2013 1000 Guineas Trifecta Tip
Hot Snap (5/2) from Sky Lantern (10/1) and Moth (6/1)
This is a very difficult race to analyse but Hot Snap does appear to be the horse to beat. The Pivotal filly was very impressive in the Nell Gwyn Stakes and the form lines from that race do stack up. Sir Henry Cecil has an excellent record in the 1000 Guineas, having won the race on six occasions, and he is confident he can in the race for the first time since 1999.
Sky Lantern is without a doubt the best value runner in the field. Although she was beaten handily by Hot Snap last start she has the ability to bounce back and with her victory in the Moyglare Stud Stakes she is the only filly in the field that has tasted success at the highest level of racing. At her current 1000 Guineas odds she is an excellent each-way bet.
Moth is a difficult horse to compare to the rest of the field but she was very impressive in the European Breeders Fund Fillies Maiden last start. The daughter of Galileo will have to improve significantly to be a contender in this race but connections have been very confident in the lead-up.
