There are 11 hopefuls making up the field for this Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m), the set weights classic running as Caulfield Race 8 at 5:05pm (AEST) on the 10-race program.

Leading the latest Thousand Guineas odds at, who are offing a juicy Best Tote or SP + 20% on every single Caulfield Guineas Day race this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, is the Peter Moody-trained Pasadena Girl ($4.40).

Jumping from barrier seven with Hugh Bowman aboard, the Savabeel filly shoots for her first win since becoming an elite level winner in Sydney back on April 18 with a victory in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) over the mile that she gets back up to this weekend.

Hot on Pasadena Girl’s heels in Thousand Guineas betting at $4.60 is Dwayne Dunn’s mount in barrier four, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Stay With Me who beat home Saturday’s top fancy two back in the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley before her sixth in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) last time out on September 26.

So will the top two in the markets prove the ones to beat or does the Thousand Guineas form guide, betting history and statistics reveal value further down the odds from the likes of the Thousand Guineas Prelude winner Miss Gunpowder ($6), in-form Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes champion Badawiya ($6) or the Ciaron Maher-trained local daughter of Myboycharlie Jameka ($9)?
