Helmet Deserving Favourite – 2012 Australian Guineas

Despite a setback in Helmet’s first-up effort in the CS Hayes Stakes two weeks ago, the outstanding colt remains the clear favourite ahead of tomorrow’s 2012 Australian Guineas at Flemington.

If the Peter Snowden trained three-year-old can score victory tomorrow, he will join Mahogany (1993-94) and become the second horse in history to win the Caulfield Guineas – Australian Guineas double.

The elite level Group 1 race will be held over 1600 metres and this should suit the Caulfield Guineas champion.

Helmet has had two starts at the distance and has done the business on both occasions, holding him in good stead for tomorrow’s $750,000 race.

In perhaps a sign of cautious punters following the fifth-place-effort in the CS Hayes Stakes, the colt is now paying $3.20 after starting at $3.00 at Luxbet when the final field was released on Wednesday.
