2015 Australian Guineas Betting Tips

Rommel, the winner of last week’s Group 3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m), was removed from the race after filling was detected in his near fetlock, while Rod’s Opinion, the outsider of the field at $201, was withdrawn after suffering a bout of colic. The join Testashadow, who was scratched by trainer Gary Portelli yesterday after he drew the outside gate.

Kermadec opened the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au as the $3.70 favourite and his price has continued to shorten following support from punters. The three-year-old colt is currently paying $3.40.

There are just three more single figure hopefuls in the 2015 Australian Guineas betting, which means punters have the chance to back a lucrative winner at long odds. Check out our betting tips for the race below.


#2 Petrology ($10)

We’re backing all double figure hopefuls in our Australian Guineas betting tips, starting off with David Hayes & Tom Dabernig’s Petrology. The three-year-old colt will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one with Nicholas Hall to ride and is already a winner over the track and distance after scoring the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) back in November; it was a completely dominant display from the colt. Petrology resumed with a runner-up finish in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1300m) before running midfield in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) three weeks ago. He will enjoy the increase in distance to a mile and could break through to single figures before the race is run.


#15 Fontein Ruby ($13)

Robert Smerdon’s Fontein Ruby is one of just two fillies running in the Australian Guineas, a race historically dominated by males. Two fillies have broken through to win the race in the past 30 years – Mosheen (2012) and Shamrocker (2011) – and Fontein Ruby could soon join that list. The filly has won over the track and distance of the race once, winning the Group 2 Manfred Stakes (1600m) in October last year. The filly has placed in her two starts this campaign, the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m), both of which she lost by one length or less. The filly will be ridden by Chad Schofield and jump from barrier two, which has brought home the most winners since 1983.


#3 Admiral ($14)

Rounding out our Australian Guineas tips is the Tasmanian-based gelding Admiral, offering punters some great value at $14 to win or $4.30 to place. The Barry Campbell-trained three-year-old has placed in all 12 of his career starts, nine of which he impressively won. Admiral stepped up to black-type racing for the first time in January, winning the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600) by three lengths. He returned to a mile the following month, beating home cult favourite The Cleaner in the Listed George Adams Plate (1600m). The colt will enjoy a start from barrier five with Dwayne Dunn to ride in his first mainland appearance.

If you want to take a gamble on any of our lucratively-priced 2015 Australian Guineas runners, head on over to Ladbrokes.com.au. New customers will enjoy up to $250 in a bonus match on their first bets.
