The Thousand Guineas form guide features all the info punters need to place a well-informed wager on the mile showdown including the saddlecloth number, barrier, trainer and jockey of all the fillies in the field. Looking for a runner drawn between barriers 4 – 6 is a good tip as these gates have produced the most winners in recent years, while just one winner has jumped from double digits in the past decade with Serious Speed (10 in 2007). Since 2008 three last start winners have gone on to win the Thousand Guineas including Guelph (2013) who took out the Flight Stakes – Thousand Guineas double.
