It’s the Group 1 Australian Guineas from Flemington, and our expert racing analyst in Melbourne Trevor Lawson runs through each runner in the field.
Flemington Race 7
Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m)
Set Weights, three-year-olds
Prize Money: $1,000,000
#1 Mighty Boss (Price / Walker)
Was unlucky first-up behind Hartnell and then poor last start. On the quick back up, I’m happy to oppose.
Has returned in good form, winning first-up then then being caught three-wide the trip second-up. Third-up looks ideal and can run to its best.
#3 Embellish (Autridge & Richards / Bosson)
Looked every chance at its first Australian run from an inside barrier. Would need to improve significantly to threaten here.
Found this a pretty hard race to pick, but Cliff’s Edge and Grunt are the two to beat for mine.
Value: Bring Me Roses looks the best value in early markets.
