Randwick Guineas 2012 Form Guide & Betting Preview

The headline race in Australia this weekend is Saturday’s 2012 Randwick Guineas in Sydney, and to help our readers back the winner below we have our exclusive Randwick Guineas form guide and betting preview.

Mosheen

Mosheen has the best mile record of any horse in the 2012 Randwick Guineas this Saturday

Highlighting the first race meeting held at the Royal Randwick since its $150 million redevelopment, the $500,000 Group 1 Turnpoint Royal Randwick Guineas (1600m) will take centre stage as Randwick Race 6 at 4:20pm (NSW time) on Saturday.

This year’s Randwick Guineas field features a crack line-up of 16 three-year-olds following the early scratching of #10 Free Wheeling.

With Free Wheeling out, leading Sydney horseman Peter Snowden still has three chances in the race with Ambidexter ($26 bookmaker.com.au), Galah ($31 bookmaker.com.au) and $101 roughie Induna.

The latest Randwick Guineas odds at bookmaker.com.au are led by Ron Leemon’s Golden Rose champion Manawanui at a quote of $3.

It won’t be Manawanui’s for the taking, however, with a genuine rival in last-start Australian Guineas winning filly Mosheen rated a $3.60 chance to take down the favourite.

Throw into the mix another Group 1 winner in Doctor Doom ($34), Manawanui’s last-start conqueror Wild And Proud ($12), their unbeaten stablemate Laser Hawk ($12), Peter Moody’s progressive Moment Of Change ($14) and Group winning Kiwi Ocean Park ($15) and the Randwick Guineas form is a tough one.

That’s why the Races.com.au team has done the hard work for you.

Our expert team of form analysts has gone over the 2012 Royal Randwick field, form and betting statistics and come up with your list of need-to-know facts on the race before you place your bets at bookmaker.com.au.
