Three of the last six winners have had starting prices inside $10, while all of them have been inside $15, except for Yearning in 2021. The race doesn’t often have big fields, which means it can be slightly easier for punters to find a winner.

When looking at a broader period of time, favourites have fared quite well at the Thousand Guineas over the years, with seven favourites winning the race between 2006 and 2021. However, in that same period of time five winners of the Thousand Guineas started at double-figure odds, including Yosei ($11 in 2010), Commanding Jewel ($10 in 2012), Aloisia ($14 in 2017), Amphitrite ($13 in 2018) and Yearning ($28 in 2021).

What is the best lead up races for the Thousand Guineas?

Like any race, the form and success of a horse entering the Thousand Guineas is important. When looking at the previous winners of the Thousand Guineas, six winners of the race  between 2012 and 2020 have finished third or better in their final lead-up event.

More specifically, six of the winners of the Thousand Guineas since 2008 have entered the meeting after competing in their last start at the Jim Moloney Stakes at Caulfield, which was true again in 2021 with Yearning. In fact, the 2021 Jim Moloney Stakes saw Yearning finish second and Elusive Express win, with those two filling the quinella again in the Thousand Guineas, with Yearning able to turn the tables.

Thousand Guineas Odds 2022

As the Thousand Guineas is Victoria’s premier mile race for three-year-old fillies, bookies look to release odds for the race several months prior to the field being set. All horses that are likely to run in the upcoming Thousand Guineas are given odds by bookmakers so punters can participate in what is known as futures betting.

Once the bookies release the 2022 Thousand Guineas odds, they will obviously fluctuate frequently in the lead up to the race, especially when we have a better idea of which horses will be targeting the race and their form leading into the race.

Punting early on these markets can find you a favourite at prices of $10 or more, which will retain you a much higher return on investment. However, there is increased risk with doing this and you should be well aware.

Depending on when you place a futures bet on the 2022 Thousand Guineas, your horse may not even run but you won’t get your money back, occurring when the market is ‘All-In’ or closer to the starting date. If you are betting when it says ‘Before Noms’, you have the security of receiving your money back if your horse doesn’t run.
