2022 Irish 1000 Guineas Betting Tips, Best Bookmakers & Free Bets

The year after the Irish 2000 Guineas was introduced to the schedule, fillies were given an opportunity to shine in the Irish 1000 Guineas.

Like the British equivalent of that fabled Classic, only three-year-olds are allowed to enter the Irish 1000 Guineas, and only the finest filly in the field will be strong enough to come out on top.

The Irish 1000 Guineas headlines the second day of the Irish Guineas Festival, taking pride of place in the centre of Sunday's card.

After the Irish 1000 Guineas

Once the Irish 1000 Guineas has been run, the winners often go on to target the Epsom Oaks and the Irish Oaks the following month. 

If their trainers decide to keep them over a mile, the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot is the obvious option, with the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket another goal later in the summer.

Although the Coral Eclipse is open to both colts and fillies, Irish trainers often prefer to send their fillies back to the Curragh in June to try and land the Pretty Polly Stakes, run over ten furlongs.

Irish 1000 Guineas History

Lady Violette was the inaugural winner of the Irish 1000 Guineas in 1922. Vincent O’Brien’s Valoris came out on top at the Curragh in 1966, before going on to score in the Epsom Oaks a few weeks later.

As there are several weeks between the British and Irish 1000 Guineas, horses often attempt to do the 1000 Guineas double. It took until 2004 for that feat to be achieved, when the great Attraction scored at Newmarket and the Curragh. Three fillies have followed in her footsteps, with Hermosa completing that famous double in 2019.

Aidan O’Brien is the most successful trainer in the history of the Irish 1000 Guineas, saddling eight winners since his first success in 1997. 

Legendary jockey Morny Wing is the winning-most jockey in the Irish 1000 Guineas, with the last of his seven wins coming aboard Sea Symphony in 1947.

British trainers have often travelled to the Curragh to take part in the Irish 1000 Guineas. Mark Johnston, Sir Michael Stoute and Sir Henry Cecil have all landed this Classic prize.

Aidan O'Brien claimed another victory in 2020, as Peaceful powered past Fancy Blue to win the Irish 1000 Guineas. O'Brien then saddled a 1-2 in 2021, as 14/1 outsider Empress Josephine beat stablemate Joan Of Arc.

Irish 1000 Guineas Betting Guide

Although there have been plenty of favourites who have obliged in the recent history of the Irish 1000 Guineas, the fancied horses haven’t had everything their own way. 

There have been a number of upset results this century, the most famous of which being Imagine, who was a 16/1 shot when she won at the Curragh, and still went on to win the Epsom Oaks that same season.

The Curragh Track Report

The track at the Curragh a right-handed, horseshoe shaped track and spans two miles in distance. Although the home straight is only a couple of furlongs long, there is a chute for races between five furlongs and a mile.

Stamina is at a premium at the Curragh. The track is galloping in nature and features a stiff uphill finish.
