2024 Port Adelaide Guineas Runner by Runner

1. Air Assault (1)

Comes off back-to-back wins over 1600m at Morphettville where he won by decent margins. One of the major hopes.

2. Bold Soul (4)

Back from a let-up and aiming for 4 consecutive wins after wins at Flemington, Launceston and Hobart. Solid claims.

3. Warmonger (3)

Has 2 wins and a place from his 5 starts. Resumed for 6th over 1600m at Pakenham and won second-up last time in. Place chance.

4. Rise At Dawn (7)

Won 2 in a row before 6 lengths 10th in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes over 2040m at Moonee Valley on 23rd March (won by Antrim Coast). returns to an easier race and a shorter trip. Place chance.

5. Shinjuku (12)

Has won 2 of 3 starts this campaign. Not the worst.

6. Warialda Warrior (2)

Won over 1600m at Dubbo last start but this is much harder.

7. Under The Cone (13)

Won a BM 72 over 1600m at Morphttville last start. Not keen.

8. On The Scent (10)

Won a maiden at Murray Bridge then won his next start over 1900m at Oakbank. Sneaky place chance.

9. Gawnski (6)

Comes off a maiden win at Mornington. Looking to others.

10. Voracious (9)

Won a maiden at Pakenham and having his first city race. Unlikely.

11. Artful Tawny (8)

12. The Last Dance (11)

Won his maiden at Murray Bridge on 3rd April. Prefer others.

13. Saban (5)

Has had 2 starts. Ran 2nd at Sandown Lakeside on 27th March. Still a maiden and this is too strong.
