Will 2013 Australian Guineas Be All Too Hard?

When All Too Hard steps out in the Group 1 2013 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on Saturday, he will start as an incredibly short favourite.

He’s currently at $1.28 and he more than deserves that price.

Australia’s most valuable stallion prospect comes back to his own age group to chase a third consecutive Group 1 win after dominating the older horses in the CF Orr Stakes and the Futurity Stakes.

He’s on a short seven-day turnaround but John Hawkes is one of the most experienced and well-regarded trainers in the business and doesn’t back up horses on a whim.

The major obstacles to All Too Hard’s Australian Guineas hopes appear to be a wide barrier 14 draw and a potential wet track.

Not convinced that All Too Hard Will be too good? Still making up your mind about the Guineas? Keep reading as we have the stats that matter and the pros and cons about the superstar’s chances this weekend.
