Australian Guineas 2013 – Betting Update And Tips

As the only Group 1 race of the weekend, the $500,000 2013 Australian Guineas (1600m) is hotly anticipated.

A capacity field of 16 three-year-olds will line up to contest the Flemington feature, with glamour colt All Too Hard heading the market at $1.28.

The superstar will chase a third straight Group 1 win and no runner comes close to him in betting.

Second favourite is last year’s Golden Rose runner-up Albrecht ($17) while Michael Kent-trained pair Philippi ($21) and High Shot ($21) share the third line of betting.

Others in the Australian Guineas market include in-form colt Ajeeb ($26), CS Hayes Stakes winner Sheer Talent ($26) and Victoria Derby fourth Hvasstan ($31).

The Winner

#1 All Too Hard $1.28

Should be simply too good.

He’s Australia’s most valuable stallion prospect for a reason and heads into Saturday chasing a third straight Group 1 win.

Drops back from dominating the older horses to take on his own age group and nothing in the race appears to have anywhere close to his ability.

John Hawkes only backs up horses when they in top shape so that isn’t a concern and he should be good enough even if he gets caught in an awkward position from barrier 14.

The Placings

#9 Force Command $41 and #11 Hosting $31

Greg Eurell’s pair of colts have been in consistent form so far this autumn and there’s no reason they can’t continue that here.

The pair finished second and third respectively in both the Listed Manfred Stakes and the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes and with fitness on their side they should be ripe for this third-up run.

Facing similar gallopers to who they have come up against in past two starts.
