The 2000 Guineas is one of the biggest races in the flat racing calendar, with the winner taking home a staggering £250,000. This 1-mile-long race is open to both fillies and colts that are three years old, but it is the latter that usually dominate the entries for this huge race. This is a Group 1 race, which means that only the best sprinters can enter, which means that there will be plenty of pedigree on show. Below we are going to provide you with some preview and tips as to who we think will go on to win the race.

When Will the 2000 Guineas Take Place?

The 2022 version of the 2000 Guineas will be run on Saturday 30th April at 15:40 pm. There will be other entertaining races taking place before and after this one, so be sure to check these out too since they can offer some quality betting opportunities.

If you are going to be betting on this race, then you should keep a look out for horses that have been trained by Aiden O'Brien as he has won this race five times out of the last 10 with three different jockeys. All in all, he has been victorious in this race a staggering 10 times, making him the leading trainer for this prestigious race.

2000 Guineas: Our Betting Tips

There is a maximum of 25 runners in the 2000 Guineas, and there is a spot in history for the winner. Additionally, the winners of this race usually go on to play an important role in creating successful sprinters for the future as they are sent to breed. Top quality horses that have won this race in the past and have been sent to breed so that their genes are passed on include the likes of Frankel, Camelot, Sea the Stars, and Galileo Gold.

The flat season well and truly got underway at the start of April, and William Buick and Charlie Appleby are flying already with a load of winners. This lethal combo tops the market with Coroebus and Native Trail being the two favourites to win the 2000 Guineas. The top betting sites such as Betway, Coral, and Ladbrokes have Native Trail at odds of 2.25 to win, while they have Coroebus at odds of 4.50 to be victorious.

It is no surprise that Native Trail is the favourite to win this big race since he kicked off his flat racing season with a Group 3 win at Newmarket with Buick on his back. He also finished last season on a high with an impressive Group 1 win over Dubawi Legend, who was the clear favourite for the race. By beating a horse with such pedigree, he showed the horse racing world that he means business.

Dubawi Legend will be taking part in this year's 2000 Guineas, but the bookmakers do not have him as one of the favourites. However, it is never wise to rule out a horse with such pedigree and, if you are the type of person that likes to place an each-way bet, then perhaps you should consider putting an each-way wager on Dubawi Legend. The likes of Bet365 and 888sport have given him odds of 15.00 to win the race.

O'Brien will have a couple of horses in this race, as usual, but the one that he is looking forward to watching in action the most is Luxembourg. This horse is an out and out sprinter, and is yet to be beaten in a race that he has run in. He definitely has a good chance of keeping that record intact in this year's 2000 Guineas, and you can back him to do so at odds of 5.50.

O'Brien will also have Point Lonsdale running in this race, and he has warned that this colt should not be overlooked by the punters. You can never go wrong by backing a horse that has been trained by O'Brien, and if you want to put your money on Point Lonsdale to win this race, then top betting sites such as Betway, William Hill, and Coral are offering odds of 11.00.

One other horse that looks like he means business this season is Perfect Power, who is trained by Richard Fahey. He recently won the Group 3 Greenham Stakes at Newbury, and he is in perfect racing shape heading towards the 2000 Guineas. If he runs to the best of his ability on the day, then it will not be a surprise to anyone if he goes on and wins the race. If you want to back him to win, the bookies such as BoyleSports, BetFred, and Ladbrokes are offering odds of 11.00 for him to win.

Who Would We Put Our Money on?

So, as we have shown above, there are a number of horses that have the potential to go on and win this prestigious race. We could chicken out and not provide you with the one horse that we think will win, but that is not in our nature. If we were to put our own money on a horse in this race, which we might easily do, then we would be really tempted to put it on Luxembourg. Yes, Native Trail is the clear favourite for this race, but the odds are a bit low, and we are always on the lookout for value. Odds of 5.50 for Luxembourg and the fact that he is trained by O'Brien is something that we cannot move away from.
