Queensland Guineas 2012 – Tips

One of the most anticipated races on the exciting Eagle Farm card tomorrow is the Group 2 2012 Queensland Guineas that will see a group of 16 talented three-year-olds battle it out over 1400 metres.


Mental is the horse to beat in the Queensland Guineas

The talented Peter Snowden-trained Mental is the current short-priced bookmaker.com.au favourite ($2.15) and needs to win tomorrow in order to guarantee qualification into next weekend’s Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap.

Next best in the betting market is fellow Snowden-trained horse Free Wheeling ($4.40) who has also been in terrific form.

The only other chances rated under $10.00 are Boys On Tour ($7.00) and Amah Rock ($8.00) who was last seen running second to Mental in the Fred Best Classic.

One obstacle the entire field will have to overcome is a wet track, with the surface currently rated as slow (7) and expected to worsen before the race jumps tomorrow.

Need some help with your betting selections for the Queensland Guineas? Keep reading as the Races.com.au think tank are here to deliver you our expert tips for tomorrow’s exciting three-year-old event.

The Winner

#2 Mental $2.25

If he wins tomorrow he is Stradbroke bound and he will start as one of the favourites there.

The only thing that can stop this son of Lonhro is bad luck as he has been asbsolutely flying of late and is chasing a third consecutive victory.

By far the best horse in the race and provided he can cope (as he has before) on a heavy track he will finish well clear of his rivals tomorrow and head to the Stradbroke as one of the horses to beat.

The Placings

#3 Free Wheeling bookmaker.com.au and #10 Amah Rock $8.50

Ad Valorem colt Free Wheeling has impressed many in the racing community with his last two starts.

The talented three-year-old won the Listed Hawkesbury Guineas by four lengths ahead of a field that included Landing and Pied a Terre and was most recently less than 1/2 a length behind the lead when fourth in the Group 3 BRC Sprint.

Amah Rock showed enough last start that he can mix it in this sort of company when second to Mental in the Fred Best Classic.

The Fastnet Rock gelding has signalled his potential for the future and boasts an impressive early career record of three wins from eight starts.

The Roughie

#6 Trump $41.00

Struggled last start over 2000 metres in the Rough Habit Plate but drops back to a far more suitable distance.

Trained by Robert Heathcote, the Written Tycoon gelding showed his ability to perform in the wet in the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic when he finished in front of a field that included Brambles and Quintessential.
