After an eye catching effort in the Prelude, Shoals has been the best backed runner in early betting with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield this Saturday.
The daughter of Fastnet Rock might have lost her unbeaten run in the process, but her effort in defeat was very good I thought when second to Booker ($6.00 – $7.00). Shoals has been well backed, into $4.00 after opening $4.40 on Tuesday.
Favourite for the race is the Flight Stakes winner Alizee. She’s $2.20 and pretty solid in betting after opening $2.10. There has been a nibble at odds for the Tony McEvoy trained Mintha, who touched $11 from $15 but has eased back to $14.
