m this time but who knows whether that’ll be a help or a hindrance. Peter Moody the trainer and Michael Walker the jockey, she’s a hope.

Detours

This girl just can’t run a bad race with two wins and two minors from her four career starts. She’s also run over 1400m before finishing less than two lengths off Stream over this trip last start. Dead track specialist, if she gets it watch out.

Classic Elle

You might not have to worry about this horse because she’s an emergency, but should she get a run get her into your exotics asap. Third in the Crocket Stakes last start after a win at Geelong before that, Tony Vasil is being easy on her but if Olly gets a shot he can win on her.

These are our top picks out of the 2011 Thousand Guineas Prelude Form Guide and why we think they’re deserving of being at the top of the pile.
