Irish 1000 Guineas Preview (Sun 22nd May 2022)

The Irish 1,000 Guineas is a Group 1 flat horse race in Ireland open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at the Curragh over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May you

It is Ireland's equivalent of the 1000 Guineas, and in recent years it has taken place three weeks after that race. The field usually includes horses which previously contested the English version, and four have achieved victory in both events; Attraction in 2004, Finsceal Beo in 2007, Winter in 2017 and Hermosa in 2019.

The leading horses from the Irish 1,000 Guineas often go on to compete in the following month's Coronation Stakes. The last to win both races was Alpha Centauri in 2018

1) TUESDAY (108) (2) HISTORY (106) (2) HOMELESS SONGS (106) (4) PANAMA RED (105)
Good field for the Irish 1000 Guineas 14 runners going to post ,with Aidan O'Brien running four in the race .No surprise 1000 Guineas third Tuesday has been put in favourite at around 3-1 ,ran promising race at Newmarket behind Cachet ,though looked horse that was crying out for longer trip .Should be in shake-up ,though could get done for pace in closing stages .
At the prices the Aidan O'Brien second string HISTORY looks the each-way value .Has shown improved form with each start,including winning the G3 Cornlescourt Stakes last time over mile at Leopardstown,staying on strongly at finish.Looks open to further improvement over this stiffer mile at Curragh.Odds around 8-1 look decent value,especially with bookmakers paying 4 or 5 places .
 Homeless Song ,winner of the 7f G3 Priory Belle 1000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown in April,looks open to plenty improvement over this longer trip ,though Dermot Weld stable has really been struggling for winners this year (3 out 89 ) has to be big negative .

Of the others Panama Red has each-way claims at around 14-1,after finishing unlucky 2l fifth behind History last time at Leopardstown ,when meeting all sorts trouble in running .Should be in shake-up in open looking race.
(UNPLACED SP 13-2 LOSS £100/1.00PT)
