Thousand Guineas 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Cracking race. Skybird is loaded with upside and will be hard to beat. Coeur Volante has plenty of class and just needs luck from the barrier. Joliestar should get the gun run from the barrier. Arctic Glamour is racing in good fashion. Kimochi deserves a win while Quickster has solid form and nice upside.

Thousand Guineas 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Kimochi  (4)

Needs a win this prep and has been super consistent. Needs to find a length or two but absolutely good enough to take this out.

2. Coeur Volante (5)

Enormous win last start and has a stack of upside. Well placed in this and drawn better. Hard to beat and the very in form Shinn steers.

3. Skybird (2)

Hard to knock. Continues to win and should have every chance from the barrier. This race suits.

4. Arctic Glamour (7)

Maps well to get a tow into the race and looks supremely placed here. Hard to hold out in this winnable affair and has very large claims.

5. Carina Queen (8)

Maps to have a tricky time of it but gets the right race and the in form jockey. Hard to beat in this.

6. Joliestar (1)

Maps to do no work and should give this field a shake. Hard to beat from the plum draw.

7. Zourion (11)

This race suits and is having a great prep. Goes in the mix.

8. Vivy Air (13)

Prefer others.

9. Apache Song (9)

This looks too tough.

10. Enna’s Dream (6)

Can’t have.

11. Ersa (12)

Prefer others.

12. Vibrant Sun (10)

Can’t have.

13. Quickster (3)

Nice map and this race is within reach. Can give this a shake and is likeable odds.
