Thousand Guineas 2017 Form Guide & Betting Preview

There may only be eight fillies in this year’s field but there is still a 2017 Thousand Guineas form guide analysis and betting preview on the mile showdown to go over before race day.

We have one of the smallest fields for this season’s Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) in over 30 years, but there is still a level of depth in Caulfield Race 6 at 3:15pm (AEST) on Saturday afternoon.

Three of the fillies in the mix are under double-figures in Thousand Guineas betting at including the hot favourite Alizee ($2.20).

Thousand Guineas favourites have saluted four times in the past 10 years and the top fancy in 2017, the James Cummings-trained Alizee, comes off a lead-up win in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m).

She impressive over the mile in Sydney and will look to do the same getting on her Melbourne leg for the first time this weekend from barrier two with Glyn Schofield retaining the ride on the flying daughter of Sepoy.

If the Flight Stakes form doesn’t stack up this spring, money is coming for Shoals ($5 into $4.20) to improve on her lead-up second in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) at the track a fortnight back and take out the elite level.

The Prelude winner Booker is the other danger drawn the outside barrier in Thousand Guineas field and paying $7 to do the double for the first time since the David Hayes-trained Irish Lights (2009).

Below we take a full look over the Thousand Guineas 2017 form guide, betting preview and race statistics to uncover any value in the event before punters head to for the best weekend odds.
