2011 Randwick Guineas Final Field – Warwick Farm

March 9th, 2011

The Final Field for the 2011 Randwick Guineas or’ Turnpoint Guineas’  has been released and the $500,000 in prize money is certainly going to have to be earned at Warwick farm this Saturday March 12.

An absolute smorgasbord of talent will be on offer with the 11 starters having already had a number of runs so far on this Autumn campaign.

Leading the way as the best rated runner will be Ilovethiscity, fresh off his tremendous win in the Hobartville Stakes where he accounted for many of the same horses which will line up against him in the 2011 Randwick Guineas.

One of those horses will be the Hobartville Stakes runner up Retrieve, one of the most consistent horses racing in Australia today.

Another big threat is Skilled which beat Ilovethiscity across the line two starts back in the Royal Sovereign and placed third in the Hobartville Stakes.

Others include  Pressday and Masquerader which are both desperate to find some form part way into a so far underwhelming Autumn season.

Not to be forgotten is the underrated Top Drop as well as the ever present Light Brigade which likes to get out quickly and with a bit of non-secular intervention could feature in the money.

A full preview isn’t far away so stay tuned for our picks to come later in the week.

One thing you won’t have to wait for though is access to the best odds through the Tabcorp owned Luxbet.

In fact you don’t even need to wait for your next pay cheque because at Luxbet today they’ll match your initial deposit with a free bet!
