Punters Can Believe In I Can Fly In Competitive Looking 1000 Guineas

Sunday 6th May 2018, 3.35pm - 1000 Guineas (Newmarket)

The flat season hits top gear this weekend at Newmarket as HQ plays host to the famous Guineas weekend, and it is the girls taking centre stage on Sunday afternoon. The 1000 Guineas is the early season highlight for the 3YO fillies and we have a predictably tight affair at the head of the betting.

  • Aidan O'Brien has trained the 1000 Guineas winner three times in the last six years

Ballydoyle v Godolphin In The Betting

The two biggest players in the world of flat racing, Ballydoyle and Godolphin, are dominating the betting for this race with two fancied filies each heading to the Rowley Mile.

The Aidan O'Brien first string looks to be Happily who wil be the mount of Ryan Moore and seemingly has plenty of momentum behind her. Last seen flopping badly in the Breeders Cup, she can be forgiven that at the end of a long campaign.

A Group 1 winner at 1m and 7f as a juvenile, Happily is perhaps the best of these on that form but she has not been seen since that Del Mar flop which would be a worry at 11/4 with William Hill.

I Can Fly (7/1) is a fascinating 2nd string for O'Brien and can't be ruled out of running a big race. Form last season was only ordinary and was only 3rd when favourite at Leopardstown last month but she is highly unexposed and the benefit of a run this term has to be a consideration.

Godolphin have started the season strong and have two genuine threats here as they look to start their classic campaign off with a bang. Soliloquy (6/1) will be the mount of William Buick and although she needs to improve, her win Group 3 on the Rowley Mile last month does give her a course and fitness edge.

James Doyle has been flying over the past few weeks, he will be on Wild Illusion this weekend and she could run a massive race. A Group 1 winner last term at Chantilly, there is clearly plenty of talent under the bonnet of the Charlie Appleby filly and could be an EW player at 9/1 with Coral.

Laurens (9/1) is a Group 1 winner of course and distance for Karl Burke and as such has to be respected, whilst Dan's Dream (14/1) does have stamina questions to answer but has improved to win both starts this term for Mick Cannon.

Conclusion

The first classics of the season are always tough for punters as we try to guess how much some of these horses have improved over the winter. The vibes surrounding Happily are extremely positive but Aidan O'Brien could have the answer elsewhere with I Can Fly.

Unexposed and lightly raced, she does have a run under her belt in 2018 and can take a big step forward this weekend.
