Foxplay Tops Thousand Guineas 2016 Betting Odds

In-form Sydney visitor Foxplay is the current favourite in 2016 Thousand Guineas betting to salute in her first Melbourne run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday.

The consistent Foxwedge filly is one of 15 hopefuls lining up in Caulfield Guineas Day Race 7 at 3:50pm (AEDT) on the weekend in the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Saturday marks her first run outside of Sydney and at the mile, but the bookies are tipping Foxplay as the one to beat and she sits top of the Thousand Guineas odds at $3 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

This campaign she has enjoyed back-to-back Randwick wins, most recently in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m), with Hugh Bowman in the saddle.

Bowman continues his association in the Thousand Guineas chasing his second win in the feature after success aboard the fellow Waller-trained Amicus (2014) two years ago.

Foxplay has eased out in in her price to win in Group 1 company on the weekend however despite drawing ideally in barrier five, a gate that has produced two of the past six Thousand Guineas champions.

Hot on her heels in the updated Thousand Guineas markets paying $4.20, backed in from $5, is last weekend’s Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) winner over the distance in Sydney Global Glamour.

She handed co-trainer Gai Waterhouse with a ninth win in that fillies’ feature, Waterhouse chasing her first Thousand Guineas trophy on Saturday.

Kerrin McEvoy jumps aboard Star Witness filly Global Glamour this weekend, the proven miler out to complete the Flight Stakes – Thousand Guineas double for the second time in four years following the success of Guleph (2013) who McEvoy also rode to victory.

Despite the size of the Thousand Guineas field, Foxplay and Global Glamour are the only fillies paying under $10 for the win.

Favourites have saluted for the Thousand Guineas punters five times in the past 10 years, while the last double-figure winner was Yosei ($10 in 2010).

This season the best fancied of the longer priced fillies in the mix including Simon Miller’s multiple Group winning Perth raider Whispering Brook ($12 into $10), last start winner at the track / distance for the Lindsay Park stable Harlow Gold ($10 out to $11) and Missrock ($16 into $13) to be ridden by last year’s winning jockey Dwayne Dunn.

The value could however lie in New Zealander La Luna Rossa ($15) coming off a Thousand Guineas Prelude second, the Henry Dwyer-trained local Leotie ($16) chasing three wins on the trot, Prelude winner Legless Veuve ($17) after the double last achieved by Irish Lights (2009) or even Quezette Stakes winner three back I Am A Star ($19) who all look overs.
