1000 Guineas: Misty For Me in focus
by Geir Stabell / Globeform
Printer-friendly version


The colts' classic may have a clear favourite at 'HQ' this weekend but the Qipco 1,000 Guineas (G1) is an open looking affair with several fillies in with a chance. History tells us that those with Group One experience at two have the best chance though, and the Aidan O'Brien trained Misty For Me is well qualified for the short list.

Misty For Me, a Galileo filly out of an unraced half-sister to champion juvenile Fasliyev, captured two Group Ones last year. She was not lacking in experience when winning the one-mile Prix Marcel Boussac (G1) at Longchamp in October. It was her fourth start and she looked very professional. Clashing with the French favourite Helleborine a flashy winner of the Prix d'Aumale (G3) on her previous start Misty For Me put up a game performance to beat that filly by a length. She raced prominently throughout, was headed by Helleborine a furlong from home but rallied to regain command 100 yards from the post and win well. The once raced Rainbow Springs was 3 lengths further adrift in third. Misty For Me had led from start to finish in the 7-furlong Moyglare Stud Stakes (G1) at The Curragh in late August. She won by a length from Laughing Lashes, who had beaten Misty For Me by the same margin when they filled first and second also in the Debutante Stakes (G2) over 7 furlongs at the same course three weeks earlier. Misty For Me's greatest asset is her versatility she has run well on good to firm, soft and very soft ground and this Ballydoyle filly may be in for another good campaign.
