Impressive Minding Wins 1000 Guineas

Minding was a very impressive winner of the 1000 Guineas and is Even-Money from 11-4 with William Hill to follow up in the Investec Oaks. She had been 6-1 to do the double prior to her victory in the Fillies’ Classic at Newmarket.


“It appears punters were put off backing Minding after Air Force Blue’s flop yesterday. She was a loser, but by no means a bad one,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “We are taking no chances with her price for the Oaks, as we were very impressed with the manner of her Guineas win.”
