Which Horse Will Win The Randwick Guineas

The best way to pick who will win the Randwick Guineas is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Three By Three – Look for the three year olds that have been placing in the top three in their last three races.
  • Failing Fillies – The fairer sex has a poor record in this race, when compared to colts and geldings.
  • Unbound By Barriers – Over the long term, wide barriers have not proved much of a disadvantage to horses running in this race.
