Ladbrokes Tip: WA Guineas graduates can back-up in the Kingston Town Classic in the summer

The race offers $500,000 in total prize money and makes a nice lead-up for youngsters looking to take on the older horses in the following months Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) over the extra metres. The latest horses to complete the WA Guineas – Kingston Town Classic double in the same year were Arcadia Queen (2018), Ihtsahymn (2013) and Playing God (2010).

WA Guineas Odds & Betting

WA Guineas Tips

Top WA Guineas tips to consider each summer include looking for local runners with a good record at Ascot that finished in the money at the track last time out in similar company and any runners proven over the mile distance.

Fillies also have a good recent record running top three in the WA Guineas trifecta, including in 2017 when fillies ran first (Perfect Jewel) and third (Art Series) and the win by Arcadia Queen (2018), so taking the better performed females in the race, especially those that ran well in the WA Champion Fillies Classic, is also a good WA Guineas betting tip.

2019 WA Guineas Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider WA Guineas 2019 betting tips and exotic Group 2 Perth racing selections will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for the three-year-olds to back this summer.

WA Guineas Field

The WA Guineas field attracts a quality line-up of mainly local three-year-old staying types looking to bag a Group win in Perth over the summer. Interstate contenders rarely make the trip west to run in the WA Guineas however in 2012 the Peter Snowden-trained Academus (2012) travelled over from Melbourne and won. One of the key lead-ups to the mile clash is the Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) held earlier in the month at the same track.

Recent WA Guineas winners to come off a Fairetha Stakes run include War Saint (4th in 2019), Man Booker (2nd in 2015), Rommel (2nd in 2014) and Ihtsahymn (6th in 2013) who turned the tables on that year’s Fairetha Stakes winner Saint Bro who ran third next start in the Guineas.

Fillies taking on the boys in the WA Guineas field meanwhile often come off a run in the Group 3 WA Champion Fillies Classic (1600m) the week before, a race that produced the 2015 Guineas runner-up Spirit Bird (4th) and the 2017 third placegetter in the Guineas Art Series (1st). In 2018 Arcadia Queen completed the WA Champion Fillies Classic – WA Guineas double.

Graduates out of the WA Guineas field often back-up in the Kingston Town Classic and the double has recently been achieved by Arcadia Queen (2018), Ihtsahymn (2013) and Playing God (2010) who also won the 2011 edition of the Group 1.

W.A. Guineas nominations close the Monday of race week followed by the release of the final field of acceptances and barriers on the Wednesday.
