Thousand Guineas betting odds

With a purse of A$500,000 available, it’s little surprise that The Thousand Guineas is an attractive horse race which attracts interest from all over the world. The 2020 Thousand Guineas is scheduled to take place on 10 October, with bet365 the first bookmaker to release the latest prices and the betting market had a wide open look to it with a month before the runners compete at Caulfield Racecourse.

Agreeable looks set to be among the favourites for The Thousand Guineas 2020, with Anthony & Sam Freeman having high hopes for a three-year-old who has enjoyed two outings to date and the most recent performance took place in the Beck Probuild Quezette Stakes when the runner finished in fourth place.

Previously to this, the filly obliged in the Bet365 Odds Drift Protector 2yo Fillies Maiden Plate at Geelong, although the racecard indicates that this filly is lightly-raced and the plain truth is that there’s likely to be at least one horse who could have the beating of her.

Instant Celebrity looks to have decent enough credentials and the Schweppes Oaklands Plate saw her land the spoils in what was a listed race, with the horse winning by nearly a length over seven furlongs on good ground.

The Thousand Guineas Race and History

The Thousand Guineas is run over 1,600 metres and it’s for three-year-old fillies who are able to qualify before the actual race, with the racecard revealing that the majority of runners don’t have a huge amount of experience.

Nevertheless, there’s a nice pot available for the winning connections and the Thousand Guineas has been in operation since 1946. This is a race which traditionally takes place on the first or second day of the Melbourne Racing Club Spring Carnival, with this race having been a Group 1 encounter since 1979 in the Australian racecard calendar.

Some of the recent Thousand Guineas winners include Flit, Global Glamour and Stay With Me, although there are always different winners due to the horses needing to be three-year-old fillies in order to compete.
