Randwick Guineas 2018 Form Guide & Betting Preview

Due to run as Randwick Race 7 at 4:20pm (AEDT), this year’s Group 1 $1 million Randwick Guineas (1600m) field features 14 young hopefuls with the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au led by Kementari.

The easing $2.70 favourite in Randwick Guineas betting is after his third win on the trot this campaign, the James Cummings-trained Lonhro colt last seen taking out the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on February 24.

He has winning form at Randwick and in his only other 1600m start finished a close second to Mighty Boss in Melbourne’s Group 1 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas last October so should have no worries over the extra distance on Saturday in Sydney.

Four other runners in the Randwick Guineas field join the favourite Kementari under $10 for the win including the Chris Waller-trained Hobartville Stakes third placed grey D’Argento ($4.80) despite his outside barrier 14 of 14 draw.

To help uncover the value in the markets below is a comprehensive Randwick Guineas 2018 Form Guide, betting history and statistical data on the mile classic.
