The 2011 Randwick Guineas will headline Randwick Guineas Day this Saturday March 12, 2011, and Grahame Begg’s Ilovethiscity has cemented himself as hot favourite for the $500,000 race.
The 2011 Randwick Guineas is a 1,600 metre race held at Warwick Farm Racecourse and is open to three-year-olds only.
The Group 1 Randwick Guineas is run under set weight conditions, with all 11 starters carrying the set 56.5 kilograms.
Ilovethiscity has currently settled as $2.50 favourite for the 2011 Randwick Guineas at Luxbet.
The three-year-old colt won his last start in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill on February 26, by an astounding 1.3 lengths.
Ilovethiscity beat both Skilled and Retrieve in his last start; the two horses that are currently second and third favourites at Luxbet for the 2011 Randwick Guineas.
The Magic Albert colt has won three of his ten career starts so far, two of these wins being at Group level.
Ilovethiscity will attempt to win his first Group 1 when he takes on the classy three-year-old Randwick Stakes field.
The colt has drawn ideally in barrier five for the 2011 Randwick Stakes, and will be ridden by jockey Brenton Avdulla, who rode him to victory in the Hobartville Stakes.
Grahame Begg has told of his confidence in Brenton Avdulla’s ability to ride Ilovethiscity to a Randwick Guineas win on Saturday.
“Brenton has done the job and will be staying on for the Guineas,” Begg said.
“…it is hard to take him off if he keeps winning.”
The 2011 Randwick Guineas will run as Race 6 on Saturday and will jump at 4.25 (AEDST).
