Press Statement looks very close to unbeatable as he gets ready to line up in this year’s Randwick Guineas. Not since Octagonal has a colt managed to win a Group 1 in his first three preps.
Press Statement won the J.J Atkins as a two year old, then the Caulfield Guineas last spring and if he can win on Saturday at his current quote of $1.60 he will go down as the shortest priced Randwick Guineas winner.
Next elect in the market is Montaigne who couldn’t get close to Press Statement last time out and now has the disadvantage of being 5th up first prep.
The only likely challenger I can see is Tulsa, he is guaranteed a start in the Randwick Guineas where as in the Aust Guineas he still needs a few scratching. Mike Moroney will decide by end of day which way he goes, but even Tulsa will have a tough time getting past Press Statement
