Bookie Coral has introduced La Collina into their Qipco 1,000 Guineas betting as 7-1 2nd fav, following the filly’s surprise win in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh. An earlier winner at the Irish track, Maybe, is 5-1 (from 7-1) market leader for the Newmarket Classic.
“Wins for Discourse, Maybe and La Collina this weekend have seen those three fillies take a stranglehold on the Qipco 1,000 Guineas market, and it will take a top class performance in the second half of this season for another filly to replace that trio at the head of the betting,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
