2021 Australian Guineas Betting Odds at Flemington racecourse

Saturday, 27 February 2021

The Australian Guineas is one of the biggest races on the Australian horse racing calendar, with the race having been in operation since 1986 and this is a race for three-year-old horses where the winner can expect to scoop a pot of roughly A$1,000,000.

The legendary Alligator Blood was the 2020 winner of the Australian Guineas and the bookies are now creating a betting market for the 2021 renewal, with the runners competing over a mile and it’s a race which takes centre stage when it comes to the Victorian Racing Club Autumn Racing Carnival.

Can Ole Kirk Become the Latest Australian Guineas Winner?

Whether you compare horse racing odds at bet365 or Unibet, you will find that Ole Kirk has been installed at the head of the betting market to win the 2021 Australian Guineas, with the horse being trained by Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes.

The three-year-old has plenty of experience under his belt after running several times as a two-year-old and there was a notable victory when the horse was last seen in action, with the horse winning the Neds Caulfield Guineas on 10 October.

This was a one-mile success on good ground and the horse pleased punters who backed the runner as a 16/5 joint-favourite, with jockey Tommy Berry previously steering the runner to success in the De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose at Rosehill.

Who Are the Other Big Contenders to Win Australian Guineas?

North Pacific has been mentioned as a viable Australian Guineas winner and we should note that the three-year-old was only beaten by a head when going up against race favourite Ole Kirk last time out, with the horse running a blinder when finishing second in the De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose.

Young Werther is a New Zealand raider that could also catch the eye of punters, with Danny O’Brien having saddled the horse to impressive performances at Flemington Racecourse, with the horse having finished second in the Kirkland Lake Gold Super Impose Stakes.

The horse then pitched up as the market betting favourite in the AAMI Victoria Derby, although he only managed to land third place after a narrow finish and perhaps he will be luckier in the Guineas this time around.
