2021 Australian Guineas Best Bets

Crosshaven was plain when resuming in the CF Orr Stakes, but will obviously enjoy getting back to his age group here. He won a number of three-year-old races during the spring but I question the strength of this three-year-old crop, he may not have beaten much. Not keen to dive into the $8.00 about him at the moment.

Wait and see on Ole Kirk – he’s running in the 2021 Futurity Stakes and may or may not head to the 2021 Australian Guineas depending on his performance.

I’d look to runners like Cambourne, Cherry Tortoni, and Embolism who weren’t quite ready in the spring, but have come back as more mature autumn three-year-olds. They’re all at big odds and offer more value than the market leaders.

The wildcard is Kiwi Brando, who is set to run in the CS Hayes Stakes first up, and may be a class above.
