1000 Guineas Horse Racing Betting
The meeting will no longer feature the historic Newmarket
Challenge Whip which has been moved from the old Friday
fixture to October 15.
Cuth Ascot new track A right handed triangular track:
quite a stiff course with an uphill finish.
However in 2005/06 part of the track was fundamentally
redesigned. The straight course was levelled and new
drainage installed. Times from the first meeting in 2006
indicate the straight track is now much quicker and easier.
The undulations and uphill climb have been largely
eliminated. All races up to 1m are run on the straight track
(except the old round mile).
The round mile and 10/12 furlongs and upwards are
The run in is short, only 2 and a half furlongs, and it is
not a good track for coming with a late run over middle
Previously a testing track when the ground was soft.
Draw: Previously in big fields on the straight course, low
numbers had an advantage.
On the round course there was little advantage but on soft
ground high numbers may have had a slight edgeWe can now guarantee the strongest ever Guineas Festival

It will then replace the Newmarket Challenge Cup, which
like the Whip, was a race that carried no prize money and
was restricted to horses owned by members of the Jockey
Club and the Jockey Club Rooms.
"We did something similar last year when we reduced
the Cambridgeshire Meeting from four to three days which
dramatically improved its overall quality," said Newmarket's
clerk of the course, Michael Prosser.
"We have also made major improvements to the July
Meeting race programme in the last two seasons.
"We can now guarantee the strongest ever Guineas Festival
this May, with five Group races, two Listed races and a
host of other high-class contests." i've been
through them all again and again and nothing is cast iron
sure stayer up the hill a few look like they might, but
every one that's won at stiff tracks as won at easy tracks
and you've got the words kept on.
lets presume they all track over and the others are
thereabouts ,some on here someone posted yesterday that
quite a few high numbers got placings - so at the 2f pole
there re all close together and no one will fully go up the
hill, apart from one ,he's 3rd top speed, got a low weight
and got his top speed with top weight in a race full of
winners after ,its been its target all year and things have
been quiet - he even ran on up the hill in victoria cup only
beat 5l ,i don't think he could do it but if hes there hes
sure to run on - and this is the best he's now 110/1 for 3rd
top speed ,sure to be running on - he's run in all the big
hops - so could -might he - dare we think it - but at 110/1
it doesn't matter - ZOMERLUST - why his he so big - your
guaranteed to be finishing like a train and they re all
stopping it might just happen, stranger things have., also
the draw doesn't matter as much the 5f were a lot closer
than the hunt cup - its got to be worth a bet at that price
