Sandown Guineas Form Guide 2011

November 10th, 2011

The 2011 Sandown Guineas form guide will take a fair while to get through with a capacity field of 16 with a huge depth of quality.

In fact in terms of current form just about every runner has a case making your job pretty tricky this Saturday at Sandown.

Of the 16 runners five are last start winners, five more finished inside in the top three and a further three run fourth.

That means only three horses in the entire field weren’t competitive at their last start.

Sure there’s a discrepancy in grade and the 1600m is a bit of a query but the fact is these horses are fit and ready to go to make the 2011 Sandown Guineas a genuine feature event.

2011 Sandown Guineas Form Guide


Has won four in a row including three this preparation. Odds on favourite last time out but only just got there, big chance again but no certainty.


Has been as consistent as any since making his debut, in fact from seven starts he’s yet to miss a place including three victories.

Grand Britannia

This horse’s ¬†form is better than it looks on paper as he’s consistently raced at the top level against the best horses. That said was only fourth in lower grades last start, place chance.

Highly Recommended

Pipped on the post by Galah last time out so if that horse is favourite this horse shouldn’t be far behind, big chance.


Has won two in a row including last start where he beat both Mahisara and Amah Rock giving him a great form line.

Amah Rock

Loomed as the winner last start but only plugged along so has to be a query at the 1600m, that said he’s won twice and placed twice form for career starts.


Flew home late over 1400m last time out so if there’s a horse that looks suited for the mile it’s him.

First Course

Fourth in that race behind Galah after leading in the early stages. Place chance if he gets an easy time of it out in front.


Hugely disappointing in the Victoria Derby and drops back in distance here, a chance assuming he hasn’t bottomed out.

Covered In Class

Eight in the Galah race before failing as favourite in a benchmark 72 last start, outclassed.

Saint Etienne

Third to Galah at massive odds last start, another early leader and he won’t be quite as long on Saturday.

Red Rain

Sixth through the Instinction form line but did run on ok from back in the field, roughie with a chance at the trip.

So Swift

Last start winner but it was only a maiden, has run 1600m before though and actually worked home nicely late.


Only the two starts, fifth on debut back in June and won first up at Mornington on a heavy 8 on October 30. The unknown prospect that could run a race.

King’s Shilling

Another last start maiden winner jumping in grade but not in distance, worth noting he won that October 28 maiden by a massive six lengths.

Kobe Queen

Only the one start finishing fifth at Mornington, if you want a roughie there are better ones to take.
