Caulfield Race 8: Thousand Guineas 1600m

9/10/2015: This looks a really skinny race to me with three solid chances, if you include Pasadena Girl; see my racemap worry. It was impossible not to be impressed with Badawiya’s win last Saturday because when she kicked, she kicked like a good horse. She will get back but I am prepared to take the chance around the $4 mark or better at the track she is trained on. Miss Gunpowder was powerful in her all the way win in the Thousand Guineas Prelude and being by Pendragon (won the Gloaming Stakes, Norman Robinson Stakes 1800-2000m) I don’t believe distance is an issue and she is an excellent saver. Pasadena Girl is a handicapping special if you blindly follow the handicappers ratings as she is rated at 6kg better than her nearest rival. However, life isn't that easy for the punter and I have pace concerns but just for this run I have her in as a chance.

RACEMAPThousand Guineas 1600m
Front Runners (5) Take Pride, (11) Miss Gunpowder.
On Pacers (1) Payroll, (2) Super Cash, (6) Alaskan Rose.
Mid Fielders (4) Stay With Me, (9) Jameka, (10) Badawiya.
Get Back (3) Sagaronne, (7) Pasadena Girl, (8) Don't Doubt Marley.
PACE COMMENTS I have Take Pride leading without much trouble and Miss Gunpowder either taking a sit a length or so off the pace or eyeballing the leader. The latter isn't usually C Williams style of riding but perhaps he will want to pressure the leader. This has the on pacers going well enough and the mid fielders too but I must admit to being worried about Pasadena Girl's chances. She will be a fair way back early and I want a good price about her around the $5.00 mark as a starting point.
