2019 THOUSAND GUINEAS – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Stablemates Acting and I Am Eloquent may control the pace. Doesn't look like being run at a breakneck speed. LYRE (1) was playing catch up in the Prelude but hummed home there over 1400m and looks to be back on track now. Shapes as though the mile will suit and she can add another Group 1 to her mantle without surprising.

FLIT (3) had no luck at all in that Prelude and should have plenty more to offer. Mile looks no concern for her and clear running at the right time will see her rattling into the finish.

EMERALDS (10) was big odds in the Tea Rose but her effort was terrific in a really strong contest and this will prove no tougher. TENLEY (2) and MISSILE MANTRA (7) have been showing glimpses.
