Before Betting On Irish 1,000 Guineas

The Classic action continues in Ireland this weekend, as Sunday will see the G1 1,000 Guineas staged. This race is for fillies aged three, and a total distance of a mile will be covered. Horses have traditionally done well in this race after contesting the 1,000 Guineas, with four previous winners tasting success in both. It is also a key trial for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Aidan O’Brien has an excellent record in the race, and he will have a strong hand to continue that dominant sequence. Opera Singer appears to be his leading filly in the race after winning three from five starts as a juvenile. She is also unbeaten over a mile, most recently landing a French Group One at the start of October.

Porta Fortuna will be hard to ignore following her comeback effort when taking second in the G1 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket. She ran a stormer at the Breeders’ Cup last year to take second, and she has won four from eight career starts.

Fallen Angel is a fascinating raider for Karl Burke this weekend, with the three-year-old having disappointed over a mile in the 1,000 Guineas when eighth. Things didn’t go to plan on that day, but she remains of huge interest having already won impressive over seven furlongs at the Curragh last season.

Opera Singer has strong claims on her return, but the fitness edge could mean that the ultra-consistent Porta Fortuna could take advantage. A Lila Rolla also isn’t discounted after beating Opera Singer last season, before returning with a narrow success over Kitty Rose on unfavorable ground.
