The 2018 Australian Guineas Day results will start rolling through shortly and we are set for a big afternoon of racing at Flemington.

The Australian Guineas is always a strong race and that is the case again in 2018 as a capacity field of quality three-year-olds, which makes for a very competitive betting race.

Cliff’s Edge remains a narrow favourite in the 2018 Australian Guineas betting market with Ladbrokes, but there has also been plenty of support for Grunt ($5.50), Aloisia ($8.50), Main Stage ($11), Mighty Boss ($11) and Addictive Nature ($12).

There is no doubt that the Australian Guineas is the highlight, but there are still some quality gallopers going around in the Bob Hoysted Handicap, Frances Tressady Stakes and the Roy Higgins Quality.

Don’t miss out on all the action at this afternoon!

2018 Australian Guineas Day Results

Race 1 (12:45pm) – $120,000 Listed 3AW Is Football Stakes Results

Nomothaj held-on in the final stages to record a tough victory in the 3AW Is Football Stakes at Flemington this afternoon.

Mark Zahra settled Nomothaj just outside the lead in the early stages of the race and the head-start she had on the backmarkers proved to be the difference late.

The Lindsay Park team were delighted to see Nomothaj return to winning form and the Golden Slipper remains a potential target for the two-year-old.
