2020 2,000 Guineas Free Tips and Trends

The Qipco-sponsored 2,000 Guineas is a race run over 1m and is the first of the five English Classics to be run each season – with the 1,000 Guineas run the following day. Both races are staged at Newmarket racecourse, and for 3 year-olds only, the race is also seen as an early-season guide to that year’s Epsom Derby – the last horses to land both races in the same season were Sea The Stars (2009) and Camelot (2012).

Here at Racing Ahead we take a look back at past winners and highlights the key trends and stats ahead of the 2020 renewal – – this year, with the rescheduled fixture list – the English 2000 Guineas is set to be run on Saturday June 6th.

Did you know? 12 of the last 18 2,000 Guineas winners came from the top 3 in the betting?
