Fourteen hopefuls line-up in this season’s Group 1 $1 million Randwick Guineas (1600m) and the dominant favourite at $2.70 for the win is the in-form Kementari for Godolphin.

Out to be the first favourite to salute since Ilovethiscity (2011), the Lonhro colt chases a hat-trick of wins and comes off a one length Rosehill success in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m).

Drawn gate four with flying jockey Glyn Schofield in the saddle, the deserving top fancy ticks plenty of boxes and looks the horse to beat again stepping up to a mile for the first time since his Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas second in the spring.

A further four runners are under double-figures in the current Randwick Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au including Chris Waller’s Hobartville third placed So You Think colt D’Argento ($4.80) with the outside barrier to overcome and the Darren Weir-trained market mover Peaceful State backed in from $11 to $8 to handle the interstate trip on the seven day back-up after a second in last Saturday’s Australian Guineas.

Earlier we published a comprehensive Randwick Guineas 2018 Form Guide & Betting Preview, our below tips based on the race facts and stats uncovered there.

Our 2018 Randwick Guineas Trifecta Tip is #7 Peaceful State from #3 Kementari and #4 Age Of Fire

1st

#7 Peaceful State ($8)

Weir is a master trainer who barley makes a bad call when it comes to the preparation of his Group 1 performers and think his decision to back-up this progressive Animal Kingdom colt on successive Saturday in dual states could prove the right one. The last Randwick Guineas winner to back-up off the Australian Guineas in Flemington was the filly Mosheen (2012) who did the double. Peaceful State was brave in defeat running second to grunt and now boasts two seconds from as many runs over the mile. The money is coming for him and he has upside. Can upset.

2nd

#3 Kementari ($2.70)

Favourites don’t have a great recent record in the race, but there are plenty of boxes ticked by this year’s top fancy. He is out to do the Hobartville Stakes – Randwick Guineas double for the first time since Hallowed Crown (2015) and gets the run of the race from barrier four. Proven at the track and should be better stepping up to a mile, which he ran second to Mighty Boss over in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in the spring. Presents fit, will be up on the pace and is a genuine hope for favourite backers.

3rd

#4 Age Of Fire ($21)

Think there is value galore to be had in the placings with plenty of longer-priced hopefuls presenting with claims including Siege Of Quebec ($34) and this Kiwi visitor. Has work to do from out in barrier 13, but over a mile that shouldn’t be too much of an issue for the Stephen Autridge & Jamie Richards-trained Fastnet Rock colt. If the track keeps in the Soft-rating, this New Zealander will thrive (5:3-1-1). He’s a Group 1 winner over the distance back across the Tasman this time in and placed second in his other 1600m run in November’s NZ 2000 Guineas. Can place at a price.
