2000 Guineas Free Tips and Betting Trends

2000 Guineas Free Tips and Betting Trends

The Qipco-sponsored 2,000 Guineas is a race run over 1m and is the first of the five English Classics to be run each season – with the 1,000 Guineas run the following day. Both races are staged at Newmarket racecourse, and for 3 year-olds only, the race is also seen as an early-season guide to that year’s Epsom Derby – the last horses to win both races in the same season were Sea The Stars (2009) and Camelot (2012).

We take a look back at past winners and highlight the key trends and stats ahead of the 2020 renewal – this year run on Saturday 2nd May 2020

Did you know? 12 of the last 18 2,000 Guineas winners came from the top 3 in the betting, while the powerful Aidan O’Brien yard have won 4 of the last 5 runnings.
