2010 Thousand Guineas Odds Update & Betting Tips

Yesterday the Races.com.au team reported on the 2010 Thousand Guineas Betting Odds that opened at our preferred online bookmaker Sportsbet in anticipation of the $500,000 fillies showdown at Caulfield on Wednesday.

No. 1 More Strawberries opened as the hot favourite and firmed right into $3.70 to win the 2010 Thousand Guineas.

There has since been even more money come in for this consistent Gai Waterhouse-trained runner, More Strawberries now at $3.40 with punters loving her form and ideal barrier three draw.

Punters that are sticking with More Strawberries will take confidence looking at the recent Thousand Guineas results as three of the past four favourites have been successful.

The other Thousand Guineas market mover is No. 11 Brazilian Pulse, Michael Moroney’s in-form filly shortening in from $9 to $8.50 at Ladbrokes.com.au overnight.

In recent years two of the past four Thousand Guineas winners were coming off a second in the Edward Manifold Stakes, Miss Finland (2006) and Serious Speed (2007), so there is merit to the money coming in for Brazilian Pulse here as she finished second to Sistine Angel in the Edward Manifold last start.

Races.com.au 2010 Thousand Guineas Early Betting Tips

  • Best Chance to Cause an Upset: #3 Sistine Angel at $5.50 Ladbrokes.com.au
  • Best Place Bets: #10 Pinker Pinker and #6 Divorces Ladbrokes.com.au
  • Best Trifecta Picks: #1 More Strawberries, #3 Sistine Angel and #10 Pinker Pinker Ladbrokes.com.au

All the attention may be focused on More Strawberries, tipsters confident she can emulate star stablemate More Joyous and win their Melbourne race debut, but if you are seeking an upset No. 3 Sistine Angel could be it.

Andrew Nobelt’s Test Rossa filly Sistine Angel opened as the $5.50 second favourite in the Thousand Guineas odds, the punters yet to get behind her or place any significant wagers on her after she drew awkwardly with barrier 11.

With More Strawberries on the inside and full of raw ability, bettors have been sceptical to back Sistine Angel out wide.

Looking at her spring form, however, Sistine Angel was able to win the Edward Manifold Stakes from a horror barrier 15 draw using her speed to come from well back to get home well.

Our top pick to Place or put into a Trifecta with the favourites for the Thousand Guineas is No. 10 Pinker Pinker.

Currently at $17 to win, the Greg Eurell-trained Pinker Pinker finished sixth and fifth respectively in the Thousand Prelude and Edward Manifold from barrier eight.

But she hit the line hard both times after displaying a solid turn of foot to make a late charge on the leaders and is drawn better with barrier four for Wednesday.

Another excellent Place chance is No. 6 Divorces.

The Peter Snowden-trained Divorces has been abandoned by the punters who aren’t taking her at $7 after she failed in the Edward Manifold last start.

Divorces previously won the Thousand Guineas Prelude in fine style but missed the start and got caught in traffic finishing a disappointing 11th in the Edward Manifold.

However, if she jumps better from barrier seven on Wednesday and returns to form Divorces will be right up there.
